AFL – Solar Sox 11, Scorpions 9


Christian Koss (Scorpions, 2B): 2/5, 3 RBI, R – While the Scottsdale Scorpions did play, and lose, yesterday against the Mesa Solar Sox, no Cleveland players were involved. For the sake of writing something up anyway, we’ll take a look at the top three players who were involved. Even though they were down 9-3 at the time, Koss tried to come back in the eighth with a two run single that scored Andrew Bechtold and Will Wilson. Kole Cottom, who was advanced to second on the play, eventually scored on a single to bring the game to within two. Trying for another comeback after the Sox scored twice in the top of the ninth, Koss hit another RBI single to score Matt Wallner and keep the bases loaded. The next batter was retired, however, and the Scorpions lost by two.

Best of the rest

Carlos Garcia (Scorpions, RP): 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 K – Garcia joined the game in sixth, down 9-2. He walked his first batter, but induced a double play with the next batter, so it didn’t matter. He then struck out three of the next four batters for two scoreless innings of relief.

Jeter Downs (Scorpions, ): 2/4, 2 R, HR, BB – Downs hit a solo homer in the first to give Scottsdale the early lead. He then walked in the third and singled in the ninth. He advanced to third on another single and scored on a passed ball.
