Desert Dogs wreck Rafters

Desert Dogs wreck Rafters

Glendale bags a big win in its AFL finale Glendale Desert Dogs 4, Salt River Rafters 2 Luis Basabe (CF): 1-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 SB Zach Thompson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, SV (3) In the last game of the year, we only get a Basabe lineup appearance, and he made an impact right out of the gate. In the bottom of the first, after the Desert Dogs allowed two runs, Basabe blooped a single to open up the inning, and stole second. He would come around to score, and Glendale would tack on one more run to tie the game. Luis Basabe gets things started with a leadoff single today. He stole...

Desert Dogs limping down the stretch

But Luis Basabe and Laz Rivera did provide Sox positives Surprise Saguaros 9, Glendale Desert Dogs 2 Luis Basabe (CF): 1-for-4, 1 BB, 1 K Luis Robert (DH): 1-for-5, 0 BB, 1 K Laz Rivera (SS): 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K Danny Dopico: 1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K Basabe started off the game on the right foot, with a five-pitch walk. However, once Robert was up with two runners on base, he fouled out and Glendale could not muster a run. Surprise did not squander its chances, putting up a four spot in the bottom of the first. Luis Basabe smokes a single to center off Blue Jays pitcher Nate...

Desert Dogs and Sox go down

Desert Dogs and Sox go down

Glendale fell behind early, and our prospects could not collect a hit Scottsdale Scorpions 5, Glendale Desert Dogs 3 Luis Basabe (CF): 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K Luis Robert (DH): 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K Laz Rivera (SS): 0-for-3, 0 BB, 1 K, E It was not just a tough day for the Glendale Desert Dogs, but for all White Sox involved. Off the bat, the Scorpions jumped to a two-run lead in the first inning. It would eventually grow to 5-1 by the end of the third, as Glendale’s starter was pulled. The deficit was too large for the Dogs to scrape back, as they would wind up losing, 5-3. Their bullpen did a...

Basabe, Robert pace Desert Dogs win

Basabe, Robert pace Desert Dogs win

Three walks from little Luis are chased by two hits from big Luis Glendale Desert Dogs 9, Peoria Javelinas 5 Luis Basabe (leadoff, CF): 1-for-2, 2 R, 3 BB, SB (3), 8-2-4 assist to second base (.214) Luis Robert (cleanup, DH): 2-for-4, 2 RBIs (.356) What a day for Chicago White Sox hitters! Basabe, who has been scuffling in limited AFL time, bagged a hit and three walks, singling in the first, lining out in the second, and walking in the fourth, sixth (and stealing second) and eighth. Luis Basabe gets things started for the Desert Dogs with a leadoff single in the bottom of the 1st...

Zach Thompson rocked in ugly AFL day for Sox

Zach Thompson rocked in ugly AFL day for Sox

Rivera and Basabe go hitless in Glendale loss Peoria Javelinas 3, Glendale Desert Dogs 1 (7) Laz Rivera (2B, batting seventh): 0-for-2 (.255) Luis Basabe (CF, batting ninth): 0-for-2, K, assist (.192) L: Zach Thompson (RP, sixth inning): 2⁄3 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB (4.15) It was probably good this one only went seven innings (I believe with the AFL All-Star Game tomorrow, all Friday games were trimmed to seven innings), because Glendale’s effort — buoyed by three different White Sox prospects — wasn’t so hot. The two White Sox hitters in the game did nothing to advance the Desert Dogs...

Dopico capsizes Rafters with four Ks

Four White Sox factor in Glendale’s extra-inning win Glendale Desert Dogs 12, Salt River Rafters 6 (10) Laz Rivera (batting third, 2B): 1-for-5, R, K, BB (.265) Luis Basabe (pinch-ran in 10th, DH): 0-for-0, R (.208) Tanner Banks (SP): 5 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 2 ER, BB, 2 K, 39 GS, 69 pitches/45 strikes (2.87) Danny Dopico (pitched 6th-7th): 2 IP, H, 4 K, 22 pitches/17 strikes (2.79) Weird score for an extra-inning game, eh? Salt River came back with a run in the bottom of the ninth to send the game to extra time, but the Desert Dogs weren’t having it. Glendale put up a six-spot in the top of the...

Desert Dogs downed again

Desert Dogs downed again

Basabe, Rivera, and Burdi all get work in an 8-1 loss Peoria Javelinas 8, Glendale Desert Dogs 1 Luis Basabe (CF): 0-for-2, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 SB Laz Rivera (2B): 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K Zack Burdi: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K With Basabe and Rivera hitting No. 1 and 2 in the lineup, the White Sox prospects got action quick. Basabe walked in his first at-bat, and stole second. Meanwhile, Rivera popped out to strand Basabe. In typical Desert Dog fashion, the pitching was ... not ideal. Peoria scored four runs in the second inning. That was all the Javelinas needed for the win, but Rivera tried to...

Desert Dogs back in the loss column

Basabe and Dopico did well — but not well enough Mesa Solar Sox 11, Glendale Desert Dogs 8 Luis Basabe (LF): 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 0 K Laz Rivera (2B): 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K Danny Dopico: 1 2⁄3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K There was a lot of offense early in this one, with 10 runs in the first two innings. However, Basabe and Rivera were not involved. Both recorded outs in their first at-bat and then Basabe walked in his second. He also had a good defensive play? Luis Basabe just made a strong throw home. It was cut-off, but it would've been a close play at the plate if the...

Rafters drown Glendale, 2-1

Rafters drown Glendale, 2-1

The Desert Dogs had a lead, but it quickly evaporated Salt River Rafters 2, Glendale Desert Dogs 1 (10) Luis Basabe: 0-for-3, 1 BB, 1 K Zach Thompson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K Another game where just one White Sox hitting prospect saw action, with Rivera getting a day off and Robert still out because of injury. But those two didn’t miss much. Luis Basabe did not reach base in his first two at-bats, but was able to draw a walk with his third. Hey, if you’re reading, you’re starved for some White Sox action, so here’s base on balls video! Luis Basabe draws a walk after working...

Seven, in eleven

Glendale drops seventh straight, in extras; Basabe and Rivera tap safeties Scottsdale Scorpions 2, Glendale Desert Dogs 1 (11) Luis Basabe (leadoff, CF): 2-for-4, BB Laz Rivera (batting ninth, 2B): 1-for-4, R, 2 K Zack Burdi: IP, 2 K Danny Dopico: 1 2⁄3 IP, unearned run, BB, 3 K ... loss! (see below) This time, at least you can say it took extra innings for Glendale to lose. After Laz Rivera (leadoff single) scored on a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, the Desert Dogs held serve until the bottom of the 11th, when Glendale’s Tyler Erwin walked in the winning run. A single fly out was...
