ARIZONA FALL LEAGUEPeoria Saguaros White Sox
The Arizona Fall League is an experience that most players look back on fondly. Johnnie Lowe, however, likely wants to bury his time with Peoria deep in the recesses of his mind.
The right-hander who enjoyed such a fine season out of the bullpen at Birmingham has been starting for Sags with his latest effort coming Monday in a 6-5 loss at Surprise. Though he didnt factor in the decision, Lowe got roughed up yet again, allowing five runs on eight hits in 3 13 innings.
Lowes ERA is 15.15 in 13 23 innings as a starter. Hes allowed 27 runs 23 earned. Hes allowed five homers and the opposition is hitting .356 against him. Henry Mabee also pitched, throwing a scoreless inning, marking the third consecutive outing and fourth time in five outings that he has not yielded a run.
Jared Mitchell and Eduardo Escobar combined to go 0-for-6.
Mesa Solar Sox Cubs
Ryan Flaherty snapped a two-game hitless streak Monday night in Mesas 8-3 loss to Scottsdale.
Flaherty was 1-for-3 after going 0-for-8 in his previous two games. Hes hitting .317 with just over a week remaining in the AFL regular season. David Cales pitched 1 13 scoreless innings, extending his streak to 6 23 innings without giving up a run.
