Just one National got into yesterday’s game in the AFL – which the Rafters won, 10-9 – but what a game Carter Kieboom had.
Kieboom, who started and played second base, played error-free ball and made three assists and two putouts, including the middle man on a ’round-the-horn twin-killing in the 4th and a 1-4-3 DP to end the game.
At the plate, he singled twice, scored twice, stole two bases, and smacked a two-run HR.
With the win, Salt River kept pace with Mesa with an 8-5 mark in the AFL East. They play tonight in Scottsdale, then finish out the week with games at and against Peoria.
