Dbacks Minor League Round-Up 9/1

Next to last day of the season for everyone but Missoula. Final day today followed by a couple of playoff bound teams.

Snake Stars

3 Stars: Zach Esquerra, Hillsboro 3 for 5, 2 R, 1 DBL, 2 HR (8), 5 RBI
2 Stars: Alfredo Marte, Reno 2 for 5, 2 R, 1 HR (7), 5 RBI
1 Star: Robert Coe, South Bend 6 IP, 3 H, 3 BB, 8 K, 1 ER
0 Stars: Jose Queliz, Missoula 0 for 4, 3 K

Triple A: Reno 10 @ Salt Lake 7. Nate Adcock got bounced around as the starter but the offense overcame it with a 10-run outburst. Alfredo Marte hit a 3-run homer and had 5 RBI, and Chris Owings had 2 doubles and 2 RBI to lead the way.

Double A: Mobile 1 Pensacola 5. David Holmberg made his first start since his spot outing for the Dbacks and was pretty so-so. He pitched 5 innings allowing 3 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks with just 1 strikeout. The offense did little to bail him out with just 1 run on 6 hits, the lone run coming on a Dustin Martin solo home run.

High A: Visalia 2 Bakersfield 8. Keith Hessler had another shaky start allowing 5 runs over 6 innings. The offense produced 5 hits. End of story.

Low A: South Bend 2 @ Dayton 3. Robert Coe had a good start and left the game after 6 innings tied at 1-1. But an Andrew Velazquez error led to 2 runs off Kyle Winkler that made him a loser. Three hits was all the Silver Hawks could muster with Michael Lang hitting a solo home run.

Short Season A: Hillsboro 14 @ Boise 3. A rare offensive explosion by the Hops made a solid outing from Austin Platt hold up. Platt went 6 innings allowing 3 runs. Zach Esquerra was the big star with 2 home runs and 5 RBI. He's looking like a nice find in the draft and if he can cut down his strikeouts a little he really showed some serious pop. he has 8 homers and 33 RBI in 45 games in a league with a lot of good young college pitching.

Rookie: Missoula 5 Great Falls 6. Anderson Placido was pretty good on the mound allowing 2 runs on 4 hits with 6 strikeouts over 5 innings. Sean Furney wasn't so good in relief in his first appearance outside of the AZ Rookie League and he took the loss. Stryker Trahan went 2 for 4 and hit a solo home run in the 9th inning, his 9th of the year.
