They slugged it out for 6.1 innings, but not with their bats.

Big pitches and big defensive plays crushed threats, stymied rallies and kept the Rio Mesa and Buena highs baseball teams locked in a 1-1 tie.

After one final stellar defensive play in the bottom of the seventh, came the breakthrough.

Riley Fagan grounded sharply to deep short and easily beat the throw to first to score Josh McMurrey from third base and earn host Rio Mesa a dramatic, 2-1 victory over Buena in their CIF-Southern Section Division 2 wild-card playoff game Tuesday.
