All but Vasalia picked up a win last night for Arizona's farm teams, as Visalia suffered through a pretty brutal eleven run inning. Barry Enright
started for Reno (he didn't factor into the decision), while Tyler Skaggs
was solid once again. That's sorta his modus operandi, just being awesome and stuff. All around, a "decent" night for the farm. Except, once again, for Visalia. Poor Andrew Chafin & Co.
Snakelet of the Day
(Triple-A): 4-for-5, double, home run, three RBI
Triple-A: Reno 8, Tacoma 7. There was a bit of a thriller in Reno, as the Aces loaded the bases in the bottom-half of the tenth before walking it off on Mark Reed's suicide squeeze. Ryan Wheeler was on fire Friday night, going 4-5 and finishing a triple shy of the cycle with three batted in. Barry Enright started the game for Reno (3.2IP, 3ER, 5BB, 0SO), but Jonathan Albaladejo picked up the win.
Double-A: Mobile 4 @ Jacksonville 2. Tyler Skaggs was awesome once again, going eight strong innings while only allowing two earned. He walked three while only striking out four, but it was enough for his fourth win of the season. Mobile's two-run ninth proved to be the difference in the contest, as the BayBears maintained their three game first-place lead.
High-A: Visalia 4, Lancaster 15. Visalia played a tie game if you ignore Lancaster's eleven run explosion in the top half of the fifth inning. Andrew Chafin walked five in 4.1 innings while giving up six, with Victor Capellan's 1.2 innings of relief accounting for the other seven runs in the game. Bobby Borchering had a decent game, going 2-3 with a double.
A-ball: South Bend 11 @ Dayton 6. Jesse Darah picked up the win for the Silver Hawks, striking out eleven batters over six innings while only issuing one free pass. On the offensive side of things, catcher Yovan Gonzalez led the way for South Bend, going 3-4 with a double while scoring twice.
