Yanks prospect O'Brien homers in Scorpions loss

Last night, the Yankee-affiliated Scottsdale Scorpions lost their 2013 AFL home opener to the Salt River Rafters, 12-2. This game was very one sided, as the Scorpions had just 1 hit through 6 innings. But on the bright side, Yankees third base/catching prospect Peter O'Brien did hit a two-run home run in this one, Scottsdale's only bright spot. 

Two Yankees pitching prospects, Fred Lewis and Brett Gerritse, did appear in this game. Now Lewis did great, throwing a scoreless frame while striking out one. 
But Gerritse really struggled. In his 1.1 innings of work, the right-hander walked two, gave up two hits, and surrendered three earned runs. I'd prefer he do better, but it's just game 2. He still has plenty of time to improve.
