Huntzinger earns win for Scottsdale

11/15 Cup of Coffee: The Scorpions jumped out to a large lead early on, and held on for the 6-5 win against the Rafters.

In the interests of perfect symmetry, Scottsdale scored 1 run in the first on a Mike Trout (LAA) solo home run, 2 runs in the second on a Dan Butler 2-run single and you guessed it, 3 in the third on a Bryce Harper (WAS) RBI double and a 2-run triple off the bat of Joe Panik (SF). Undaunted by the sizable deficit, Salt River fought back with 3 runs in the fourth and 2 in the seventh. Ultimately, the Scorpions were able to hold on for dear life and get the win, keeping the Rafters off the board in the ninth despite having loaded the bases. Offensively, the team was led by Butler and Panik, as each went 1-3 with 2 RBI. Brock Huntzinger started for Scottsdale and earned the win. Huntzinger went 3.2 innings, surrendering 4 hits and 3 runs. He walked 1 and struck out 3. For the Red Sox, Alex Hassan also appeared in the game and went 0-4.

Scottsdale will take on Salt River again this afternoon at 3:35 EST.
