A 6-2 Salt River victory on Friday lifted the team to 11-10 on the season. Two second-inning runs were all that was granted to the opposing Glendale Desert Dogs, while the Rafters’ bats woke up and delivered to back up the efficient pitching.
Saturday at 5:10 MST (8:10 EST) marks the start of the Fall Stars game, featuring former Stone Crab pitcher Mike Montgomery. The team will be off on Sunday, followed by a Monday contest against the Mesa Solar Sox at 6:35 MST (8:35 EST). Please note that all games after Sunday will have a two hour difference, instead of three, between the Mountain and Eastern time zones due to the end of Daylight Savings, which the state of Arizona does not observe.
