AFL Update: Nov. 16, 2017

The Solar Sox clinched the AFL East with a 5-2 win over Surprise.

Like yesterday, there were just two Nats in the starting lineup.

Victor Robles reached base twice without getting hit by a pitch as he drew walks in 7th and 9th innings. Defensively, he had two putouts in centerfield.

Daniel Johnson ended an oh-for-ever streak (Ok, fine – 25 AB’s) with a two-out double in the 5th. Pictured is his reaction to the bench cheering for the hit. He fielded just one ball in right field, a single to lead off the bottom of the 1st.

The two teams rematch and play the final regular-season game this afternoon in Mesa.

      1. Nada on all three. Mapes I don’t even know for sure if he’s had surgery (again), but that’s probably the right inference.
