Well. Down 2-0 to Salt Lake heading into the top of the 9th, Fresno managed to tie the game up at 2-2...and then gave up the walk-off (unearned) run a half-inning later, Fresno loses 3-2. Handsome Dan Straily threw 4IP (83 pitches, 53 strikes), with 6H/2ER, 2K:1BB; Richard Rodriguez allowed just one hit, 2K:1BB in three scoreless innings; Kevin Chapman took the loss with 1.2IP, 2H/1R (0ER), 1K:0BB.
But my my, L.J. Hoes had himself a night, going 5x5 with a double and an RBI; Joe Sclafani (who committed the throwing error that led to the walkoff) was 1x3 with two walks. Jon Singleton had a hit and a walk, Preston Tucker added your 2nd RBI, and Max Stassi hit a triple.
