Sammy Solis won his third straight start as Mesa snapped a two-game skid with a
9-6 win over Surprise.
Solis allowed one run on six hits over five innings, giving up a walk and striking out four. He threw 73 pitches, 47 for strikes.
Brian Goodwin also appeared in the game, but went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts. He batted second and played center field but had no putouts or assists.
With the win, the Solar Sox improve to 8-2-1 in the AFL East and lead the second-place Scorpions by 3½ games. They rematch against the Saguaros in Peoria this afternoon.
