ARIZONA FALL LEAGUEMesa Solar Sox Cubs
Jake Muycos AFL experience came to an unceremonious end Tuesday afternoon in Mesas 7-2 loss at Surprise.
Muyco, who was solid out of the pen at Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa during the regular season, was thrust into a starting role with Mesa and didnt shine in his seven outings. He took the loss Tuesday to finish at 0-3 with a 10.48 ERA in 22 13 innings. He allowed runs in every outing, including the six he surrendered to Surprise. The opposition finished with a .406 batting average against him.
Josh Vitters was 1-for-4, extending his hitting streak to seven games, while Ryan Flaherty scored a run as a pinch-runner.
The AFL regular season ends Thursday.
