The Mesa Solar Sox scored in each of the first four innings as they stopped a two-game slide with a 7-4 win over the Scottsdale Scorpions
Brian Goodwin (pictured) was the sole National to appear in the game. He singled and scored in the 1st inning and drove in a run with a two-out safety in the second, snapping what was then a 2-2 tie. The 22-y.o. batted second and played centerfield, finishing the game at 2-for-5 with one putout on defense.
The win dropped Scottsdale back to 2½ games behind Mesa in the AFL East. The Solar Sox will see how they play in Peoria, visiting the Saguaros this afternoon.
