Big, then bigger: Trailing 2-0 entering the top of the sixth, Visalia busted out with five runs, keyed by two doubles to start the inning and an error.

Tagged: With the game still in reach in the eighth, Visalia reliever Keith Hessler gave up four runs in his inning of work.

Doing his part: Rawhide right fielder Daniel Bowman went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .266.

Up next: Visalia begins a new series at home against High Desert at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Braden Shipley (1-3, 5.56 ERA) goes for the Rawhide and will oppose Brett Shankin (3-3, 5.83 ERA).
