Glendale rallied from an early 5-0 deficit with three in the 3rd, three in the 6th, and a pair in the 9th for an 8-7 walkoff win over Scottsdale.
Andrew Stevenson and Osvaldo Abreu were both in the starting lineup while Fall Star (ugh) Ryan Brinley and Nick Lee made appearances in relief.
Stevenson played RF, where he made on putout, and went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored. He also stole his fifth base for the Desert Dogs.
Abreu played shortstop and struck three times while going 0-for-4. He committed his third error of the fall and made six assists.
Lee let in the baserunner that got on courtesy of Abreu’s miscue in the 6th and got just one out in the 7th before giving way to Brinley with the bases loaded. Brinley rolled a double play to get out of the 7th but was touched for a run in the 8th on a walk and two hits.
The AFL West cellar-dweller Desert Dogs visit the AFL East-leading Solar Sox this afternoon. Austin Voth is scheduled to pitch tomorrow.
