The Peoria Javelinas pounded out 10 hits, but lost to Surprise 8-4. Phillies third base prospect Cody Asche had a nice game, while three Phillies pitching prospects made their first appearance of the season.

After an opening day win over Surprise, the Peoria Javelinas dropped their first game of the season Wednesday, falling to the Saguaros 8-4.

Cody Asche walked to leadoff the top of the second inning for Peoria and helped get the Javelinas off to a good start when he later scored on a base-hit by Stefan Romero to give Peoria a 1-0 early lead.

Asche would figure in the scoring again when he hit a two-out double in the top of the seventh to drive in Peoria's third run of the inning, cutting Surprise's lead to 8-4. The Javelinas were unable to continue their rally and wouldn't be able to do any further damage.

Three Phillies pitching prospects pitched in the game, with Tyler Knigge throwing a perfect inning in relief. Colby Shreve allowed one hit in one inning of work, while Jay Johnson was tagged for an earned run in 1/3 of an inning of work.
