Javelinas Lose, Eliminated From AFL Title Game
Despite a six-run ninth inning rally, the Peoria Javelinas lost 10-8 to the Surprise Rafters in the AFL Saturday. Rhyne Hughes was 2-5 (double, homer) with a run scored, an RBI and 3 strikeouts. Desmond Jennings went 2-4 (singles), scored a run, drove in a run and struck out twice. The Javelinas (14-20) play the Mesa Solar Sox (23-11) Monday at 2:35 eastern. Saturday's loss ends the Javelinas hopes of playing in the AFL championship game on Saturday November 22nd between the winners of the AFL American and National Divisions. The Phoenix Desert Dogs have now clinched the National Division title, leading the Javelinas by five games with four games remaining.
