Make it nine wins in a row without a loss for Reedley College to start the 2017 JC baseball season.
The Tigers rallied for two in the top of the ninth for a 6-5 victory over host Sierra in a nonconference game Tuesday in Rocklin.
Leadoff hitter Sawyer Pittman walked and stole second, Tony Riley singled to put runners at first and third and Cooper Morrison grounded out to tie it. Riley moved to third on a passed ball and one batter later scored on Kevin Page’s squeeze bunt.
Chris Galarza (2-0) entered with two outs in the eighth and was on the mound long enough for Page to throw out a runner trying to steal. Joe Riley allowed a paiir of one-out singles in the ninth but escaped for his sixth save.
