Surprise Rafters 17, Peoria Javelinas 4

At least they got a crowd out here today. I’m told the 344 fans who showed up to Peoria Stadium to witness this 17-4 rout suffered by the hometown Javelinas is one of the better ones in AFL play in quite a while. At least, at this ballpark.
Not much of a game today. Not much to tell you when it comes to Mariners prospects. Joe Dunigan played and went 0-for-4.
But we did get a lot out of our chat with Phillippe Aumont. More on him later.
We now know that Dustin Ackley will be playing center and left field here — not first base as he’d been listed. Interesting first day. It will be more interesting tomorrow, when the bigger Mariners names get on the field. I’m sure their presence on the roster helped fuel some of the attendance we saw today. More than just scouts in the stands.
