THIS WEEK IN BEAR BASEBALL

August 25, 2015

The last week of the Arizona Rookie League is here and the AZL D-backs (25-30, 7-8) chances of making the play-offs look grim as they currently trail the AZL Giants (31-25, 10-5) and the AZL Cubs (30-22, 8-5) by 2 ½ games.

The D-backs started the week off with a loss against the AZL Athletics (24-31) by a score of 3-2. The D-backs tied the game in the eighth inning but gave up the losing run in the bottom of the 11th inning. Will Lowman (PCHS 2012) came in and pitched the fifth inning giving up a hit, a walk and two strike outs and did not allow a run to score in his frame.

Play-off hopes died on Wednesday as the D-backs dropped its second straight game losing to the AZL Angels (23-29) by a score of 3-1. Thursday’s game against the AZL Cubs was cancelled due to rain with no decision as of yet whether it will be made up or not. The D-backs lost its third straight game to the AZL Royals (39-16) on Friday by a score of 12-5 for the season finale.

Will finished the Rookie season with a combined ERA of 10.66 giving up 17 runs (15 earned) on 15 hits over 12.2 innings. Will walked 20 batters while striking out 9. Will started his minor league career this season with the Pioneer Rookie Leagues' Missoula Osprey in Montana before being transferred to the AZL D-backs of the Arizona Rookie League.

Lowman will now report to the Instructional League on September 18th for about a month before having the winter off and reporting for spring training in 2016.

As always, Go Bears!
