Two trends continued on Monday — Scottsdale lost while Bryce Harper hit safely (2-for-4, 2RBI).

The Scorpions led twice in this one, as Harper extended his hit streak to ten games with a two-out RBI single in the 1st that gave the Scorpions a 2-0 lead. He tied the game with an RBI double in the 4th, an inning in which Scottsdale reclaimed the lead at 4-3. Defensively, Harper made one putout and had no assists or errors.

The Scorpions ‘pen coughed up three in the 6th to give back the lead and single runs in the 8th and 9th innings as they would go on to lose this one by a count of 9-5. After 22 games, the Scottsdale record stands at 7-15 with an elimination number of seven. The defending champions are dead last in ERA, runs allowed, runs scored, hits, and total bases.

Zach Walters was the only other National to appear in the game, flying out to CF in the bottom of the 8th and playing 3B in the top of the 9th with no defensive chances.

  1. Thanks for adding the mlb.com links.

    There’s a lot of offensive talent on the Scottsdale team. Less so on the pitching side. But surprised they’re trailing both offensively and defensively. Fire the manager!

  2. Waiting for someone to Tebow after they cross homeplate and before the enter the dugout

  3. Looks like someone going to All Saints Day Holy Day of obligation Mass?

  4. Everyone in the AFL is Tebowing just follow any of the players on Twitter. Harper is not alone here.
