Salt River’s losing streak extended to three as they dropped a second straight game to second-place Mesa, 7-2.
Four Nationals got into the game – two starters and two relievers:
- Carter Kieboom was the DH and went 1-for-5 while batting fifth
- Tres Barrera batted seventh but was 0-for-4 at the plate and 0-for-2 against Mesa’s base thieves
- Jordan Mills (pictured) allowed two of three inherited runners to score on a single and balk in the 5th and struck out three total over two innings
- Taylor Guilbeau worked around a one-out walk to pitch a scoreless inning in the 7th
The gap between the Rafters and the Solar Sox is down to 1½ with four games left to play. The two teams do not play each other this week.
