AFL Recap: Nick Gonzales Reaches Base Twice in Peoria Loss

Gonzales started the game with a single on a line drive to center field. He walked in the third inning, then scored one pitch later on a home run. He grounded out to shortstop to end the top of the fourth. Peoria went down in order in the final three innings, as Gonzales flew out to center field in the seventh to end the game with a 6-3 loss. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. He’s now hitting .380 with a 1.032 OPS.
