Gavin Sheets batted cleanup for the Desert Dogs tonight. In his first plate appearance, Sheets put up a good fight before striking out swinging at a slider on the sixth pitch. In his second plate appearance, Sheets reached on a throwing error by the Scorpions’ second baseman. Sheets hit a sharp liner that was hauled in by the center fielder in the sixth, and he struck out again in the eighth. Sheets was the only player in the White Sox’s system to appear in this game.
Nick Matom opened up the scoring with an RBI single, and Alex Bohm hit a sacrifice fly to put the Scorpions up, 2-0.
I’m the seventh, José García hit an RBI single to cut the Desert Dogs’ deficit in half, and Jonathan India drew a walk with the bases loaded to force in the tying run. However, the rally fell short, as Matom came up big again for the Scorpions, as he hit a walk-off homer, as the Scorpions won by a score of 3-2. The loss dropped the Desert Dogs to 0-3.
