Arizona Fall League: Dodgers' Santiago, Ynoa shine in loss

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Mesa Solar Sox fell 4-3 to the Scottsdale Scorpions on Wednesday despite strong days from two Los Angeles Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers' pitcher Andres Santiago went five scoreless innings to help the Mesa Solar Sox to a 3-0 lead, but the Scottsdale Scorpions knocked in four runs in the final two frames on Wednesday to win 4-3 in the Arizona Fall League game.

Santiago gave up only one hit and had five strikeouts in the loss. He faced 16 batters and threw 70 pitches, 41 of which were strikes.

Mesa scored two runs in the bottom of the second inning to start off the scoring.

Dodgers' second baseman Rafael Ynoa extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a 2-for-5 batting performance against the Scorpions, and he knocked in lead-off hitter Matt Szczur with a triple in the bottom of the fifth inning that gave the Solar Sox a 3-0 advantage.

The Scorpions added a run in the eighth against Orioles prospect Mike Belfiore and three in the ninth against Cubs prospect Kevin Rhoderick.
