UTICA — The Watertown Rapids scored three runs in the ninth inning, but it wasn’t enough as the Utica Blue Sox escaped with a 7-6 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League win Monday night a Murnane Field.

The Rapids’ Matt Tobin was throw out at home, trying to score the tying run, after a Seth Petry wild pitch was corralled by catcher Angel Difederico and he rifled the ball home for the final out. Watertown (7-13) suffered its fifth straight loss. Utica improved to 11-7.

Christian Layne slapped a two-run triple in the eighth and then scored on a wild pitch to tie the game at 3-3 for the Rapids.

Watertown travels to Little Falls to play the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs at 6:35 tonight.

n The Rapids fought back from a five-run deficit after 4 1/2 innings to eventually force extra innings, but fell to the DiamondDawgs, 14-10, that took 11 innings Sunday night at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds.
