The Arizona Fall League was back in the full swing of things on Monday after its “Fall Stars” game over the weekend. In the first game back, the Scottsdale Scorpions jumped on Peoria reliever Mike Nesseth for three runs in the top of the 10th inning to win it 7-4. Atlanta prospect Kyle Kubitza went deep for a solo home run while Tommy La Stella, Addison Maruszak and Cam Maron each had a pair of hits. La Stella drove in a pair of runs while Maruszak added a pair of walks to reach base four times in the game. Scottsdale starter Adalberto Mejia gave up a pair of runs over his three innings but the bullpen was very good overall. Shae Simmons struck out the side in his inning (but also gave up two hits) while John Cornely struck out two in his inning.

Peoria starter Matt Heidenreich also got lit up a little bit, surrendering three runs on four hits and two walks over four innings. Alex Sogard had a strong inning in relief, striking out two while Nesseth was the one who gave up the game, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks over an inning and two-thirds. The Padres’ Cory Spangenberg had another excellent game, going yard with a two-run home run in the third inning and adding a single and a double for a three-for-five game. Japhet Amador and Chris Taylor added two hits each which Amador having a single and a double as well as an RBI.
