Arizona Fall League Recap: Lien not finishing strong

Only Connor Lien was in action on Tuesday and he struggled yet again

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Scottsdale Scorpions 8 vs. Peoria Javelinas 2

Box Score

  • Connor Lien, CF: 0-4, 2 K
The Javelinas are now eliminated from contention for a slot in the AFL championship game as they fell to Scottsdale 8-2. The Javelinas had an outside shot at getting in to the championship game but the loss combined with the Surprise Saguaros getting their act together clinched the division for Surprise. Connor Lien was the only prospect for the Braves that played in the game and he struggled to make contact yet again. With two more strikeouts, he now has 30 in the AFL this season, second most in the league, while hitting a paltry .171 with 1 homer and 3 RBI on the season. Connor was still a bit young for the AFL and hopefully can just use this experience to make gains next season as opposed to this being a sign that we are in store for some regression.
