AFL – Scorpions 12, Desert Dogs 4


Richie Palacios (Scorpions, LF): 1/5, HR – Palacios continued his strong start to the AFL season with a home run in his first at bat. He cooled off a bit after that as he was out in his final four at bats including two strike outs.

Best of the rest

Michael Amditis (Scorpions, PH/DH): 1/2 – Amditis joined the game in the sixth as a pinch hitter for Patrick Bailey. He grounded into a double play in this plate appearance, then singled in the ninth in his second. A walk pushed him to second, but he was stranded there

Matt Turner (Scorpions, RP): 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 BB, K – Since there are so few players going for Cleveland in the Fall League, we can place a microscope on everyone. Turner joined the game in the fifth, up 11-2. He gave up a home run to Carson Taylor to begin his first inning, then struck out a batter and walked a batter in an otherwise eventless inning. He allowed a double in the sixth, then with two outs walked a batter and allowed a single for another run. He still left the game with an 11-4 lead.
