AFL Recap: Canaan Smith-Njigba Reaches Base Four Times in Peoria Win

The Peoria Javelinas took on the first place Glendale Desert Dogs on Monday afternoon. Peoria with their 10-10 record, needed a victory in this game to help make up the 2.5 game difference in the standings with just nine games left on the schedule. Two Pittsburgh Pirates were in the lineup today, with Ji-hwan Bae batting lead-off and playing second base, while Canaan Smith-Njigba batted seventh and played left field. It was quite a surprise to see Smith-Njigba in the lineup since he started a brawl on Saturday, which always results in a suspension. Here’s a recap of today’s action.
