Indians' Barnes rebounds in second start

Indians' Barnes rebounds in second start

Red Sox prospect Jose Iglesias drove in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and Scott Barnes pitched four dominant innings as the Peoria Javelinas beat the Mesa Solar Sox, 4-2, on Monday.

Barnes (Indians) bounced back from a rough Arizona Fall League debut, striking out five and allowing one hit over four innings. The lefty, who was roughed up for five runs over 2 2/3 innings in his Fall League debut Oct. 12, threw 54 pitches -- 35 for strikes -- and did not walk a batter in the no-decision. The St. John's product, originally drafted by San Francisco in 2008, went 6-11 with a 5.22 ERA in 26 starts at Double-A Akron in the regular season.

Iglesias, who defected from Cuba last year to sign with Boston, knocked in fellow Red Sox prospect Ryan Lavarnway with an RBI single in the top of the 10th inning. Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis scored a second run on a wild pitch by Robert Fish (Angels).

Tempers flared in the ninth when Nate Tenbrink (Mariners) singled, took second on an fielding error by Mesa first baseman Matt Rizzotti (Phillies) and then scored when Matt Lawson (Mariners) hit a fielder's choice grounder to Rizzotti at first to knot the game, 2-2. Rizzotti struck out swinging for the second out in the bottom of the frame and was ejected by home plate umpire Darren Budahn.

Tenbrink finished 3-for-4, his third straight game with a hit. Mariners prospect Tom Wilhelmsen (1-0) struck out four over the final two innings to pick up the victory.

Josh Harrison (Pirates) and Jeremy Moore (Angels) knocked in Mesa's run. Brandon Wood (Angels) endured a rough day batting cleanup, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.

Former Mets first-round pick Brad Holt started for the Sox and allowed an unearned run on two hits and three walks over three frames. Fish (0-1) allowed two runs on two hits and a pair of walks in the 10th to suffer the loss.
