Monday, June 19, 2017

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Austin Byler hit a run-scoring double in the first inning, leading the Visalia Rawhide to a 5-2 win over the San Jose Giants on Sunday.

San Jose had runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth, but Ronnie Jebavy flew out to end the game.

The double by Byler, part of a two-run inning, gave the Rawhide a 1-0 lead before Marty Herum hit a sacrifice fly later in the inning.

After Visalia added a run in the second when Matt McPhearson hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Daniel Lockhart, the Giants cut into the deficit in the third inning when Daniel Carbonell hit an RBI single, driving in Matt Winn.

The Rawhide later tacked on two runs in the eighth when Matt Jones hit an RBI double and then scored on a single by Grant Heyman to secure the victory.

Visalia right-hander Jose Almonte (5-5) picked up the win after allowing one run on five hits over five innings. Opposing starter Mark Reyes (3-9) took the loss in the California League game after giving up three runs and six hits over five innings.

Winn doubled and singled, driving in a run and also scoring one for the Giants.

Visalia improved to 11-4 against San Jose this season.
