Salt River exploded against the Mesa Solar Sox on Tuesday evening, belting out a seven-run third inning – all of which were unearned and thanks in part to three errors committed by the Mesa defense, who totaled five on the night. The Rafters added one more run in the eighth to round out an 8-0 victory.
The Rafters currently trail Mesa by a game and a half in the AFL East division. The team hopes to gain further ground in a Wednesday evening game against the Scottsdale Scorpions. First pitch is scheduled for 7:08 MST (9:08 EST).
No former Stone Crabs made appearances in this game.
