Winter League Sunday Round-up
November 23, 2008
The Championship game between Mesa Solar Sox and Phoenix Desert Dogs took place yesterday (11/22) with the Desert Dogs winning 10-4 to claim the AFL title. The Desert Dogs rode out the first 5 innings against Atlanta Braves uber prospect Tommy Hanson (5IP, 3H, 1R, 8K) before exploding for 5 runs in the 6th inning and 4 runs in the 7th against the Sox bullpen.
