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.

Luis Basabe just had a beautiful trip to the plate. He was down 0-2, worked into a full count, fought off a pitch, and ended up drawing another walk #WhiteSox— Sean Williams (@TLS_Sean) November 5, 2018
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!
Luis Robert is showing off a tantalizing tool set in Arizona. https://t.co/t1dECFkH5N pic.twitter.com/48T9JxS8DN— Baseball America (@BaseballAmerica) November 5, 2018
