Friday's action saw Mather remaining in the DH spot. Mather had another nice game with two hits, a walk, and a run scored. Mark Hamilton went hitless in four at bats including a strikeout. Kyle McClellan pitched two-thirds of an inning, and was charged with a blown save. McClellan gave up a hit that allowed Chris Petit, who had been walked by Jason Motte, to score. Motte pitched an inning and a third, walking one and allowing one hit.
In 1.2 innings, McClellan has yet to give up a run. Motte's ERA is now 3.86 in 2.1 innings of work.
Mather is currently hitting .278 with an RBI, a run scored, and a stolen base. It is still early but Mather does not have an extra base hit in 18 at bats. Jarrett Hoffpauir is 3-for-6 in the early going. Mark Hamilton is 0-for-5.
Sunday is an off day for the Arizona Fall League with action resuming on Monday.
