Desert Dogs get dogged again

This time it’s a walk-off ... and almost no Sox see action

Sluggish start: Gavin Sheets and the rest of Glendale’s AFL outfit have started out stone-cold.

Well, this is going to be a quick and dirty one, because the game was pretty awful for the Desert Dogs, and the White Sox were pretty awful in it.

Scottsdale Scorpions 3, Glendale Desert Dogs 2

Gavin Sheets (1B) 0-for-4, 2 K (.000 BA)

Yikes! The bad news is that Philadelphia Phillies second base prospect Nick Maton led off the ninth inning with a walk-off home run to send Glendale to its third straight loss. The good? Almost no White Sox soiled the box score.

Gavin Sheets was not so lucky, however, striking out twice and remaining hitless on the season. But all it takes is for him to make a little contact to send the ball flying in the Arizona air, so here’s hoping he gets hot soon, and not make this AFL stint an ugly mark on an otherwise fabulous season.

Scottsdale is undefeated at 3-0, and they come to Camelback Ranch tomorrow to face winless Glendale (0-3) to complete the home-and-home. Godspeed, Desert Dogs.
