OGDEN, Utah – Ogden overcame an early four-run deficit and the Raptors held off a furious comeback attempt from the Billings Mustangs for an 11-10 Pioneer League win on Saturday night.

Aristides Aquino homered in the eighth and ninth innings, and Brian O’Grady also homered in the ninth as the Mustangs rallied for six runs over the final two innings. But an 11-4 deficit proved too much to overcome, and the Mustangs lost for the ninth time in their last 11 games.

Alex Blandino and Taylor Sparks also hit home runs for the Mustangs, who took a 4-0 lead in the third inning.

Tyler Mahle (2-3), making his first start since last Sunday’s complete-game shutout win, started the game with two shutout innings before the Raptors put up three runs in the third and three more in the fourth. A five-run fifth blew the game open for Ogden, which won its third straight game.

Devan Ahart and Julian Leon each drove in three runs for the Raptors. Starter J.D. Underwood (3-2) allowed four runs in six innings, while Lenix Osuna allowed a run but got the final out for his second save.

The teams meet up again on Sunday in the second game of their four-game series.
