10/17 AFL update
Cubs prospect Josh Vitters drove in four runs, including three on his first homer, to help the Mesa Solar Sox beat Peoria Saguaros, 10-1, on Saturday in an Arizona Fall League game in Mesa. Vitters, who started at third, hit a three-run homer in a six-run fourth inning and added a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Cubs pitching prospect Kyle Smit picked up the win in relief, pitching two scoreless innings. The Solar Sox have Sunday off and resume play Monday against the Peoria Javelinas.
