Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up 4/8: Southern Comfort Edition

After having such a great camp in the big-leagues, Double-A hitters apparently don't seem like that much of a challenge for Patrick Corbin.

Back at Double-A Mobile after a strong Spring Training, D-backs southpaw pitching prospect Patrick Corbin was looking to build on his early success with a strong return to Mobile. One start into his time back at Mobile, and Corbin is already doing just that. Looking to continue Mobile's winning ways, Corbin took the mound in Mobile's final outing prior to their home opener tomorrow, and performed admirably.

Snakelet of the Day:

Patrick Corbin (Double-A): 6 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 5:1 K:BB, 5:4 GO:AO

Triple-A: Reno 2, Colorado Springs 5. (2-2) Lefty Zach Kroenke had a sub-par outing, giving up four runs in five innings on 10 hits, a walk, and two strikeouts. The Reno bullpen trio of Jensen Lewis, Mike Zagurski, and Mike DeMark did well in allowing just one run over the following four innings, but the Reno offense couldn't claw back.Cole Gillespie and Jacob Elmore each had a pair of hits, with Elmore also drawing a walk, but the Aces had no extra-base hits and couldn't drive runs across the plate.

Double-A: Mobile 8, Mississippi 2. (4-0) Finishing up a four-game sweep to start the season, the BayBears offense jumped on Mississippi early. Mobile plated four runs in the first - including a three-run inside-the-park home run from Marc Krauss - and three in the second. Adam Eaton reached base three times on a hit and two walks while stealing a base, David Nick hit a double and two singles, and Matt Davidson singled twice and walked. That was more than enough for starting pitcher Patrick Corbin, who carried his solid Spring into his first outing of the year, throwing six shutout frames while striking out five and walking just one and allowing six hits. Flamethrower Yonata Ortega closed out the game with a scoreless ninth.

Hi-A: Visalia 2, Bakersfield 5. (2-2) First baseman Yazy Arbelo hit his second home run in as many days, but outside of Arbelo and Chris Owings' two singles, the rest of the Rawhide lineup was silent, combining for three singles and a walk. Starter Michael Bolsinger struggled, giving up five runs - three earned - in 4.1 innings, allowing five hits, including a homer, and a walk while striking out four. Patrick Schuster came on in relief of Bolsinger and worked 2.2 scoreless innings, followed by a scoreless frame from Mike Belfiore to cap things off.

Low-A: South Bend had the day off on Sunday. The Hawks will make their home debut on Monday, and I'll be in attendance! I'll have some scouting reports for you all following the game.
