The San Diego Waves scored one run in the bottom of the ninth inning to force extra innings and then scored on a bases-loaded infield chopper in the bottom of the 10th Saturday for a 4-3 summer collegiate baseball win over the San Luis Obispo Rattlers.
The Rattlers (16-7) downed the Waves 8-2 on Friday.
The Rattlers scored first and led until the bottom of the ninth when San Diego rallied with two outs to tie it.
“They got back in it and they battled and played well,” Rattlers coach Aaron Levin said. “You have to give them a lot of credit. Our guys gave great effort as well. It was just a great baseball game.”
The Waves got a lead-off double to start the bottom of the 10th and the runner advanced to third on a wild pitch. The Rattlers then intentionally walked the bases loaded and after an infield flyout, San Diego got the winning run to score on a infield chopper.
Steven Lozier had two of San Luis Obispo’s six hits. Starting pitcher Jason Bell gave up two runs, one earned, and struck out four in 5 2⁄3 innings.
