The Solar Sox remain unbeaten, taking their third straight with a 7-3 decision over the Sagauros in Surprise.
Just two Nationals saw game action: outfielder Steve Souza Jr. and reliever Richie Mirowski.
With no Saturday game this week, taxi-squad player Souza made the most of his playing time on Friday night. He reached base four times (single, double, two walks), scored once, drove in three, and stole three (that’s five in two games). The 24-y.o. batted sixth and played centerfield, but had no defensive chances.
Mirowski made his first AFL appearance in the seventh. He pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the 7th for the hold and struck out one, throwing 13 pitches (seven for strikes).
Mesa (3-0-1) returns to action on Monday night with a visit to Scottsdale (1-3).
