Strong effort from RHP Griffin Jax, but Salt River Falters Late

Minnesota pitching prospect Griffin Jax, an alum of Cherry Creek High School and Air Force Academy, pitched five strong innings, lowering his AFL ERA to 3.71. Jax allowed one run on two hits and two walks, striking out five, and had a no-decision.

Rockies prospect Josh Fuentes, filling the role of the DH, raised his average to .310, going 2-for-4. Tyler Nevin (.404) was the only other Rockies prospect to appear in the game, going in as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning.
