Pitching Recap: Miguel Nunez bounced back from a rough outing to throw a shutout inning for Scottsdale, allowing just one walk in the inning. Nunez had allowed a run in 1 1/3 innings of work in the season opener on Tuesday.

Scorpions Notes: 19-year old Gleyber Torres (Yankees) delivered a walk-off single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth to win the game. Torres, usually a shortstop, played second base for just the second time in his career, and also had a ground-rule double earlier in the game. Torres now has a home run, two RBI and is hitting .375/.444/.875 in the AFL.
