AFL: Two Hits For Josh Bell In Scottsdale Loss

With just three days left in the Arizona Fall League season, Scottsdale took on Glendale on Tuesday. Josh Bell was the designated hitter and the only Pittsburgh Pirates player in the starting lineup. The Scorpions lost 8-4, dropping them to 11-19 on the year with two games left. Tyler Glasnow will start Wednesday, followed by Joely Rodriguez in the season finale on Thursday.

In the second inning, Bell had a nice seven pitch at-bat before flying out to right field. In the fourth inning, he hit a line drive into right field for an RBI single. Bell was then thrown out trying to steal second. In the sixth inning, he collected a ground-rule double, his eighth double of the season. In the eighth inning, Bell was called out on strikes on a full-count pitch. He finished the game 2-for-4 with his seventh run driven in. The two hits helped him raise his average to .221 through 77 at-bats. In 55 at-bats against right-handed pitchers, Bell is hitting .200 with four doubles and a 10:10 BB/SO ratio.
