The Mesa Solar Sox went 2-4 this week, and currently sit 9-8, two games behind the Scottsdale Scorpions. Here is how the Pirates prospects fared this week:
-Andrew Lambo played in five games this week, going 5-for-18 (.278) with two doubles, a walk, and five strikeouts.
-Tony Sanchez had a down week at the plate, going 2-for-12 (.167), although he finished strong with a solo homer on Saturday. Sanchez walked twice, and struck out five times. RumBunter linked to a video of Sanchez in the AFL, which is worth checking out. Bucs Dugout also looks at the video, as well as analyzing Sanchez's defense, and the importance of AFL stats. As for Sanchez looking thin, he lost a lot of weight when his jaw was wired shut, due to the limited food options that were available to him during that time.
-Josh Harrison had the biggest week at the plate, going 10-for-18 (.556), with five doubles and a homer. Harrison recorded a stolen base, drew two walks, and only struck out once.
