It wasn't pretty, but the Arizona Rattlers continued their victorious ways, notching a 55-45 win over the Pittsburgh Power at US Airways Center Saturday night. The win was Arizona's fourth straight and sixth in their last seven contests.

Nick Davila threw for 282 yards and five touchdowns, and Trandon Harvey scored three times, including a 57-yard kickoff return that stretched the Arizona lead to 21 points late in the 3rd quarter.

While the win pushed the Rattlers' record to a league-best 9-3, head coach Kevin Guy wasn't exactly happy about the way his team finished, allowing Pittsburgh to creep to within seven points with under three minutes to play.

"We won't play like that again, I can promise you," Guy told me on the field after the game.

Coupled with San Jose's loss at Milwaukee, the Rattlers took over sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division with six games remaining.

The game was marred by a total of 27 penalties between the two teams. Pittsburgh fell to 2-9 and lost their sixth straight.

The Rattlers host the Iowa Barnstormers Saturday night at US Airways Center.
