Solar Sox drubbed by Desert Dogs 11-1

The Mesa Solar Sox were quieted by a 15-hit attack and superb pitching from the Phoenix Desert Dogs, falling 11-1 on Monday afternoon.

Mesa would jump out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, as Bryan Peterson (FLA) reached on an error and scored on Chris Parmelee's (MIN) RBI single. Phoenix would answer back in the top of the third off of Mesa starter Randor Bierd. Darin Mastroianni (TOR) led off the inning with a single and scored on Danny Espinosa's (WAS) RBI triple, knotting the score at 1-1. The Desert Dogs then turned the game into a blowout in the top of the fourth as Bierd got two quick outs, but would not make it out of the inning. Adam Loewen (TOR) and Mastroianni hit consecutive singles, Matt Angle (BAL) walked and Espinoza drove in two with an RBI single. Corey Brown (OAK) continued the hit parade with a 2-RBI double, Grant Desme (OAK) walked, and Josh Bell (BAL) hit a line-drive three-run home run to cap the scoring. The seven-run inning put the Desert Dogs up 8-1.

Bierd ended up going 3.2 innings and picking up the loss, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits, walking 2 and striking out 4. Phoenix added three more runs in the top of the fifth on RBI singles by Loewen and Angle and a sacrifice fly by Espinoza.

Casey Kelly played third base and went 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts, while Ryan Kalish went 1 for 4 with a double, Luis Exposito went 2 for 3 with a double, and Jose Iglesias went 0 for 4. The Solar Sox look to bounce back this afternoon as they face the Surprise Rafters at 2:35 EST.
