Inefficient offense, defense down Mesa
Mesa managed just four hits in an 8-3 loss to Scottsdale Thursday afternoon, extending their losing streak to four games. To make matters worse, the Solar Sox committed three errors, two by Cubs shortstop Javier Baez, adding to his defensive struggles this fall.
The bats didn’t show up either on Thursday. Baez finished 0-for-4 with a run scored on an error. Rubi Silva was hitless in three at-bats.
No Cubs prospects pitched for the Solar Sox.
Today, Mesa travels to Phoenix to take on the Desert Dogs. First pitch is scheduled for 12:35 local time.
