ARIZONA FALL LEAGUEMesa Solar Sox Cubs
Jake Muyco had performed adequately in each of his first two AFL performances prior to his outing for Mesa on Monday. The right-hander, who had been solid while coming out of the bullpen for Tennessee and Iowa during the regular season, got the start for Solar Sox and put forth a forgettable effort in an 8-6 loss at Phoenix.
Muyco allowed seven runs on six hits over 2 23 innings. He walked one and allowed a pair of homers. Muyco didnt allow more than four runs in any of his 54 regular-season outings.
Fellow Chicago farmhands Brett Jackson and Ryan Flaherty did their best to get Muyco off the hook. Jackson, making his second AFL appearance, had a hit, a walk, drove in a pair of runs and scored once while Flaherty had a hit and an RBI in four at-bats to extended his hitting streak to four games. Josh Vitters went 0-for-2.
Peoria Saguaros White Sox
Anthony Carter continued to shine for the Sags in their 5-4 victory over Scottsdale. Carter, who had 22 saves at Birmingham during the regular season, picked up his second save for Peoria after throwing a scoreless inning.
Carter has yet to allow a hit or a walk in his four outings four innings, striking out eight over that stretch.
Eduardo Escobar and Jared Mitchell each went 0-for-4.
