Tri-City Teams Take Triumph

October 29, 2008 by  

For those of you that have had the opportunity to enjoy the state of Arizona for a while, you may remember when Phoenix, Mesa and Scottsdale were known as the Tri-City area. That was, of course, before Tempe, Glendale and others had grown so rapidly. Moving from history to baseball; two teams provided some heavy hitting in their timely victories on Tuesday.

The Mesa Solar Sox down the Peoria Saguaros by a score of 10-1 with the help of AFL Rising Stars Casper Wells and Logan Morrison. Both team members had three RBIs a piece that would come in sequential innings that would end up being too much for Peoria to handle. The Sox received some help from their pitching staff as well as Luis Marte goes four innings, giving up the only run but, struck out six.

The Phoenix Desert Dogs put on a little baseball clinic of their own at Phoenix Muni that same evening. As Mike McKenry hit his fifth home run in three games, he took a humble stance to his recent success by reminding the press that good times come and go. The Dogs maintained a slight lead going into the fifth inning before they lit up the box scores. A wild pitch would load the bases in the bottom of the fifth inning before consistent RBI singles were hit by the team. Eric Young would end up putting an exclamation mark in the scorebooks with his inside-the-park grand slam home run.

Later Tuesday evening, the Scottsdale Scorpions would take the lead early in a game that was well played by both teams. Scottsdale scored two runs in the first inning and would score again in the sixth. The Javelinas went scoreless through seven innings nearly staging a comeback in the eighth. The two runs scored, proved not to be enough in their 3-1 defeat
