On Thursday something happened in the Arizona Fall League for the first time this season, New York Yankees prospect Gary Sanchez was held hit-less in 4 at bats before the Surprise Saguaros. While he might not have gotten a base hit he still did reach base, working a walk in the first inning.
Sanchez, 22, has been tearing up the Arizona Fall League, leading the league with 17 base hits, 5 home runs, and 15 RBIs. He has reached base in all 10 games so far and has a .386 batting average.
Also getting into the game for the Saguaros was Yankees lefty-pitching prospect Tyler Webb. Webb has continued to bounce back from a shaky first game throwing 1 1/3 innings of shutout baseball, making this the fourth game in a row he has not allowed a run and in that stretch he allowed just 1 hit over 4 innings of work.
Webb came into the game with 2-outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and on the second pitch he threw he got Eric Aguilera to line out to left field. Then in the bottom of the eighth he got Daniel Robertson to fly out, Mark Zagunis to ground out and Jake Bauers to fly out on 12 pitches. In total he threw 14 pitches with 9 of them being strikes.
