Glendale Desert Dogs 3 at Peoria Javelinas 8 (seven innings)
Three Cardinals position players saw action in Friday’s contest between Glendale and Peoria. The 8-3 loss by Glendale was the team’s 13th of the AFL season. As the Desert Dogs starting pitcher Bobby Wahl (MIL) was knocked out after getting just two outs, the visitors fell behind in the bottom of the first inning and trailed the rest of the way. Friday’s AFL games were all limited to seven innings because of Saturday’s Fall Stars Game.
Kramer Robertson played second base and led off for Glendale. He was 1-for-3 with two RBI, plus drew a walk in his first at bat and later scored on a passed ball. In the second inning, Robertson singled on a line drive to center to plate Glendale’s second run, and in the fourth he drove in his club’s third and final run on a ground out. He grounded into a double play in the seventh. Robertson either scored or drove in all three Glendale runs.
Elehuris Montero started at third base and hit fifth in the lineup. He was 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base. In his other two plate appearances, Montero flied out to right field and popped out to third. He is hitting .194/.375/.290 in 10 AFL games.
Conner Capel was the center fielder and hit sixth for Glendale. He went 0-for-3, including a strikeout, a fly out to right field and line out to second. He is hitting .204/.271/.222 in 15 AFL games.
No other Cardinals saw action.
Glendale is 6-13 in the season and is in last place in the AFL West.
Saturday’s game: AFL Fall Stars Game, 7:08 CT. The Cardinals have two players on the West Division roster, catcher Ivan Herrera, and pitcher Seth Elledge.
