Shane Robinson and Saguaros Rally to Win

November 15, 2008 by  

On a gorgeous weekend for baseball Shane Robinson of the Peoria Saguaros lifts his team to victory as they beat the Scottsdale Scorpions in Peoria. The Saguaros, who are tied for first place in the American Division, hold off the Scorpions as they are able to rally in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the team from Scottsdale. Peoria would lead early, scoring a couple of runs in the first three innings of play before the Scorpions had a bit of an offensive spark in the top of the fourth inning. The three runs from Scottsdale would be enough to take the led from the Saguaros and the Scorpions would score once more in the eighth inning to expand their lead. The Saguaros would come back in the bottom of the ninth inning with three runs of their own to take the lead and win the game. Shane Robinson of the St.Louis Cardinals would hit a walk off single that would drive in the run that would win the game as the Saguaros win by a score of 4-5.
In Surprise, the other Peoria team would have a battle with the Rafters hoping to extend their lead in the National Division standings and gain some ground on the Phoenix Desert Dogs. The Javelinas would score only twice in the second inning only to be answered with three runs in the later half of that inning. Once the lead was lost, the Javelinas would struggle for the majority of the game to score runs. The Rafters would strike in the bottom of the second inning with two runs of their own and would extend their lead in both the seventh and eighth innings of play. In the top of the ninth inning, Peoria would perform some outstanding offense by scoring six runs only to fall short. The excellent ninth inning would not be enough to rally against the Rafters as the Javelinas lose a game in the standings against Surprise and are unable to gain any ground on the Phoenix Desert Dogs.
In the final game of the week, the Solar Sox faced off against Phoenix in Mesa as the Sox hoped to gain some ground on the Peoria Saguaros. The battle of the division leaders would be a one-sided game as the Solar Sox prove to be too much for the Desert Dogs to handle. Phoenix would score early in the first inning and would have trouble scoring for the remainder of the game. The Philadelphia Phillies’ Andrew Carpenter would pitch five innings with five strikeouts and Scott Cousins of the Florida Marlins would go two-for-four with three RBIs to help the Mesa cause. The Peoria Saguaros and the Mesa Solar Sox remain tied for first place as both teams win this Saturday.
