The Mesa Solar Sox lost 4-3 to the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Robbie Grossman started in right field and batted leadoff.  Grossman went 2-for-5 with an RBI.  His hits came in his first two at-bats of the game.  Grossman has played in all six Mesa games, and has a hit in five of those six games, with a .333 average in 27 at-bats.

Jarek Cunningham started at second base, going 0-for-2 with a walk, and an RBI on a sacrifice fly.  Cunningham only has two hits on the season in 17 at-bats, but has played in five of the six games for Mesa.

    When is Cole making his afl debut?

      I read an article that said Cole was only scheduled to be in the instructional league for two weeks.  Assuming there’s any truth to that, he should be leaving for Arizona soon.

        Cole was expected to make a few more starts in instructs after his first start. He’s probably made two starts by now since I heard this. Not sure on the exact date that he’ll go to the AFL.
