SLIPPERY ROCK, PA. — Good things come to those who wait — and the RiverRats had to wait a little longer than usual this week.
Richmond pushed two runs across in the top of the 11th to halt Slippery Rock 10-8 in extra innings Sunday night at the Sliders’ Critchfield Park.
The ’Rats hadn’t played a full game in nearly a week, since defeating the Sliders at Slippery Rock last Monday. Three days off for the All-Star break followed, along with rainouts at West Virginia that derailed Richmond’s two-game series with the Miners on Friday and Saturday.
Finally getting back on the field gave the RiverRats a chance to extend their second-half winning streak to seven straight.
