In the most lopsided game of the AFL so far this season, the Salt River Rafters demolished the Peoria Javelinas 20-0 on Saturday. The pitching staff was outstanding, led by Bo Schultz who went five shutout innings and gave up just two hits with five strikeouts. Henry Garcia and Cole White each struck out two in his inning. The whole staff only walked one batter the entire game, showing excellent command. The offensive story involved four home runs, including two (and six RBI) from catcher Dustin Garneau, one from shortstop Nick Ahmed and another from second basemen Cristhian Adames who finished with a four-for-five game and was just a triple short of a cycle with a walk, four runs scored and four RBI. Stephen Piscotty and Richie Shaffer had three hits each (Shaffer included two doubles and two walks) and Andy Burns and Mike Freeman had two hits apiece.

There wasn’t much (good) to tell for Peoria. The whole team only had five hits with Chris Taylor getting two himself. Starter Jason Adam gave up six runs in four innings and the only pitcher to avoid giving up a run was Mike Nesseth.
