Solar Sox Score 28 Runs Against Rafters

October 20, 2008 by  

You read it right. We could hardly believe it ourselves as the Mesa Solar Sox surprise the Rafters in Mesa. Mondays are known for being bad but, this was an especially bad day for the visiting Surprise Rafters as they are beat badly by the Mesa Solar Sox. The Rafters scored first in the second inning which was answered by two runs of Mesa’s own. It was all downhill from there.

The Sox performed an offensive attack which resulted in 28 runs for the team and 8 errors for Surprise. Leading the offensive attack was Phillies upcoming star Jason Donald (U of A) with seven at bats, scoring 4 runs with one double and a home run. Right fielder Scott Cousins of the Florida Marlins also contributed with 5 RBIs of his own as he hit one home run. Jesse Estrada of the Chicago Cubs earned the win as he pitched four innings, allowing two hits and one earned run.

The offensive onslaught began in the bottom of the third inning and did not show any signs of letting up. The sox followed with three runs in the fourth and another seven runs in the fifth before scoring eight more in the remainder of the game. Jason Donald performed in the All-Star Futures game this season and had assured his spot in the Future Stars game for this weekend.
