AFL Recap 10/24: Three More Hits for Grossman

The Mesa Solar Sox lost 8-3 today to Surprise.  In what is becoming a regular theme, Robbie Grossman had a big day, going 3-for-4 with a walk and an RBI.  It was Grossman’s eighth multi-hit game in his last ten games, and took his line to a .406 average and a 1.161 OPS in 69 at-bats on the season.  Jarek Cunningha also got a start, but went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts, and a sacrifice fly RBI.

Nathan Baker took the mound for Mesa in the fifth inning.  Baker gave up two runs on three hits in an inning of work, with no walks and one strikeout.  The left hander was saddled with the loss.  Michael Colla came on after Baker, throwing 1.2 shutout innings, allowing no hits, one walk, and striking out two.

Mesa plays Surprise tomorrow at 3:35 PM EST.
