The World Series over, but baseball fans still have the Arizona Fall League to tide them over for another three weeks.
The Mesa Solar Sox, whose roster includes former Erie SeaWolves, are one of its six teams. The Solar Sox dropped to a league-worst 4-13 after the Surprise Saguaros beat them 7-2 Monday.
Nick Castellanos continued his transformation from third base to the outfield as Mesa’s left fielder. The Tigers’ first draft pick in 2010 went 2-for-5 in Monday’s loss.
Aaron Westlake, a first base prospect in Detroit’s system, also scored one of Mesa’s runs.
