The Mesa Solar Sox pasted the Peoria Javelinas 8-1 on Tuesday. Mesa sent Detroit’s Blaine Hardy to the mound and he impressed, throwing four scoreless innings, giving up just four hits and not walking anyone with three strikeouts. Five other pitchers went to the mound and threw an inning each. Cam Bedrosian and R.J. Alvarez each struck out two in perfect innings. With only ten hits for the Solar Sox, C.J. Cron stood out, hitting his fifth home run of the AFL to go with a single and two runs driven in. The A’s Max Muncy also had two hits.

For Peoria, starter Brandon Maurer from the Mariners’ organization didn’t get far, giving up four runs on five hits and four walks in just two innings. Mike Nesseth gave up a run in two innings while Noel Arguelles gave up two runs in two innings. The batters only managed to get four hits although three were doubles by Orlando Calixte, Tommy Medica and Delino DeShields. Cameron Perkins may have gone oh for four with two strikeouts but he cut down two potential runs at the plate with a pair of outfield assists.
