The Raiders tied the score in the sixth and won it two innings later. The two teams resumed the series Saturday with a doubleheader in West Sacramento (see Roundup).
The D’backs made noise in their last at bat on consecutive base hits by Nate Brown, Brendan Hunter and Joel Pedretti but a controversial pick off had Union Mine come away empty.
Miller was matched by D’back starter John Creason who went seven innings and allowed just four hits. River City bunted its way to the tying run with a hit, an error and a sacrifice to make it 2-2.
Union Mine scored twice in the third as Greg Alloway (2-for-3) singled, Brendan McKillip walked and Alloway scored on Hunter’s sacrifice fly. McKillip raced home on a double steal as Austin Rigsby nabbed second.
