Tuesday wasn't a good day to be affiliated with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Los Angeles Dodgers pitching prospect Andres Santiago surrendered seven runs, as the Mesa Solar Sox were shut out by the Surprise Saguaros, 7-0, on Tuesday in Arizona Fall League play.
Fellow Dodgers hopeful Onelki Garcia made his first start of the Arizona Fall League, pitching two innings of shutout baseball. Santiago came in the third inning, but didn't make it until the fourth. He finished the game with seven runs off of eight hits in just 1⅔ innings to balloon his ERA to 7.02. He gave up one home run in the game.
Dodgers' prospect Red Patterson came to relieve Santiago and closed out the fourth and fifth inning, striking out one in the process.
Shortstop Rafael Ynoa was the only Dodgers position prospect to play in the game. He finished 1-for-3 with one strikeout to raise his average to .324.
The Mesa Solar Sox sit at the bottom of the Arizona Fall League standings at 6-16.
