Arizona Fall League Update

A brief update on the Mesa Solar Sox as I recover from last nights debacle at the Bank. Mesa had a win and a loss since the last update, with Quintin Berry leading the offense in the win. Berry was 3-10 in the last 2 games with 3 runs, a double, a homer, 4 RBI’s and his 4th stolen base. He is now hitting at .333. Tuffy Goosewich replaced Lou Marson on the Fall League roster as Marson has been working in the bullpen with the Phillies. Goosewich saw his first action Saturday and went 1-2, with a strikeout. A difficult couple of games for Jeremy Slayden who was 0-9 with 5 strikeouts and an error, as he played left field on Saturday and was the designated hitter on Monday. Jason Donald saw action at second base on Monday, going 1-4 with a run scored.

Pat Overholt had a very rough outing on Monday, struggling with his control going 1.2 innings, giving up 4 runs(2 earned) on 2 hits. He also walked two and threw only 18 of his 39 pitches for strikes. Sergio Escalona had a bit more success, going 2 innings, yielding one run on 2 hits. He walked 1 and struck out 2.
