Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

Adames and Garneau sport impressive AFL batting lines after each player had a big weekend for the Salt River Rafters.

Rockies minor leaguers Cristhian Adames and Dustin Garneau combined for three home runs and 10 runs batted in in the Salt River Rafters' 20-0 win over the Peoria Javelinas on Saturday.

Adames led all players with four hits, including a double and a home run, while also drawing a walk and scoring four times. Garneau hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning and walloped a grand slam three innings later to finish the day with a pair of homers and six RBI. Garneau increased his AFL line to .231/.375/.654 in 32 plate apperances.

Cole White was the lone Rockies farmhand to appear on the mound in the blowout. He struck out two and walked one in a hitless ninth inning.

Adames had a strong performance on Thursday as well, smacking a pair of singles and driving in a run in the Rafters' 10-9 win. Adames is hitting .333/.371/.545 in 35 AFL plate apperances. Tim Wheeler doubled, drove in a pair of runs and scored in that game, as well. Rockies relief prospects Kraig Sitton and Tyler Matzek struggled in the Thursday game, combining to allow a pair of runs on four hits and three walks. Sitton's ERA sits at 11.81, while Matzek sports a 9.00 ERA.

Kyle Parker only appeared in one game during the weekend slate, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Salt River's win on Friday.
