Paul DeJong (Brian Walton/The Cardinal Nation)

Tuesday’s St. Louis Cardinals prospect highlights from the Arizona Fall League and a look ahead to Wednesday’s action.

In Tuesday’s 4-0 loss, Paul DeJong extending his hitting streak to five games was the biggest news from the three Cardinals in action.

Results from the game played Tuesday, October 25th.

Surprise 4 at Glendale 0

Less than a day after they plated 12 runs on 18 hits, Glendale (4-9) mustered just four hits in their Tuesday afternoon 4-0 loss to Surprise (6-6).

Paul DeJong was one of the four Desert Dogs generating a hit. The shortstop singled once in four at bats, extending his modest hitting streak to five games.  DeJong hit in the seven hole.

The only other St. Louis position player to get into the game was catcher Carson Kelly who was hitless in four at bats.  Kelly batted fifth and defensively was charged with his first passed ball.

Houston prospect right-hander Francis Martes was charged with the loss, his first decision in three starts.  Martes gave up five hits, including a two-run bomb, resulting in three runs in all over four innings.  He issued three free passes.

Righty Reed Garrett (W, 1-0) held Glendale to one measly hit plus a walk in four frames.  Like Martes, he fanned three.  It was the Virginia Military Institute alum’s second straight start after two relief appearances.

Rowan Wick was the Cardinals’ sole representative on the mound Tuesday.  Wick tossed a scoreless eighth to hold the score at 3-0.  The British Columbia native yielded two singles but sandwiched them around two fly outs to left.  He finished the inning by catching the Saguaros’ clean-up hitter looking at strike three.

Wednesday’s game:  at Salt River (8-4), 12:35 pm MST, Nolan Sanburn (0-0, 2.84) (CWS)
