Iglesias drives in five in Solar Sox win

11/7 Cup of Coffee: Mesa extended its winning streak to three games on Friday with an 11-1 thrashing of the Surprise Rafters.

The Solar Sox scored early and often in this contest. In the second inning, they scored four runs, with one of those crossing the plate on a Jose Iglesias ground out to second. Mesa added three more in the third on a three-run home run by Iglesias, his second of the fall season. Twins prospect Steve Hirschfeld allowed 1 hit and struck out 2 over 3.0 shutout innings for the win. In the fourth, the Solar Sox added another three runs. With the bases loaded, Matt Dominguez (FLA) doubled in two runs. Iglesias then grounded out to first, scoring Hank Conger (LAA) from third, for the Cuban shortstop's fifth RBI of the game.

Mesa scored its final run in the sixth, when Conger led off the inning with a double, moved to third on a PJ Phillips (LAA) single, and scored on a Dominguez sacrifice fly. Richie Lentz entered the game in the eighth and pitched a scoreless inning, despite giving up base hits to the first two Rafter hitters he faced. He retired the next three hitters on a strikeout, a pop fly to the catcher and another strikeout.

The Rafters scored their only run of the game in the bottom of the ninth on a home run by Royals prospect Mike Moustakas.

Regular action takes a break today, as the Arizona Fall League holds its Rising Star Showcase, with the Eastern Division taking on the West at 8:15 pm EST. Dustin Richardson is the only Sox prospect taking part in the contest.

Player of the Night: Jose Iglesias, who went 1 for 5 with a home run and 5 RBI.
