Rawhide Report for 6/6: Lancaster 8, Visalia 5

The Fresno BeeJune 6, 2014 

Losing continues: Visalia lost its fourth straight, and for the eighth time in its past 10 games, as Lancaster scored five in the eighth to pull out an 8-5 victory Friday in a Cal League game at Rawhide Ballpark.

Just walk away: Four walks contributed to the JetHawks' rally, that erased the Rawhide's 5-3 lead. Visalia pitchers walked nine batters in all on the night — negating the impact of an 11-strikeout night for the pitching staff, eight for starter Braden Shipley.

Up next: Visalia LH Spencer Arroyo (4-2, 3.31 ERA), a 31st-round selection by Philadelphia out of Modesto College in the 2008 draft, faces RH Kyle Westwood (4-3, 2.97) as the series continues at 7 p.m. Saturday.
