The Surprise Rafters would have themselves a close game as the faced the Saguaros in Peoria. The Rafters would score their first run in the second inning and seemed to be pulling away in the fifth, when the Saguaros answered with four runs of their own. However, Peoria would continue to trail for the remainder of the game before a two-run homerun another RBI were scored in the bottom of the ninth that would help close the gap. In what appeared to be a Saguaros comeback, they fell short one run in the bottom of the ninth to lose the game by only one run.

In Scottsdale the Scorpions and the Solar Sox would play in what turned out to be another close game for the day. In the evening matchup, the Solar Sox would take the lead first by scoring four runs in the first and second innings before the Scorpions answered with one run in the third. Both teams would remain scoreless until the Sox added one more insurance run in the top of the seventh inning. The Scorpions would score three more runs but end up falling short as they take the loss. One performance of note was a contribution by San Francisco Giants’ catcher Buster Posey as he would drive in two runs. On the other side of the diamond, Josh Vitters would have a couple of RBI of his own.
