The Desert Dogs drew first blood against the Mexican Pacific League Eagles, with a 7-2 win on Tuesday. The two clubs face off again on Thursday.
Rutherford tripled, but later grounded into a double play.
Sheets again assumed the cleanup role and had two hits and his first AFL RBI. He too later GIDP’d.
Adolfo played another flawless game in right field (no assists though, the scouting report on his arm is getting back around!) and got on base twice with walks.
Sousa struck out the side in the ninth, as Mexicali struck out for eight of its final nine outs and the final six batters of the game.
Glendale hosts Salt River tomorrow and sees the Águilas again on Thursday, as they enjoy a mini-homestand this week.
