ARIZONA FALL LEAGUEMesa Solar Sox Cubs
Matt Rizzotti cut through much of the regular season with machine-like efficiency before an injury curtailed his performance in the waning days at Lehigh Valley. Though he had an injury setback while playing for Mesa this fall, he has remained consistent with Thursdays effort providing yet another example.
The Solar Sox dropped a 6-4 decision to the Peoria Javelinas yet Rizzotti collected two more hits. Hes hitting .370 through games, hitting safely in six of those contests. He drew a walk in the one game he didnt get a hit and has seven despite missing more than a week with a pulled muscle in his left hip.
Chicago Cubs prospect Josh Vitters went 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored.
