The Peoria Chiefs used a tenth inning, RBI single from Elliot Soto to pull through in a back-and-forth game and defeat the Lake County Captains, 6-5 on Friday night. With the victory, the Chiefs took two of the three games of the series and improve to 42-49 on the season. For the second night in a row, the Captains led after the first half inning as Lake County grabbed a 1-0 lead against Chiefs’ right-hander Starling Peralta. After two quick strikeouts, Jordan Casas reached on a throwing error by Peralta and moved to second when the ball bounced into foul territory. Jesus Aguilar put the Captains on top, and continued to frustrate Peoria, with a RBI double that bounced off the left field wall. The Chiefs won the game in the 10th against reliever Joey Mahalic. Peoria designated hitter Ryan Cuneo lifted a single into left and Greg Rohan laid down a sacrifice bunt then Richard Jones was intentionally walked before Soto bounced a base hit up the middle for the game-winning run. Yohan Gonzalez (4-3) earned the win with one run allowed on two hits in two innings of work. He walked one and struck out two batters. Attendance for the game at O’Brien Field was 2,442.
