Enhanced AFL Box Score: Mesa Solar Sox 5, Salt River Rafters 6 – October 9, 2012

Enhanced Box Scores

Consider this a special edition of the EBS, which probably will not be a regular thing throughout the Arizona Fall League season (or the MLB playoffs, should an idea strike my fancy).


The AFL kicked off yesterday with the Cubs-including Mesa Solar Sox dropping one to the Salt River Rafters. More importantly, five of the Cubs’ AFL players saw action, and all had success. Matt Szczur led off for the Solar Sox and drew a couple walks, Rubi Silva got a pinch hit, Kevin Rhoderick struck out three and gave up just one hit in 1.2 scoreless relief innings, and Tony Zych struck out the only batter he faced (on three pitches).

And then there was Javier Baez. Well, I guess it’s true
