10/29 AFL & winter ball update
Josh Vitters hit a RBI single in a five-run first inning to back Andrew Cashner and lead the Mesa Solar Sox to a 12-5 win over Scottsdale on Wednesday in the Arizona Fall League. Vitters, the Cubs’ No. 1 Draft pick in 2007, and Starlin Castro each had two hits and one RBIs. Cashner, the Cubs’ top pick in ’08, did not give up a run over four innings, striking out four and walking two.
In Venezuela, Robinson Chirinos had three hits including a three-run homer, to help Magallanes beat Caracas, 6-3, on Wednesday. Former Cubs pitcher Sean Gallagher, now with San Diego, picked up the win, pitching five innings.
