Scorpions drop third straight game to Desert Dogs, 5-3

Yankees prospects Mason Williams and Peter O'Brien combined to go just 1-for-8 tonight as the Scottsdale Scorpions dropped their third consecutive game to the Glendale Desert Dogs, 5-3. The Scorps played okay in this one, but in the end they simply weren't good enough. 

The one hit in that combined 1-for-8 came from outfielder Mason Williams, who was 1-for-4 on the night. The hit was a double, but Williams still did not get past second base in that inning. As for O'Brien, this game was one to forget, as he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. 

As for the Yankees pitchers in action tonight, left-handed Fred Lewis threw 1.1 scoreless innings of relief while James Pazos, who has the pitching staff's only win so far this season to his line, tossed a scoreless ninth. With this loss, Scottsdale's record is now just 1-3, last in the AFL East. 


  1. Correction via game play by play. Mason Williams double to LF. Moves to 3B on a Gift Ngoepe groundout to 2B. Willams was stranded at 3B via strikes for C. Vaughn & Peter O'Brien.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
