AFL recap: Desert Dogs win 4th straight

BCG went yard for the Desert Dogs on Saturday - Brandon Lennox

Brian Cavazos-Galvez connected on his second homer of the season while Yimi Garcia picked up his first save on Saturday

The Desert Dogs won their 4th straight game on Saturday after they defeated the Scorpions 3 to 2. Unfortunately their late winning streak may be too little too late as Glendale is still 2.5 games out of first place with just 4 games to play.

The Desert Dogs scored just two batters into the bottom of the first after a Marcus Semien (White Sox) double brought home leadoff man Brent Keys (Marlins). Three innings later Brian Cavazos-Galvez connected on a solo homer, his second bomb of the AFL season, and then later in the frame the aforementioned Keys singled in a run. Pratt Maynard was the only other Dodger in the lineup but he went 0 for 4 with a trio of strikeouts.

Staked to a 3 run lead starter Andrew Heaney (Marlins) continued the recent trend of excellent pitching by Glendale as he tossed 5 innings of no-hit ball. Heaney was actually nearly perfect during his time on the mound as a single walk was his only blemish. A couple of Dodger relievers allowed the only runs of the game for Glendale, starting with Jarret Martin who allowed 2 hits and a walk in the 7th inning. In the 9th Yimi Garcia came into the game for his first save opportunity, and while he did convert he was touched up for his a run on a HBP, a double, and a sac fly.

11/9/13 Glendale Desert Dogs Box Score

Coming up: There is no game on Sunday, and in fact the surging Desert Dogs only have 4 games left in their season. As I mentioned above, at 2.5 games out of first place it's going to take a miracle for Glendale to climb into first place.
