Peoria’s pitchers retired 19 batters in a row before giving up a one-out double in the bottom of the 7th. Two right-side groundouts later, the Javelinas completed the 4-0 eclipse of the Solar Sox for a seven-inning, one-hit shutout and a spot in today’s play-in game against the Desert Dogs.
Three Nationals appeared in the game:
- Drew Millas caught and batted cleanup. He went 1-for-4 with a strikeout.
- Yasel Antuna was the No. 9 hitter and had a single in three trips to the plate.
- Amos Willingham lost the perfect game in the 7th but struck out one while pitching a scoreless 7th inning. He threw 14 pitches, 10 for strikes.
The winner of tonight’s game between second-place Glendale (15-13) and third-place Peoria (14-14) will play first-place Surprise (19-10) tomorrow night at Scottsdale Stadium.
