11/12 Zambrano & AFL update

Carlos Zambrano gave up three runs on five hits, including two home runs,  over six innings Saturday night in his second start in Venezuela. Zambrano, who was pitching for Caribes against Zulia, struck out five of the 23 batters he faced. The homers included a two-run shot by Ernesto Mejia with two out in the first, and a solo homer by Colin Curtis with one out in the sixth.

* In Arizona Fall League play, DJ LeMahieu had two hits and Josh Vitters had one RBI in Mesa’s 8-2 loss to Phoenix on Saturday. Junior Lake was 1-for-4, scored a run and stole his 18th base. He’s now 18-for-18 in steals. Only Eric Young Jr. had more stolen bases in the AFL (20). Jeff Beliveau took the loss, giving up three runs on three hits in one inning. He struck out three but also served up a two-run homer in the fourth. Andrew Cashner also pitched one inning in relief, retiring all three batters he faced. After a day off Sunday, the Mesa Solar Sox play host to Peoria on Monday at HoHoKam Park.
