Results from game played Wednesday, October 8th.

Surprise 8 at Peoria 2

Javelinas hurlers were scored upon in each of the first four frames as Peoria was downed by Surprise 8-2.

Starter Jaime Shultz (TB) (L, 0-1) gave up five runs on four hits, a hit batsman, balk and two wild pitches in just two innings. Southpaw Sam Selman (KC) walked two along with two hits in the third, resulting in one tally.

The Cardinals’ Mitch Harris allowed a line-drive home run over the left field wall with two out in the fourth. The only other base runner against Harris reached on a one-out grounder up the middle that glanced off the glove of Peoria’s shortstop during the next frame. The Navy vet recorded two swinging strikeouts, three groundball outs and one line out on 29 pitches, 18 for strikes. Four more hurlers followed Harris to the bump, each tossing one inning.

St. Louis was well represented in the starting lineup by Cody Stanley, Jacob Wilson and Breyvic Valera. Catcher Stanley, the clean-up hitter, singled once in four at bats and was charged with a passed ball. Wilson, who played first and hit right behind Stanley, went 1-for-4 with a double. Third baseman Valera, a taxi squad player eligible to play on Wednesdays and Saturdays, singled once in three at bats with a stolen base, batting ninth.
