Arizona Fall League: Kaleb Cowart homers in Scottsdale's 3-2 loss

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Third baseman Kaleb Cowart has quietly turned his winter league season around, with Thursday's solo home run being another step in the right direction.

Los Angeles Angels prospect Kaleb Cowart continued his mini tear Thursday with his first home run of the AFL season in the Scottsdale Scorpions' 3-2 loss to the Peoria Javelinas.

Cowart sat out Wednesday's game but picked up right were he left off from Tuesday's solid line (1-for-4, two runs), smacking a solo shot to start a potential ninth-inning rally. Unfortunately for Scottsdale, the rest of the Scorpions failed to follow his lead.

Fellow Angels prospect Randal Grichuk managed to keep things going with a walk in the at bat following Cowart's but a strikeout and a double play quickly thwarted Scottsdale's chance at a comeback. Grichuk had a solid day overall, going 1-for-3 with a run and a stolen base to go with the walk.

In 17 AFL games this season, Cowart has a .200/.265/.283 line with eight RBI, seven runs and 17 total bases. As for Grichuk, he's batted to the tune of a .228/.297/.351 line with five RBI, nine runs and 20 total bases.
