Arizona Fall League Gameday Thread

New, comments

Might be the last gameday thread for 2013, unless the Salt River Rafters can catch the Mesa Solar Sox in the final week and make the championship game next Saturday. It's the last instant replay trial game, available on the MLB Network; not sure about online.

The Solar Sox already played today, rolling to an easy 9-4 win over Surprise, so the Rafters will want to beat the Peoria Javelinas tonight, to keep half a game back. There are only four games next week, for Salt River that means home and away contests against Glendale and Scottsdale, so there's an increasingly small margin for error. The Rafters beat the Javelinas 3-1 last night, and had the biggest win of the season when they two sides faced off the time before that, thumping Peoria by a 20-0 margin, which included our shortstop Nick Ahmed's only home-run of the AFL. He's in the line-up again tonight, along with two other D-backs prospects:

  1. Kenny Wilson CF .240
  2. Andy Burns 1B .339
  3. Jake Lamb 3B .290
  4. Stephen Piscotty RF .338
  5. Kyle Parker DH .276
  6. James Ramsey LF .258
  7. Nick Ahmed SS .204
  8. Mike Freeman 2B .283
  9. Luke Maile C .143
