Scottsdale lost its third straight last night by a 3-1 tally to the Salt River Rafters to drop the Scorpions’ record to 3-5.
Bryce Harper was the sole National to appear in the game. He went 1-for-4 and made two putouts while playing left field.
The Scorpions finish the week with a home-and-home against Peoria tonight and tomorrow afternoon.
