Glendale Desert Dogs 9, Peoria Javelinas 5

Luis Basabe (leadoff, CF): 1-for-2, 2 R, 3 BB, SB (3), 8-2-4 assist to second base (.214)

Luis Robert (cleanup, DH): 2-for-4, 2 RBIs (.356)

What a day for Chicago White Sox hitters!

Basabe, who has been scuffling in limited AFL time, bagged a hit and three walks, singling in the first, lining out in the second, and walking in the fourth, sixth (and stealing second) and eighth.

Robert lined out in the first, popped out in the third, drove in fellow farmhand Basabe with a single in the fourth and singled again to drive in a run in the sixth.

No other White Sox saw action in the game, which Glendale had under control from a four-run fourth inning on.

Just can’t get enough Robert? Thanks, Baseball America!
