Solar Sox Crushed; Cubs Quieted


As good as Tuesday night was, Wednesday was equally as bad.  The Solar Sox were crushed by the Salt River Rafters 11-3, and it was really all over by the fourth inning when the Rafters built a 7-1 lead.  Javier Baez had a rough night, to say the least, he finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts at the plate and also committed two errors.  Matt Szczur led off once again for the Solar Sox and went 1-for-4 while registering his first stolen base of Fall League play.  Rubi Silva got his first start of the season in left field and went 1-for-5 at the plate.  The only Cubs pitcher not to make an appearance opening night was Nick Struck, he was able to get into this one.  Struck might have been a little too amped up for his AFL debut as he walked three over his 1.1 innings of work.  Struck struck out one, and did not allow a run despite his command issues.  The Solar Sox will look for their first win of the AFL season this afternoon at 1:35 PM CST against Surprise, it’s not a surprise, that’s just the team name.

Thanks for reading,
