Kris Bryant, DH – Batting third for Mesa, Bryant got off to a fast start, ripping a one-out double to left that advanced Taylor Lindsey (Angels) to third in the top of the first inning. Both runners were left stranded. That was Bryant’s only hit of the day. He finished 1-for-5.
Wes Darvill, RF – Darvill opened up the scoring in the top of the sixth, driving in Steven Souza Jr. (Nationals) from third. Almora was brought in as a defensive replacement for Darvill in the bottom of the ninth. Darvill finished 1-for-4.
Cubs prospect Dallas Beeler is scheduled to make his third start of the fall on Thursday. The right-hander will go up against Scottsdale’s Phil Irwin (Pirates). Beeler is 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA over six AFL innings. Jorge Soler is expected to bat sixth and play right field for the Sox. First pitch is scheduled for 2:35 CST.
