Visalia, CA - The Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino fell the Visalia Rawhide (7-26) 4-2 at Valley Strong Ballpark on Thursday. The victory snapped a ten-game losing streak for the Rawhide as the 66ers stranded 11 runners on base and were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position in the loss.

The Rawhide took a 1-0 lead against Inland Empire after Ronny Simon singled and eventually scored on Glenallen Hill Jr.'s single.

After Jeremy Arocho drew his third walk of the game, Visalia put in their closer Mailon Arroyo. The righty walked the next batter he faced to load the bags and put the tying run aboard but Arroyo (SV, 3) struck out Low-A West RBI leader Jeremiah Jackson and got Braxton Martinez to fly out to end the game. Inland Empire (15-17) drew a season-best ten walks but only one batter who took a free pass came around to score. D'Shawn Knowles (eight games) and Martinez (seven games) each saw hitting streaks snapped.
