Late Comeback Falls Short

The Rawhide trailed for the entire game after Dillon Dobson put the Giants ahead with a three-run homer in the fourth inning. San Jose (16-25) used rallies in the sixth and eighth innings to score a run apiece and expand the lead to 5-1, and Visalia’s offense wasn’t putting together hits with runners in scoring […]
