Josh Vitters went 2-for-4, hitting a two-run double in the fifth, and Ryan Flaherty was 1-for-5 in the Mesa Solar Sox’s 9-6 loss Wednesday to Phoenix in Arizona Fall League play. Jake Muyco started and gave up four runs, three earned, on five hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings. Chris Carpenter pitched 1 2/3 innings, and gave up two runs on three hits and one walk. Kyle Smit took the loss as he was charged with three runs on five hits over 1 1/3 innings.
