Nick Lee failed to retire a batter in the 9th, giving up the lone run in a 1-0 walkoff by Glendale over Salt River.
A single, walk, and another single was the game-winning sequence as just three of Lee’s eight pitches went for strikes.
Three — yes, three — other Nationals saw game action.
Christopher Bostick led off and played 2B but went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Defensively, he took part in a double play, had three putouts and two assists and committed an error.
Spencer Kieboom was the DH and reached base twice with a single and a walk for an 1-for-3 game that got him off the interstate with a .200BA (2-for-10) in four games thus far.
Finally, Wirkin “For The Weekend” Estevez made his AFL debut with an inning of relief, though he walked two.
The loss drops Salt River to .500 at 3-3. The two teams switch venues and rematch tonight.
