The Giants' Villalona was the lone Scorpion with two hits. He was also one of their six hitters with at least 2 SO as seven Desert Dogs pitchers combined for 17 K. Jacobs, whom the Red Sox traded to the White Sox in July for Matt Thornton, hit the game's lone HR.
The Giants' Law, the fourth of six Scorpions relievers, had 3 K in 1.2 perfect IP. Heaney, whom the Marlins drafted ninth overall a year ago and who may now be one of the top three left-handed pitching prospects in the minors, struck out over half (6 of 11) his batters.
