Arizona Fall League Update

Mesa continued its winning streak with three more wins Tuesday thru Thursday and now have a 10-5 record in the Fall League.  Tuesdays game was uneventful for Phils prospects as only Jason DOnald made a late inning appearance at thrid base and went without an at bat.  On Wednesday, Mesa won 11-3, behind a strong performance by Quintin Berry who was 3-5, with 2 runs, an RBI and a stolen base (3). Berry started in CF.  Jason Donald was the designated hitter and had a huge game, going 4-6 with a run and a double, lifting his batting average to .452.  Pat Overholt pitched two scoreless innings in relief, walking one and striking out two without yielding a hit.  His ERA now stands at an excellent 1.29, after a difficult second half of the season with Reading.  Sergio Escalona followed Overholt on Wednesday but yielded 2 runs, one earned in his inning of work.

In the 8-6 on THursday, Andrew Carpenter, got the start going 4 innings, giving up only a run on 3 hits.  He walked 2 and struck out 2, lowering his ERA to 7.00.  The difficulties of Tyson Brummett continued as he gave up a run in his lone inning.  Offensively, Jeremy Slayden went 1-4 with an RBI, leaving his average at .308, but a baserunning blunder was costly as he was picked off. Quintin Berry had a another big game, starting in CF, going 3-4 with 3 runs and 2 doubles, leaving his average at .346.
