Results from the Arizona Fall League game played Monday, November 14th.
A pretty crappy Glendale (14-15) team pitching effort resulted in a 13-5 loss to Mesa (15-14) on Monday afternoon.
Four of the Desert Dogs’ hurlers surrendered at least one tally, beginning with starter Chris Anderson (L, 1-4) (LAD). Anderson gave up five runs, two earned, on five hits (including a home run) and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings. White Sox lefty Louie Lechich retired all four batters faced, limiting the damage by stranding Anderson’s last two runners.
Right-hander Jacob Dorris (HOU) allowed a three-run bomb during his inning of work but Corey Littrell outdid him. Littrell served up as many long balls as he recorded outs (two), resulting in three of the four runs charged to him on two hits and two walks. Brian Clark, another White Sox southpaw, was tagged for a run on four hits in 1 1/3 before Dodgers’ righty Corey Copping tossed a one-two-three ninth.
Meanwhile, Glendale’s bats banged out 10 hits and scored five runs, paced by centerfielder Andrew Stevenson (WSH), who went 3-for-4 with a triple, walk and two runs scored. The only other Desert Dog with a multi-hit effort was catcher Carson Kelly who singled twice in five at bats out of the three hole. Kelly swiped a bag, his second of the fall campaign.
Harrison Bader and Paul DeJong were among five players with one hit each. Bader, the number five batter, went 1-for-3 with two walks and a K.
DeJong’s only hit in four at bats was an RBI single, which knocked in Glendale’s first tally. DeJong manned short and hit in the eighth position.
Tuesday’s game: at Surprise (16-12), 12:35 pm MST, Austin Voth (2-2, 6.20) (WSH)
