The Surprise Saguaros jumped on the Peoria Javelinas with four runs in the first inning and never looked back, hammering Peoria 14-5. Loading up with 20 hits, including at least one from every starter, the Saguaros made mincemeat out of their opponents. With four hits, Boston prospect Travis Shaw went four for five with a double, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI while Mitch Haniger and Jonathan Schoop each had three hits apiece. Haniger had two singles and a double while Schoop was on ase five times with a three-for-three game that included two singles, two walks and a home run. Leading the club in RBI was Ryan Ruan who drove in four while Joe Wendle had a pair of hits including a home run. Miguel Pena started and just gave up three unearned runs on two hits and two walks with five strikeouts in four innings. Jason Gurka had the “deuces wild” line giving up two runs on two hits, two walks and had two strikeouts in two innings of work.

Peoria only managed to get five hits as a club with two from Royals prospect Jorge Bonifacio who also threw out Wendle at home plate to save another run. Delino DeShields drove in a pair of runs, going one for three with a single and a walk. Kyle Hunter got blasted, giving up four runs in just two-thirds of an inning. No one was really much better and so with every pitcher giving up at least one run.
