Despite getting seven RBI from Jon Gaston and Jose Vallejo, the Saguaros lost to Phoenix 12-11 in a thrilla, leaving the tying run on 3rd in the bottom of the 9th.
Vallejo: 4x5, 4 RBI (3-run HR), CS
Gaston: 1x5, 3 RBI (3-run HR), 2K
Danny Meszaros got in the game in the 7th and threw 1IP, 0H/0ER, 1K:1BB, throwing six of his 15 pitches for strikes.
That's a good way to impress the new manager, who was in attendance.
"I would love to repeat what I did last year, but last year is in the past, you can't dwell on it. I would love to have another breakout like last year. Why not me, that's what I say."
And on Vallejo's performance:
"It was phenomenal. It was awesome for him. It's really cool to do it in front of your new manager."
