SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Beicker Mendoza hit an RBI double in the top of the 10th inning to help lead the AZL Giants Orange to a 7-5 win over the AZL Royals on Saturday.

George Bell scored the go-ahead run on the double after he started the inning on second. The AZL Giants Orange later scored four more runs in the inning, including a two-run double by Anyesber Sivira.

AZL Royals attempted a comeback in the bottom of the inning, scoring on a double by Kember Nacero that brought home Hector Pineda and Raymond Lopez. In the following at-bat, Isaiah Henry hit an RBI single, driving in Nacero to cut the AZL Giants Orange lead to 7-5. However, the rally ended when Yoel Veras got Gage Hughes to hit into a forceout with a runner on first to end the game.

Preston White (1-2) got the win with a scoreless inning in relief while Chih-Ting Wang (1-2) took the loss in the Arizona League game.
