feat_afl_0037Friday’s games were all particularly close as the AFL prepares to wrap up its second week of play. In his third Fall League appearance, former USC pitcher Brad Boxberger would earn his first win as the Saguaros Edge the Solar Sox.  In a relatively high-scoring game Boxberger would allow no runs during his two innings pitched. Peoria would lead for the majority of the game as they received help from Zack Cozart with two home runs and four RBI. For the Sox, Minnesota prospect Chris Parmelee would drive in five. Mesa seemed to be staging a comeback in the top of the ninth inning but, would end up falling short as they lose to the Saguaros by one run.

For the Phoenix Desert Dogs, Grant Desme would hit his seventh homer of the AFL in their battle against the Rafters. In another game that would yield several runs, there would be plenty of offensive contribution from both teams. For the Rafters, Yankees’ prospect Brandon Laird would drive in five runs, going 3-for-4 with a homerun and a double to add some numbers for the team.. With a score of 15 to 12, the Rafters would prevail as they downed the Desert Dogs in one of the two afternoon games.

The Javelinas would score a total of seven runs that inning to tie the game.
