11/6 AFL & winter ball update
Junior Lake went 1-for-3 with a double but also made a costly throwing error as the West team beat the East, 11-2, in the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars game Saturday in Surprise. Cubs prospects Chris Carpenter and Trey McNutt each pitched in the game in relief. After an off day Sunday, the three rejoin the Mesa Solar Sox and play host to Peoria at HoHoKam Park on Monday.
In Venezuela, Austin Bibens-Dirkx gave up two hits and struck out five over seven innings to help Zulia beat La Guaira, 4-0. On Sunday, Carlos Zambrano is scheduled to start for Caribes against Magallanes. It will be his first game since Aug. 12.
