Kalish shines once again in shootout loss


10/21 Cup of Coffee: Despite jumping out to an early 6-2 lead and attempting a furious ninth-inning rally, Mesa once again came up short against Peoria, dropping a 14-10 decision Tuesday afternoon.

The scoring started in the first for Mesa when Ryan Kalish doubled home Bryan Peterson (FLA). Kalish would later score from third with the third Solar Sox run when Chris Parmelee (MIN) grounded into a double play. The Red Sox outfielder ended up 3 for 4 in the game with 3 runs scored, 2 RBI and a stolen base.

Holding a 6-3 lead entering the bottom of the fifth, the game got away from Mesa in a hurry. Peoria scored eight times against Twins prospect Steve Hirschfeld and Marlins lefty Jay Voss to take the lead for good, with Andrew Lambo (LAD) doing the brunt of the damage with a two-out grand slam to conclude the scoring in the inning. Kalish would drive in his second run of the game in the top of the seventh to pull Mesa within three, but a two-out, two-run double by Lucas May (LAD) off of Chris Province in the bottom half of the inning would put the game out of reach.

Dustin Richardson also appeared in the game, striking out the side in the eighth but allowing a run on 3 hits, including a solo home run to open the inning by Brewers catching prospect Jonathan Lucroy. Jose Iglesias and Luis Exposito each went 0 for 4, although Iglesias did steal a base.

Player of the Night: Ryan Kalish, who went 3 for 4 with a double, 2 RBI, 3 runs scored and a steal in a losing effort.
