Travis Shaw, who could very well be the PawSox starting first baseman come 2014, had a huge day for the Surprise Saguaros of the Arizona Fall League as they trounced the Peoria Javelinas 14-5 Thursday afternoon.

Shaw was 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored to pace the Saguaros 20-hit barrage.

Starting prospect Miguel Pena pitched four strong innings allowing three unearned runs on just two hits while striking out five. He lowered his ERA to 3.04 and his record is now 3-1 in six Fall League starts.

Reliever Noe Ramirez followed with two scoreless innings allowing just a hit while walking one and striking out one. He sports a 1.38 ERA (2ER in 13 IP) in nine appearances. Opponents are hitting .167 against the righty.
