Cherry Creek/AFA Alum Jax Hard-Luck Loser in Salt River's 1-0 Loss

Griffin Jax, a product of Cherry Creek High School and the Air Force Academy, allowed just one run in three innings, but wound up suffering the loss for Salt River. Jax, a third-round draft choice of the Twins in 2016, took advantage of an Air Force policy, allowing an athlete who participates in an Olympic sport to delay his active service.

Baseball has been restored to the schedule of the upcoming Summer Olympics.

Josh Fuentes (.207) went 1-for-4 and played first base for Salt River. Rockies relief prospect Mitch Horacek (5.70) pitched a 1-2-3 ninth, striking out one.
