Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up 9/6: Limited Edition

Get ready to have your mind blown.  Not only is "Limited Edition" a play on the fact that these reports will only be in production for a limited time, but there was also a limited amount of action in the D-backs' farm system today!  Hooray puns!!!  With the full-season affiliates enjoying an off-day before the post-season begins tomorrow, only Rookie-level Missoula was at work on Tuesday.  Although, thinking back on that last sentence, "at work" may be a bit of a stretch...

Snakelet of the Day:

Matt Sample (Advanced-Rookie): 1 IP, 2 K

Advanced-Rookie: Missoula 0, Billings 7.  (40-34)  The Osprey offense managed just four hits in the one, all singles, as Billings left-hander Tony Cingrani - a third-round pick by the Reds in the 2011 draft - struck out 10 Osprey in his six shutout innings.  The Missoula pitching didn't fare much better, as starter Robby Rowland closed a forgettable regular-season by allowing five runs in five innings of work, posting a 6:1 K:BB ratio but hitting two batters, allowing seven hits, and surrendering a home run.  Rowland, one of the more promising young arms in the system and a top-30 D-backs prospect in spite of his struggles, closes his season with a line of 14 games started, 68 innings pitched, 95 hits allowed, 15 home runs surrendered, and an 8.07 ERA, despite posting a fantastic overall K:BB ratio of 52:17 and a 2.16 GO/AO.  The 6'6" right-hander still has plenty of potential and projection to go with a solid arsenal of pitches, but simply needs a lot of command refinement before he'll ever grace a major-league mound.  Reliever Victor Lara followed Rowland with a two-run inning of his own to worsen the deficit, but Sample and Frank Santana were able to end this one quickly with 1-2-3 innings.
