The Glendale Desert Dogs frightened the daylights out of the Peoria Javelinas with a 10-2 victory on Hallowe’en. The offense was led by Dodgers’ catcher Chris O’Brien who went two for five, hitting a grand slam home run. Travis Mattair had three hits for Glendale including a double and two RBI while Yorman Rodriguez, Colin Moran and Brandon Jacobs each also had two hits. Jamie Walczak got the start and went three scoreless innings while Kevin Vance pitched a pair of shutout innings. The only runs came off of A.J. Achter who gave up two runs via a home run by Cory Spangenberg in the eighth inning.

Spangenberg supplied almost the entire offense for Peoria, going three for three with the home run. The pitching did not hold up either as Kyle Hunter started and gave up four runs (three earned) in three innings and Mike Nesseth surrendered five more in just two innings of work. Alex Sogard pitched a scoreless inning and struck out two for the Javelinas.
