Dbacks MiLB Round-Up, 5/27: Release the bats!

Bob Levey

The four farm teams in the D-backs system had an offensive explosion tonight, scoring a total of 42 runs, with three of them reaching double figures.

Lucas Harrell was traded from the Astros to the Diamondbacks a month ago today, for a PTBNL or cash considerations. He actually has a fair bit of major league experience, having made 62 starts for the White Sox and Astros, but an 85 ERA+ is why he has bounced around - that an a K:BB ratio of only 1.34. It has been much the same in his time with Reno. Some of his starts have been very solid, but a K:BB ratio of 22:18 indicates problems putting it together consistently. Still, tonight, Harrell did his part in helping the Aces to their biggest home win of the season so far.

Triple-A Reno 13, Fresno 0. The Aces posted another shutout and this one was just a little easier than yesterday's 1-0 win. Reno hammered out 19 hits, with SS Nick Ahmed and CF Tony Campana getting three apiece. 1B Mike Jacobs and C Bobby Wilson each got two hits and a walk, Jacobs getting his 10th home-run and LF Danny Dorn notching his first. But the pitching was even better, Lucas Harrell throwing seven shutout inning of three-hit ball, walking two and striking out seven, before Mark Serrano and Justin van Grouw completed the four-hitter. The Aces improved to 30-22, but stay two behind Sacramento, who have won seven straight.

Double-A: Mobile 4, Jackson 5 (12). The BayBears had their chances, but couldn't seal the deal. First, they allowed the Generals to tie the game in the ninth, Jimmie Sherfy blowing his second save, and then a two-homer in the 12th inning off Kaleb Fleck gave the visitors victory. Starter A.J. Schugel continued to struggle with his control, walking five in four innings for the second start, allowing three runs on four hits with a pair of strikeouts. LF Dustin Martin finished a triple short of the cycle, driving in two runs and also walking - the homer was his first. 3B Jake Lamb also went deep, for the 7th time this season. SS Sean Jamieson had two hits and a walk.

High-A Visalia 11, Bakersfield 9. The sides combined for a staggering 33 hits and 15 walks here, the Blaze leaving an astonishing 19 men on base! We'll draw a veil over the Visalia pitching, except to say it happened. J.R. Bradley got the win for a scoreless eighth, striking out the side round a pair of walks, and the Rawhide hurlers did combine for 15 K's. But the hitters did well, LF Alex Glenn also finishing a triple short of the cycle, including his 11th HR. RF Socrates Brito reached base four times, on three hits and a walk, though was also caught stealing, and 3B Brandon Druty had a pair of knocks, with his 11th HR as well.The game took four minutes short of four hours.

A South Bend 14, Lansing 4. The Silver Hawks topped them all, with 21 hits, highlighted by a seven-run fifth inning. 1B Steve McQuail led the way with four hits, two of them doubles, and four RBI, but it says something about today's offensive explosion he doesn't even get a star! CF Breland Almadova also got four hits, 2B Jamie Westbrook had three hits, three runs and three RBI, and SS Andrew Velazquez had three hits and stole his 12th base. 3B Marty Herum got his 1st HR. Starter Blake Perry cruised through six innings of two-run ball, on four hits and four walks, with seven strikeouts.
