A much busier day than usual for the Nats prospects in yesterday’s 3-2 loss by the Scottsdale Scorpions. The highlights:
- Bryce Harper went 0-for-3 with a walk while playing RF, where he made two putouts and had a triple go off his glove. On his walk he stole second but was caught trying to steal third with one out and the Scorpions trailing 3-1
- Derek Norris caught and went 1-for-3 with a run scored, but committed an error while attempting to throw out a runner at second
- Zach Walters went 2-for-3 with an RBI while playing 3B, where he had one assist
- Rafael Martin made his first appearance, tossing a scoreless inning while issuing a walk and striking out one
- Pat Lehman suffered through two innings, giving up two runs on four hits, including a solo HR
Scottsdale returns to .500 (3-3) with the loss. Sammy Solis is slated to start tonight’s game against the Salt River Rafters.
