Scorpions beat Desert Dogs in 10, 2-1

Yankees prospect Mason Williams went 1-for-5 and scored the game winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning last night as the Scottsdale Scorpions pulled off somewhat of an upset at home over the Glendale Desert Dogs, 2-1. Going into this one, the Desert Dogs were 5-2, first in the AFL East while the Scorpions were 2-6, last in the AFL East. So, while it is still early in the season, you can't deny that this win was a nice one to get, as it moves the Scorps to within 2.5 games of first place in the East. 

Pinstripes prospect Peter O'Brien, who has struggled lately, went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in this game, continuing his strikeout troubles. Pitcher Brett Gerritse, who had an ERA of over 9 going into last night, pitched two scoreless innings of relief, earning him his first hold of the season. So, that's good and this win was good. Let's hope they do this some more.
