It was a tough day for right-hander Austin Voth, who allowed seven runs in three innings on six hits with three walks and four strikeouts. He gave up one solo shot.

His club bounced back from a 7-1 deficit to take an 8-7 lead in the top of the sixth. But the Saguaros rallied with one in the sixth and two in the seventh to win it.

Left-hander Nick Lee pitched a scoreless ninth for the D-Dogs. He has yet to allow an earned run in AFL play.
