October 20th in the Arizona Fall League
Thursday was not a good day for ex-Timber Rattlers starting pitchers in the Arizona Fall League.
Nathan Adcock (’08) was the starting pitcher for Surprise and took the loss as Salt River won 7-2. Adcock was the starter and allowed five runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts. Adcock is 1-1 in two starts down in the AFL.
The really bad news was in Peoria’s 10-9 loss to Phoenix. Cody Scarpetta (’09) faced seven batters in the first inning for Peoria and did not retire any of those batters. He allowed four hits and three walks. Phoenix hit a pair of homers, including a grand slam, to grab a 7-0 lead. Scarpetta is 0-1 with an 18.00 ERA in the AFL.
There was good news on other fronts in that game for Peoria.
Scooter Gennett (’10) went 3-for-5 with three runs scored, a double, a walk, and three runs scored. Gennett’s slash line is: .417/.488/.667
Daniel Meadows (’09) pitched two innings and allowed a run on two hits.
Jed Bradley, one of Milwaukee’s first round picks in the 2011 draft, made his Arizona Fall League debut. He worked the sixth inning. Here is how it went:
