Peoria 12, Scottsdale 4

The Javelinas pounded out 10 runs in the top of the eighth inning, turning a tight contest into a rout of Scottsdale on Thursday in the Arizona Fall League. Padres' top prospect Rymer Liriano led the charge for Peoria, doubling twice in the fateful frame and finishing with three RBIs and two runs scored. Evan Bigley (Twins) also drove in three runs -- two on a triple in the eighth -- and Javs leadoff hitter Jeudy Valdez (Padres) went 3-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored and an RBI. Alex Monsalve, Cleveland's No. 9 prospect, finished 4-for-4 for the Scorpions, driving in a pair with a double in the fourth. Recap | Gameday box score

Surprise 5, Salt River 4

Red Sox prospect Michael Almanzar drove in a pair of runs and Brian Fletcher (Royals) added two more on a base hit in the top of the ninth as Surprise held on to defeat Salt River. The Saguaros plated runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings with Cardinals' top infield prospect Kolten Wong driving in the team's second run on a line-drive double into the left-field gap. D-backs' No. 4 prospect Matt Davidson and Jake Marisnick (Blue Jays) both homered off Saguaros reliever Ryan Pressly (Red Sox) in the bottom of the ninth to cut the deficit to one, but Pressly settled down and stuck out Chris Owings -- Arizona's fifth-ranked prospect -- on three pitches to preserve the win.

Mesa 4, Phoenix 3

Mesa left fielder Joc Pederson (Dodgers) launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth and Astros' top prospect Jonathan Singleton drove in the go-ahead run on a base hit in the eighth to give the last-place Solar Sox their second straight win. Peterson's blast gave the Sox a 3-0 advantage until Grant Green, Oakland's top outfield prospect, tied the score with a three-run shot in the top of the eighth. Orioles right-hander Mike Wright tossed his best outing of the fall in his sixth AFL start, scattering five hits and a walk over four innings. Recap | Gameday box score
