Huntzinger and Hassan lead Scorpions to much needed victory

11/9 Cup of Coffee: The Scorpions shut out Salt River on Tuesday, 2-0, with Red Sox representatives being the prime contributors.

The game was scoreless until the bottom of the 2nd, when a fielding error on a single by Dan Butler plated Alex Hassan. The Scorpions added an insurance run in the bottom of the 5th on an RBI single by Hassan. Offensively, the team was led by Hassan, who went 2-3 with a walk and RBI. Bryce Harper (WAS) struck out 3 times in the game, but a 5th-inning single extended his hitting streak to 14 games. Brock Huntzinger started for Scottsdale and turned in his 2nd straight positive outing en route to picking up the victory. Huntzinger pitched 4.0 shutout innings, scattering 4 hits, walking none and striking out 3.

Other Red Sox prospects to appear in the game were Butler, who went 2-4, Caleb Clay and Will Latimer. Clay pitched 1.0 inning of relief, allowing 1 hit, walking 1 and not recording a strikeout, while Latimer pitched 1.1 hitless innings, walking 1 and striking out none.

Scottsdale will next take the field this evening, as it hosts Phoenix at 9:35 EST.
