10/20 Cup of Coffee: Despite out-hitting Peoria 10-9, Mesa fell to the Javelinas, 8-1 on Monday afternoon.
Randor Bierd got the start and went 3.0 innings while taking the loss. He allowed 2 runs, 1 earned, on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Scott Sizemore (DET) in the first and an RBI double by Sizemore in the third. Sizemore, the offensive hero for the Javelinas, extended the Peoria lead to 5-0 in the fourth with his second double of the game, which knocked in two. The former fifth-round pick had a banner day, going 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and 4 RBI.
Ryan Kalish put Mesa on the board in the bottom of the fourth, knocking in Chris Parmelee (MIN) with an RBI single. Peoria would extend its lead in the top of the eighth on a pinch-hit homer by Jordan Danks (CHW). Garrett Parcell (FLA) came in for Mesa in the ninth, but couldn't stop the Peoria onslaught, allowing a two-out single by Sizemore followed by consecutive walks to Russ Mitchell (LAD) and Danks before Dayan Viciedo (CHW) knocked home the game's final two runs.
Jose Iglesias started at shortstop for Mesa, going 1 for 4. His average now sits at .444 through three games. The Solar Sox will look for revenge today, as the team once again plays the Javelinas, with the first pitch scheduled for 2:35 EST.
Player of the Night: Ryan Kalish, who went 2 for 4 with a double and the Solar Sox' lone RBI.
