Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 5/3: Everyone Loses

It was a pretty humdrum night around the minors with nothing much exceptional happening other than Aaron Blair getting blasted in his South Bend start.

Snake Stars
3 Stars: Fidel Pena, Visalia 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 HR (3), 2 RBI
2 Stars: Mike Jacobs, Reno 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 HR (4), 1 RBI
1 Star: Justin Greene, Mobile 2 for 4, 2 DBL
0 Stars: Aaron Blair, South Bend 4 IP, 8 H, 4 BB, 1 K, 7 ER

Triple A: Reno 5 @ Salt Lake 6. Zeke Spruill got another start allowing 4 runs in 4 + innings. But the bigger news was Evan Marshall finally surrendered a run to end his streak of scoreless outings to start the season. He entered the game in the bottom of the 8th with the score tied at 5-5 and with 2 outs and a runner on first gave up a no-man's-land pop up behind second base that scored the runner all the way from first. Mike Jacobs paced the offense going 2 for 4 including a game-tying solo home run in the 8th. Andy Marte also went 2 for 4 with a solo home run.

Double A: Mobile 3 @ Birmingham 4. Michael Lee had a very solid start going 8 innings allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks while striking out 4. Garrett Webber tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the 9th with an RBI double. But reliever RJ Hively couldn't keep it there as he surrendered the walk-off win via a 2-out single. Webber had 2 hits on the night. Justin Greene went 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and Jake Lamb went 2 for 5 with a double.

High A: Visalia 4 @ High Desert 5. Jesse Darrah had a solid outing allowing 3 runs over 6 innings and he left the game with a 4-3 lead. Reliever John Omahen allowed single runs in the 7th and 8th to give up the lead and the offense couldn't overcome that. Fidel Pena went 2 for 4 with a home run, Socrates Brito had a pair of hits, and Evan Marzilli hit his first home run of the year.

A: South Bend 4 @ Fort Wayne 8. Aaron Blair got blasted last night allowing 8 runs (7 earned) in just 4 innings of work on 8 hits and 4 walks. He had just one strikeout. It was probably his worst start as a professional. Kyle Schepel followed with 3 shutout innings lowering his ERA to 0.64. Jamie Westbrook went 2 for 5 with 2 RBI and Joe Munoz hit a 2-run homer.
