SURPRISE, Ariz. — In his nine games back in the Arizona Rookie League, Saquan Johnson has found his hitting shoes, hitting in seven of those games and putting together a .333 batting average.

On Thursday, Johnson suffered only his second hitless night at the plate, going 0-for-3 in a 9-1 loss to the Dodgers. Johnson, who worked a walk in the game, was hitting out of the No. 5 hole and playing left field for the Rangers.

After an off night on Friday, the Rangers took on the Cubs on Saturday and came away with a 5-4 win. Johnson, who was hitting out of the No. 6 spot, was 1-for-5 after singling in his fourth at-bat. He also had two groundouts, a flyout and a strikeout.

On Sunday, the 2011 East Bladen High graduate grounded out in his first two at-bats, then ripped a triple in the seventh inning and scored — but the Rangers dropped a 5-4 decision to the Cubs. Johnson, again hitting out of the No. 6 hole, flied out in the eighth inning.

The Arizona Rangers are now 9-5 in the second half of the season after winning the first half with a 17-11 record. They are now 26-16 overall.
