10/28 AFL update
Brett Jackson hit a two-run single in a four-run fifth inning and stole a base in the Mesa Solar Sox’s 7-6 win over the Scottsdale Scorpions in Arizona Fall League action Wednesday. Jackson is the Cubs’ 2009 No. 1 Draft pick. Kyle Smit, acquired from the Dodgers in the Ted Lilly-Ryan Theriot-Blake DeWitt deal, picked up the win in relief, getting three ground outs in the seventh. David Cales and Chris Carpenter, also Cubs prospects, pitched in the game. Both Cales and Carpenter pitched at Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa. The Solar Sox play host to the Peoria Javelinas on Thursday at HoHoKam Stadium.
