The Salt River Rafters are coming off of a stretch that is not impressive in the win column as they won one and lost two. However, in Monday and Tuesday losses they were more than impressive from a run production standpoint as they combined to score 18 runs. Unfortunately though, over those two games they allowed 22 total runs with 13 hits against in each.

Over the past three games, McCabe is 4-15 with four runs scored and another one batted in. He struck out twice on Monday and then an additional three times in Wednesday’s performances with last night’s game. It is a bit surprising to see McCabe struggle with strikeout as he’s a player who’s displayed fantastic bat control, but it’s likely just a blip on the radar.

McSteens only appearance this week came in a two inning shutout last night. He struck out two batters and was extremely efficient as he took just 17 pitches to record six outs.
