Three Cardinals saw action in Salt River’s one-run loss Tuesday afternoon at Mesa.

Masyn Winn hit second in the Rafters lineup and played shortstop. In the first inning, Winn struck out swinging. He struck out swinging for the second time in the third inning.

Winn grounded out to third base in the fifth. In the seventh, Winn walked, stole second base and scored on a double by Walker.

In his final plate appearance in the ninth, Winn grounded out to the shortstop.

Walker started in center field and hit cleanup for the Rafters. Walker led off the second inning and struck out swinging. In his second plate appearance in the fourth he flew out to the second baseman.

In the sixth, Walker drew a free pass and stole second base. He then was caught attempting to steal third after he was unable to advance on an infield single. A subsequent walk and passed ball would have scored him from third, so the caught stealing cost the Rafters a run.

Walker doubled in the seventh to score teammate Winn from second. He then scored on a single. In the ninth, Walker reached on an error but was left stranded as the game ended.

Jordan Walker

Mike Antico pinch ran in the seventh. He stole second base but was left stranded. Antico remained in the game as the designated hitter but never made a plate appearance as he was replaced in the ninth by a pinch-hitter.

Salt River is 11-17 on the season.

Saturday’s game:  at Scottsdale, Connor Thomas LHP (1-0, 1.59) vs. TBA 1:35 CT.
