Fine finale for 'Rats
August 4, 2012INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
If Ray Delvalle has been in a slump lately, it was hard to tell Friday night.
In fact, it was practically non-existent.
Delvalle and Jake Mahon fueled Richmond’s offense in its regular-season finale at McBride Stadium. Delvalle homered and knocked in three runs and Mahon went 4-for-4 with two RBIs and a run scored in a 9-4 win over Slippery Rock.
“I’ve been in a slump for a little bit. I’m just glad I got out of it in a big way today,” said Delvalle, who was 3-for-4.
Delvalle helped the RiverRats add another big win in a week full of big games.
Richmond remained in first place for the second half in the East Division, tied with first-half winner West Virginia at 16-8. Both teams are 2½ games ahead of Chillicothe.
