Errors proved costly as visiting Rio Vista took advantage of five Grizzly miscues in the top of the seventh inning Thursday to extend a one-run lead into a 13-7 Sierra Delta League victory.
Overall the Griz committed 14 errors, a season high.
Golden Sierra suffered its first league loss but should have been a lock to win after defeating the Rams 13-2 earlier in the season at Rio Vista.
The Grizzlies started well as Maci Ruiz, after a 1-2-3 top of the first inning, tripled to lead off the bottom half and kept running after the incoming throw was botched.
The Rams went up 5-2 before Golden Sierra chipped away. Samantha Bastien hit a solo home run in the sixth and after another run crossed the Griz trailed just 6-5 before the bottom fell out in the seventh.
Bastien went 2-for-3 on the day. On the mound, Holly Johnson and Marina Alexander pitched for Golden Sierra.
