ARIZONA FALL LEAGUEPeoria Saguaros White Sox
Henry Mabee has sort of pitched like his name over the last few weeks for Peoria. Maybe hell pitch well and maybe he wont. Wednesday marked one of the days he pitched well as the Saguaros squashed Phoenix, 8-0.
Mabee allowed a hit over two scoreless innings, marking the second consecutive outing in which he hasnt allowed a run. In three of his four previous outings, he had allowed 13 runs on 12 hits in 5 13 innings. He pitched to a 3.65 ERA in 49 innings during the regular season at Double-A Birmingham so his effort over the last two outings is more likely indicative of his abilities than what he showed through his first few AFL outings.
Eduardo Escobar had three hits and an RBI for the Sags while Jason Bour had a double, an RBI and scored a run. Escobar is 7-for-10 in his last two games.
Cubs infielder Ryan Flaherty went 0-for-4 in Mesas 11-2 loss to the Peoria Javelinas, snapping his hitting streak at eight games.
