Javelinas come from behind to edge Mesa 3-2


10/30 Cup of Coffee: The Javelinas scored twice in the eighth inning to earn a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Solar Sox on Thursday afternoon.

Mesa took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, when Starlin Castro (CHC) scored on a Chris Parmelee (MIN) sacrifice fly. The Solar Sox extended their lead to 2-0 in the third, when PJ Phillips (LAA) scored on a sacrifice fly by Minnesota prospect Rene Tosoni.

With two outs in the fifth and a runner on first, Richie Lentz replaced starter Andrew Miller (FLA) after he had given up the Javelinas' first run of the game. Lentz struck out Seattle prospect Carlos Triunfel to end the inning. He followed that up by pitching a clean sixth, adding one more strikeout to his total.

With his team trailing 2-1 going into the eighth, Peoria's Brent Morel (CHW) led off the inning with a single. With one out, Triunfel walked and both runners then advanced on a John Gaub (CHC) wild pitch. Milwaukee prospect Lorenzo Cain singled, scoring both runners to complete the Javelinas' comeback. Dustin Richardson pitched a scoreless top of the ninth, allowing a single and a walk and striking out one before the Solar Sox went quietly in the bottom of the ninth, with Luis Exposito grounding to third for the final out of the game.

Exposito went 0 for 4 in the game and Jose Iglesias went 0 for 3 and struck out once. Mesa plays Scottsdale tonight at 8:35 EST.
