Kalish scores twice in Mesa loss

11/14 Cup of Coffee: With less than a week remaining in the schedule, Phoenix extended its lead over Mesa to 3.5 games with a 9-7 come-from-behind win on Friday. The team committed three errors, which allowed three unearned runs to score in the game.

The Solar Sox struck first, when Marlins prospect Bryan Peterson led off the game with a triple and scored on a Rene Tosoni (MIN) single. The Desert Dogs answered back with three runs in their half of the first. After giving up two walks and an infield single to load the bases, Mesa starter Andrew Miller (FLA) watched one run score on a passed ball, allowed another on a Josh Bell (LAD) single, and third on Nevin Ashley's (TB) ground out.

In the second, the Solar Sox tied the score, scoring twice on singles by Ryan Kalish, Steve Singleton (MIN), Casey Kelly, and Peterson. Phoenix answered with a single run in its half of the inning to regain the lead. In the third, Mesa scored its final four runs of the game. After singles by Chris Parmelee (MIN) and Kalish, Singleton hit a three-run homer. With two out, Peterson tripled for the second time in the game and scored on a Jose Iglesias single. The Desert Dogs scored once in the bottom of the inning, when Bell reached base on a Kelly error and scored on a Brad Emaus (TOR) double.

Phoenix tied the score in the fourth on a two-run home run by Oakland prospect Brad Desme. The game remained tied until the bottom of the eighth. Chris Province, who had retired the Desert Dogs in order in the seventh, gave up a single to Darin Mastroianni (TOR) followed by a home run to Jemile Weeks (OAK). Reliever Eddie Gamboa (BAL) retired the Solar Sox in order in the ninth to record the save.
