Washington Nationals' Stephen Strasburg vs '09 No. 2 Overall Pick Dustin Ackley.

Maybe the Phoenix Desert Dogs could have saved a few runs for Stephen Strasburg? The Desert Dogs pounded the Peo Javelinas, Peoria, Arizona's second-favorite Arizona Fall League team 17-4 Wednesday afternoonChris Marrero was the only Nationals' prospect in the lineup, and he went 0 for 2 with 3 walks and 1 run scored, lowering his AVG a bit to .389 (7 for 18) after 5 AFL games. DC pitching prospect Jeff Mandel threw his third scoreless frame for Phoenix. The 24-year-old right-hander's allowed just 1 hit in 3.0 IP, and Wednesday it took just four pitches to get the first two outs of the eighth, and five more to record the final out of the frame when White Sox' infield prospect C.J. Retherford flew out to right field. 

Strasburg vs Ackley: 1 vs 2...Dustin Ackley, 21, the Seattle Mariners' 1st Round pick, taken second overall behind Stephen Strasburg in this past June's draft, is a 6'1'' left-handed-hitting OF who hit over .400 in all three seasons he played for the North Carolina Tarheels, ending his college career by hitting 18 doubles, 4 triples and 22 HR's, while collecting 73 RBI's, 13 SB and 50 walks, and striking out just 34 times in 266 at bats, over which he posted a .517 OBP, a .763 SLG and a 1.280 OPS...
