Lawrence Struggles; Salt River Suffers Fourth Consecutive Loss

Rockies bullpen prospect Justin Lawrence (3.38) struck out three batters in one inning of work, but in the midst of the strikes he gave up a game-tying run in the ninth inning of what became Salt River’s 5-4, 10-inning loss to Peoria.

Looking to clinch the Arizona Fall League East and advance to Saturday’s championship game, Salt River instead saw its losing streak extend to four games, two games longer than the previous longest losing streak of the fall.

Lawrence began the ninth by striking out Buddy Reed, but Weston Williams doubled. After Joe DeCarlo struck out. Trent Grisham (.158) tripled home the tying run. After loading the bases, Lawrence struck out Evan White to end the inning.

Salt River scored in the top of the 10th, but Peoria scored twice in the bottom of the inning.
