AFL 10/23/13 recap: Glendale gets back in the win column

New, 51 comments

The Desert Dogs pitching was on display on Wednesday as the Glendale staff combined to 3-hit the Javelinas

After showing almost no offense over the past three games, the Desert Dogs were able to get back on track as they shutout the Javelinas 4 to 0. While Glendale finally scored some runs, pitching was obviously the story in this game as the 5 Desert Dog hurlers combined to allow just 3 hits. Starter Alex Meyer actually permitted all 3 of those base knocks in his 4.1 innings of work, but that was all he gave up as he picked up his second win of the season. The four relievers then tossed 4.2 no-hit frames, and a pair of Dodger relievers were included in the mix. Jarret Martin threw the longest as he recorded 5 outs, and while he didn't allow a hit he did walk a pair. Yimi Garcia followed with a perfect frame that included one strikeout, then Colby Suggs and Nick Wittgren, both with the Marlins, completed the shutout with a flawless inning each.

At the dish the Desert Dogs still weren't overly impressive despite the win as they collected just 2 extra base hits in the game (both two-baggers). Colin Moran (Marlins) drove in a pair with a timely single, while Brandon Jacobs (White Sox) doubled home a run. Brian Cavazos-Galvez was the only Dodger in the lineup, and he went 0 for 3.
