Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 6/21: Archie Starts Rehab

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Archie Bradley made his first rehab start since going on the DL back in late April for the AZL Dbacks. He allowed 2 runs over 4 innings on 5 hits and a walk while striking out 6. Nothing earth-shattering there considering the level of competition but it's just good to see him on the mound. In the first he struck out the leadoff batter, allowed a single, struck out the next batter then surrendered an RBI double. In the third the leadoff hitter tripled and later scored on a single. Sounds like he did give up a few hard-hit balls but considering he hasn't pitched in a real game for around 2 months it's a start.

AAA: Reno 6 Colorado Springs 5. The Aces got a walk-off win in the bottom of the 12th inning on a Nick Ahmed 2-out RBI single. Lucas Harrell started allowing 5 runs on 9 hits in 5+ innings. The bullpen kept things right there with 6 shutout innings to set up the heroics. Recently-signed Argenis Diaz went 3 for 5. Bobby Wilson went 2 for 4 with a home run, Alfredo Marte had 2 doubles, and Tony Campana had a triple and 3 RBI.

AA: Mobile 0 @ Montgomery 1. Charles Brewer had yet another fine start at AA allowing 1 run on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 6. But there was no offense to be found as Montgomery starter Victor Mateo shut down the Bay Bear offense on 4 hits. Mobile put runners on first and third with nobody out in the 9th but Tom Belza was thrown out at the plate on a Dustin Martin groundout, followed by strikeouts of Jon Griffin and Garrett Webber.

A+: Visalia 10 San Jose 2. Aaron Blair had a dominating performance striking out 9 over 7 innings while allowing just a single run on 3 hits. The offense was right in step scoring 3 runs in the first inning featuring an Alex Glenn 2-run homer and they were never threatened from there. Steve McQuail had a big game going 4 for 5 with a double, a home run and 3 RBI. Brandon Drury and Rudy Flores each went 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI.

A: South Bend 4 @ Lake County 5. South Bend did well to erase a 4-1 deficit on a 3-run homer by Breland Almadova. But they eventually went down in 11 innings. Blake Perry was not too good allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks over 5 innings. The bullpen was fantastic tossing 5 shutout innings until Bud Jeter was tagged for the game-winner in the 11th. Marty Herum went 2 for 5 and Andrew Velazquez was given the night off, though he did pinch run and stole his 24th base.

A-: Hillsboro 2 Vancouver 3. Hillsboro tried to rally from a late 3-0 deficit when the first three batters in the 9th singled. But 2 runs were all they could manage in the close loss. Fourth round draft pick Brent Jones started and was very good allowing 1 run over 4 innings on 3 hits while striking out 4. Reliever Nick Baker (29th round) was even better with 4 shutout innings. Reliever Jake Roberts was not so good allowing 2 runs in the top of the 9th. Nate Robertson and Todd Glaesmann led the meager offense with 2 hits each.

R: Missoula 6 Helena 9. Starter Gabriel Moya dug a hole for the Osprey offense when he allowed 6 runs in less than 5 innings. They battled all the way back with 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th on a Breland Amadova 3-run homer, only to have Brody Greer surrender 3 runs in the top of the 9th with the help of a Dane McFarland error. Sergio Alcantara had a nice game going 3 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI. Third round pick Matt Railey went 2 for 4 and hit his first home run as a professional.

AZL: Dbacks 10 @ Cubs 9. The Dbacks won a wild one when Henry Castillo tripled home Jose Herrera in the top of the 9th for the game winner. Archie Bradley made his first rehab start and was okay allowing 2 runs over 4 innings. Rodrigo Takahashi and Luis Castillo were not so good allowing a 5-spot in the 5th after the Dbacks had scored 7 in the top of the inning. Catching prospect Jose Herrera went 2 for 4 with an RBI while Luis Veras, Gerard Hernandez, Raul Santana and Jacob Cordero each contributed 2 hits. Rising prospect Joe Munoz also made a rehab start since being out for the past month.
