RiverRats race to win

August 3, 2012
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Richmond remains in control of its own destiny.

The RiverRats are still in first place, still contending for a playoff spot and still powering their way to wins at McBride Stadium.

Cody Campbell drove in three runs, Jordan Fortner homered and Richmond downed Slippery Rock 7-5 on Thursday night.

The RiverRats are tied for first place with West Virginia, and are 1½ games ahead of Chillicothe as the Prospect League’s East Division race winds down in the second half.

West Virginia already has a playoff spot sewn up by virtue of winning the first half.

“Our guys know it’s a must-win every night,” said Richmond manager Tyler Lairson.

It turned into a RiverRat rally on this night.

Slippery Rock took early leads with the long ball. Zach Looney led the game off with a solo home run, and Derek Peake gave the Sliders a 4-2 advantage after a two-run home run in the top of the second.
