Garrison Continues to Impress

November 4, 2009 by  

feat_afl_0040In a close game in Peoria, the Saguaros would edge the Solar Sox by a score of 2 to 1. The lone Mesa run would come from Shortstop and Cubs prospect Starlin Castro as he would hit a homer in the fourth inning to score first. The Saguaros would answer right away with a run of their own in that inning on a Brandon Hicks single that would score Matt McBride. The Saguaros would score again in the bottom of the fifth on a Lance Zawadzki single that would score Jose Vallejo. Pitcher Steve Garrison would throw three consecutive scoreless innings for the Saguaros as he continues to impress in the AFL after recovering from shoulder surgery last year.

The Surprise Rafters would travel to Phoenix to defeat the first-place Desert Dogs by one run. In the close game the Rafters would take the lead in the first inning and were able to maintain it through two. The Desert Dogs would eventually tie the game in the third inning and take the lead in the fourth off of an RBI triple and a sacrifice fly that would score two runs for the team. In the top of the fifth Surprise would tie the game again as a result of a home run by Texas prospect Doug Hogan and a runner scored on a wild pitch by Heath Rollins. In the seventh inning both teams would earn another run each as the game would remain deadlocked, this time, at five a piece. In the bottom of the 11th inning, the Rafters would be able to earn one more run off of an RBI double by Marcus Lemon to win the game in extra innings.

In another close game in Scottsdale the Javelinas would beat the Scottsdale Scorpions as they maintain their lead in their division. The productive third inning for the Javelinas would end up being all that they needed as they would score three runs in the inning. Jordan Danks, Russ Mitchell and Lucas May would each drive in a run for the Javelinas in the third inning. In the bottom of the fifth inning Jose Tabata would be able to drive in a run for the Scorpions who would not score again until the ninth inning. The Scorpions were only able to gather on run as the Javelinas hang on to win the game. Pitcher Josh Butler would get the win as he would throw for three innings, striking out four and allowing no earned runs.
