Mesa 5 – Salt River 6 – Oct. 9, 2012
Jake Marisnick played centerfield and was 0 for 4 in his Arizona Fall League debut striking out twice swinging, grounding out once, lining out to the pitcher and getting hit by a pitch. Deck McGuire also got in the game and gave up just one walk in 1 1/3 innings to Matt Sczur. He erased him with a groundout to end the 6th and returned to face top prospects NIck Castellanos, Jonathan Singleton, and Jonathan Schoop. He struck out Castellanos looking and Singleton swinging before Schoop lined out sharply to Marisnick in CF to end the 7th. McGuire had a poor 2012 in New Hampshire and was passed over by the Blue Jays in the depths of its injury woes. His trip to the AFL to face some of the best prospects in baseball will turn him around hopefully and this first appearance has him on the right track.
