Two singles and an error plated the decisive run in the 9th as the Rafters edged the Solar Sox, 2-1 last night in Arizona.
Luis Reyes, looking like a somewhat svelte Livan Hernandez, tossed five scoreless innings for a no-decision. He gave up two hits and two walks, hit a batter, and struck out three while needing just 65 pitches (39 for strikes) to retire 15 of 19 batters faced.
Tres Barrera was the sole Washington position player to appear in the game. He started at catcher and went 2-for-4 with one whiff while throwing out the only runner who attempted to steal against him (Reyes was pitching).
With the win, Salt River returns to .500 at 3-3. The two teams switch venues and play tonight in Salt River.
