Scorpions hammer Solar Sox 11-1


10/23 Cup of Coffee: The Scottsdale Scorpions pounded out nineteen hits on Thursday and coasted to an 11-1 win over Mesa.

The contest was scoreless for the first three innings, as Mesa starter Andrew Cashner (CHC) held the Scorpions to two hits to that point. Cashner started the fourth and retired the first two Scottsdale hitters before giving up a single. He was then removed from the game by Solar Sox manager Brandon Hyde. Marco Albano (LAA) entered and promptly gave up a two-run homer to the first hitter he faced. Before the inning was over, two more runs had scored, giving the Scorpions a 4-0 lead. The Solar Sox replied with their only run of the game in the bottom of the fourth, as Rene Tosoni (MIN) led off the inning with a triple and scored on a one-out sacrifice fly. Scottsdale added seven more runs over the next four innings on its way to the lopsided win.

Two Sox prospects saw action on Thursday. Ryan Kalish went 0 for 4 and struck out three times. Jose Iglesias went 1 for 2 and had a base on balls. In the sixth inning, Iglesias committed his first error of the season when he made a wild throw to first.

Mesa squares off against the Peoria Saguaros at 2:35 EST today.
