Zach Walters’ two-run shot in the top of the 8th broke a 4-4 tie as the Scottsdale Scorpions scored five times over the final two innings for a 9-4 win over the Phoenix Desert Dogs.

Walters had been 0-for-4 for the afternoon and finished 1-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI. Defensively, he played third base and had a putout, an assist, but made his second error.

Derek Norris went 1-for-3 and walked twice and had 11 putouts (all Ks) while playing catcher. Phoenix did not attempt to steal a base.

With the win, Scottsdale’s record stands at 5-11. This week it’s home-and-home games against Peoria, Mesa and Salt River with night games on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

  1. For as solid as the 2011 Scottsdale squad looked on paper, they are clearly underachieving in terms of W-L record, imo.

  2. From what you saw of Walters, what position do you see him slotting at long term? Sickels had him at a C. Nice to see him get the AFL invite. An AFL invitee for a Marquis rental and immediate injury following the trade seems real solid.

    • Ive been impressed with what Walters has done in the AFL, the fact that he played most of the year at A, and has been able to look decent in the AFL is a good sign

    • I’d like to see him stick at SS… seemed to have the range and arm from what I saw in August/September.
