16-16, 2.0 GB
The Rafters finished with a .500 mark, two games behind the division-winning Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League's West Division.
Guasave reserve catcher Jose Felix grounded into a double play in his only plate appearance, dropping his average down to .125 this winter.
Middle infielder Renny Osuna (.358/.415/.434) had two more singles in four at-bats on Friday.
Max Ramirez (0/4, BB) and David Paisano (0/1) both went hitless again. Paisano initially entered the game as a pinch runner before moving out to left field.
Elvis Andrus went without a hit in four plate appearances. He stole his second base of the season.
Esteban German remained in his slump on Friday, as he went hitless in three official at-bats, dipping his average to .234. The left field did draw a pair of walks.
Pitching for the second time in three days, right-hander Alexi Ogando worked another scoreless inning. He walked one and struck out one.
In eight appearances [nine innings] this winter, Ogando has surrendered just three runs on nine hits, walking two and fanning six. Although the 6-foot-4, 185-pound hurler doesn't have any pitching experience outside of the Dominican Summer League, he is proving he can perform against decent competition.
Joaquin Arias was 0-for-3 with a walk at the top of the Escogido lineup.
No Rangers appeared on Friday.
