Two St. Louis Cardinals position players started in Tuesday’s contest and played the entire game: shortstop Edmundo Sosa, batting second, and the fifth-place hitter, first baseman John Nogowski.

In the home first, Sosa singled softly to center (the first of his team’s four meager hits on the day) but was picked off first base and thrown out easily at second. He grounded out twice and flied out in his other at-bats.

Nogowski went 0-for-4. His outs were diverse with a strikeout, ground out, fly out and an infield chopper turned into a double play.

Arturo Reyes was the only Cardinals pitcher to take the mound for Surprise. Reyes worked in the ninth inning and allowed two runs on the final three hits of the Javelinas’ 15 mustered in the game. In addition to the three singles yielded, Reyes threw a wild pitch and allowed a sacrifice fly.

Wednesday’s game: Surprise will host the Mesa Solar Sox on Wednesday afternoon, with a 2:30 PM Central time first pitch. Starting for Surprise will be Burch Smith (TB) (0-1, 7.56).
