Alaskans compete against pros

Alaskans Scooter Bynum, Zach Ferntheil and Johnny Meszaros had strong showings in an exhibition showcase against minor league baseball players that ended Wednesday in Phoenix.

In four games, Bynum, who played for the Alaska Baseball Academy in the past, went 7 for 13 with a double, scored three runs and stole three bases. The trio of Alaskans played with a team primarily made up of Canadians.

Ferntheil, a Service graduate, finished with eight strikeouts through 8 2/3 innings. Meszaros, a 2013 Tampa Bay Rays draft pick, furnished eight K's in eight innings.
