Braddock, Lucroy contribute in AFL title game
Left-hander Zach Braddock struck out the side in a scoreless third inning and catcher Jonathan Lucroy sparked the winning rally with a single in the eighth as the Peoria Javelinas captured the Arizona Fall League Championship with a win over the Phoenix Desert Dogs on Saturday. Phoenix had won the league title in each of the past five years.
Braddock and Lucroy were the only Brewers prospects to appear in the game. With Peoria trailing in the eighth, 4-3, Lucroy lined a one-out single to left field before White Sox prospect C.J. Retherford lifted a go-ahead, two-run homer.
