Desert Dogs take advantage of Scottsdale miscues to stymie Scorpions

11/10 Cup of Coffee: Taking full advantage of three Scottsdale errors, the Phoenix Desert Dogs blanked the Scorpions, 5-0.

Phoenix jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first on a Kevin Ahrens (TOR) RBI double. The play was aided by throwing errors by Scottsdale right fielder Tyson Gilllies (PHI) and pitcher Sammy Solis (WAS), which allowed an additional two runs to score. In the fourth, a costly throwing error by Scorpions catcher Derek Norris (WAS) allowed another run to scamper home, and Anthony Gose (TOR) laced a two out RBI single to give the Desert Dogs a 5-0 advantage. The Scorpions never threatened to score outside of the first inning, when they left a runner at third.

Alex Hassan was the lone Red Sox prospect that saw action, going 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout as the Scorpions designated hitter.

Scottsdale looks to get back into the win column this evening as they host the Surprise Saguaros.
