Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 19th

All three Diamondbacks affiliates that saw action today won - though it took one of them 12 innings to pull out the victory. In general, it was an offensive-driven sweep: our farm teams outscored the opposition 25-14 in total, and there were three players who had four-hit games today. [N.B. No SnakeSounds posted at this point: if they appear later, I'll post them in the morning]

Snakelet of the Day:
Taylor Harbin (Double-A): 4-for-5, BB, HR, RBI, .462 avg.

Triple-A: Reno 13, Sacramento 6. The Aces offense continued to roll, outslugging the River Cats with LF Dave Winfree and 1B Brandon Allen each getting four hits and stealing a base, while seven different players drove in runs for Reno. CF Collin Cowgill and C Konrad Schmidt each reached base safely three times. Kevin Mulvey was the beneficiary of the offense, taking the W despite allowing five runs in 5.2 frames, on eight hits and four walks. Kam Mickolio allowed a run in 1.1 frames, while Daniel Stange closed the victory out for the Aces by pitching scoreless eighth and ninth innings. Reno are a league-best 9-3.

Double-A: Mobile 6, Jacksonville 5 (12). The BayBears outlasted the Suns; 3B Ryan Wheeler drove in the winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning, singling down the left field line to bring home LF Marc Krauss. SS Taylor Harbin had four hits and a walk, including a homer, while 1B Paul Goldschmidt's two hits, included his seventh HR. The Mobile bullpen threw up five shutout innings: Bryan Shaw had two frames of one-hit ball and Billy Spottiswood got his second W with a scoreless 12th. On Monday, two BayBears were named Southern League Players of the Week: Goldschmidt earned the hitter honors while right-hander Bryan Henry won the award for pitchers

High-A: Visalia 6, Stockton 3. According to Nick P, Mike Belfiore was scheduled to start this one, but I don't see him in the box-score. Might explain why the Rawhide cobbled together their pitching, with reliever Christian Beltre starting and allowing one run over three innings. Donny Baarns, director of broadcasting at Visalia, wrote to clarifiy things: "I saw some confusion on the blog today over who started last night for us in Stockton. It was Belfiore; the box score has been corrected now. Not sure how they got Beltre and Belfiore confused. Anyway, Belfiore looked good, showing solid movement on the changeup and slider. He was limited to 40 pitches, so we'll see how he progresses as they stretch him out more." Christopher Odegaard got the W with 2.1 shutout frames, and Yonata 'Empire State' Ortega picked up his second save with a scoreless ninth. DH Chris Owings delivered a pair of extra-base knocks, and C Rossmel Perez delivered a two-run home-run as part of a three-run fifth which saw Visalia take the lead for good, and also drew two walks.

A-ball: South Bend vs Great Lakes. Tuesday's scheduled game between the Silver Hawks and Loons was postponed due to "inclement weather". The game has been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.
