Kyle Parker and Dustin Garneau were both solid for Salt River on Wednesday, but another Rockies farmhand wound up being partially responsible for the Rafters' loss.

Colorado Rockies farmhands Cristhian Adames, Kyle Parker and Dustin Garneau combined for four hits in Arizona Fall League action on Wednesday, but fellow Rockies minor leaguer Cole White surrendered a two-run homer in the sixth inning that wound up costing the Salt River Rafters the game.

Parker tripled, singled and scored a pair of runs and Garneau launched his first home run of the AFL season, a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning. Garneau also reached via a walk. Adames singled in five at-bats from the top of the Rafters' order.

White came on in relief and failed to get out of the sixth inning. He surrendered three runs -- two earned -- and gave up the home run to Los Angeles Dodgers minor league catcher Pratt Maynard. The long ball gave Glendale a 7-4 lead. The Desert Dogs tacked on one more in the sixth, but it was Maynard's shot off of White that proved to provide the winning runs in their 8-6 victory.

The Rafters, who sit at 2-5 in AFL play, are back on the field against the Desert Dogs on Thursday at 7:35 p.m. MT.
