Another day, another slugfest as the Rafters rallied late and took this one from the Scorpions, 7-6 in 11 innings.
Just two Nationals appeared in the game, but both started.
• Daniel Johnson led off and played centerfield again, this time without an error. At the plate he was 1-for-5 with a walk and a steal.
• Carter Kieboom batted second and played second base. He singled and tripled in six at-bats and scored a run.
Salt River and Scotssdale switch venues and play again tonight, which closes out the short week.
Tomorrow night, the league fellat…er, salutes its sponsors and holds its sixth annual Bowman Hitting Challenge. No official word on which National hitter will be participating.
