RiverDawgs rally for nonleague victory

The Southern Oregon RiverDawgs had to come from behind twice before posting a 7-5 victory over the San Jose Seals in nonleague amateur baseball Thursday at Harry & David Field.

The RiverDawgs (8-4) scored three unearned runs in the fifth inning to take the lead for good in the see-saw contest. Mitchell Nelson's two-run double to left scored the tying and go-ahead runs as Southern Oregon grabbed 6-5 advantage.

The RiverDawgs tacked on an insurance run in the sixth when Johnny Omahen singled with one out, moved to second on a ground out and scored on Jared Adamson's single.

Jon Flinn picked up his first save of the year with one inning of perfect relief.

Aaron Hassel collected two hits and one RBI for the RiverDawgs.

Southern Oregon hosts San Jose again at 7 p.m. today at Harry & David Field.
