The relatively quiet start to the Arizona Fall League for Pedro Pages picked up some steam during a Friday afternoon game between Salt River and Surprise. Pages, who started at catcher and was one of three Cardinals prospects in Salt River’s starting lineup, went two-for-three with a double, an RBI, and a walk before.
Pages RBI single in the top of the eighth inning scored fellow Cardinals prospect Jordan Walker to bring Salt River within two runs of Surprise and spelled the end of Pages’ day as he was replaced by another Cardinals prospect in Mike Antico, who came in to pinch run.
With his multi-hit game, Pages improved his average to .225 and OPS to .673 over 40 at-bats. His RBI was the seventh he’s driven in in 12 games.
A day after producing a multi-hit game and starting in right field, Walker shifted to center and went zero-for-two with a run scored and two walks. Walker, who was one of four Cardinals prospects selected to play in the AFL Fall Stars game, popped up with runners on first and second base during his first at-bat. He drew walks in the third and eighth inning. On defense, Walker did not commit an error and hauled in the three fly balls him to in center.
