Rawhide Report 7/13: Visalia 4, Inland Empire 3

The Fresno BeeJuly 13, 2014 

A wild walkoff: Visalia couldn't get a hit with runners in scoring position for 8 1/3 innings while going 0 for 10, but when it mattered most — tied in the bottom of the ninth — Socrates Brito came up clutch. With runners on second and third, Brito sliced a single up the middle to lift the Rawhide to a 4-3 walkoff victory over Inland Empire.

Bangin' Brandon: Visalia 3B Brandon Drury came up big for the Rawhide in the seventh inning, smashing a game-tying two-run home run. It was Drury's 16th home run of the season, and third in as many games.

Up next: The Rawhide will send a pitcher to be determined against the 66ers' RH Elliot Morris (2-3, 4.69 ERA) in Monday's 1:05 p.m. matchup.
