Scottsdale routed by Salt River


11/8 Cup of Coffee: Scottsdale's modest 2-game winning streak ended yesterday, as the Scorpions were soundly defeated by Salt River, 9-4.

Scottsdale surrendered all 9 runs in the first 2 innings of play, as this one became out of reach as quickly as it began. Leading the way offensively for the Scorpions was Zach Walters (WAS), as he went 2-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI. Chris Scholl (LAA) got the start for Scottsdale, and this is an outing that Scholl presumably wishes he could forget. In 1.1 innings, he allowed 5 hits, 8 runs, walked 3 and did not strike out a batter.

For the Red Sox, Ryan Dent went 1-4 with a triple and an RBI, while Alex Hassan went 1-4 with a double. Jeremy Kehrt pitched a perfect inning of relief in the losing effort. Though Kehrt got off to a rough start in the AFL, he has rebounded nicely. The righty has allowed just 1 earned run in his last 4 appearances.

Scottsdale will get an immediate chance at revenge, as it hosts Salt River this evening at 9:35 EST.
