Jose Tena (2B): 2/3, RBI, 2B, 3B – Tena had a banner day at the plate in the Scorpions loss to the Saguaros. He tripled home a run in the second, then doubled in his next at bat in the fourth, but was stranded. He was replaced by a pinch hitter in the sixth.
Richie Palacios (LF): 1/4, R, BB, 2B, E – Palacios walked in his second at bat, then scored on Tena’s triple. He added a double in the eighth, but was stranded.
Tanner Tully (SP): 3 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, BB, K, HR – Tully had a good first inning despite allowing an infield fly to drop for the single to start off the game. He then walked a batter in the second, but used a double play to finish the inning without any other issues. In the third, he allowed a home run, triple, single and double with an error from Palacios essentially turning the single into a double and giving the Saguaros four extra base hits in the inning.
Damon Casetta-Stubbs (RP): 0.1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, K – Casetta-Stubbs replaced Tully after his disastrous third and had one of his worst appearances this year. He allowed a double and walk to start the inning, the struck out a batter before another walk loaded the bases. A pair of singles followed to give the Saguaros the lead, after which he was pulled for Pinto.
Aaron Pinto (RP): 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K – While Pinto’s line looks fairly clean, the two out double he allowed in the fourth brought home two runs that were given to Casetta-Stubbs. The ground out before that also allowed a run that was scored to his teammate. He stayed in for the fifth and allowed a single, but struck out two in a scoreless frame.
