Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 12th

Our Triple-A affiliate in Reno were the only ones to reproduce the offensive fireworks produced at Chase last night, clubbing the Colorado Springs Sky Sox for the second consecutive day. The Aces have outscored the opposition by a total of 20-2 over the first two games, but given the altitude of the park where they're playing, we give today's award to the starting pitcher in that contest.

Snakelet of the Day:
Micah Owings (Triple-A): 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Triple-A: Reno 11, Colorado Springs 1. The Aces enjoyed another good offensive outing, backed by five very solid innings from Micah Owings. He allowed two hits and walked no-one, with the only damage a solo homer in the second. In contrast, the Aces posted three crooked numbers in the first four frames. RF Cole Gillespie had three hits and drove in two, while there were multi-hit games for SS Tony Abreu, 1B Brandon Allen, C Konrad Schmidt and SS Josh Wilson, with the last two named homering - Wilson had three RBI. Jason Urquidez and new lefty Ron Mahay combined for four shutout innings of work. 

Double-A: Mobile - Off day.

High-A: Visalia 3, Stockton 9. Trevor Harden had a woefully wild and poor outing, walking seven in addition to six hits, in only 3.2 innings of work. He struck out four, but was tagged for six runs, all earned, as the Rawhide fell behind in the first frame, and never caught up. The wonderfully-named Diogenes Rosario was Visalia's best pitcher, striking out three in 2.1 innings of perfect relief, while 3B Matthew Davidson reached safely three times, on two singles and a walk. LF Justin Hilt and RF Kyle Greene each had a hit and a base on balls. 

A-ball: South Bend 2, Lansing 4. The Silver Hawks had a chance to take this one, but couldn't hold a 2-1 ninth inning lead, allowing three Lugnut runs to give them the victory. Walks proved lethal as Blake Cooper and Eury De La Rosa each walked two batters, to tie the game up without Lansing needing a hit. All told, South Bend allowed four walks, a wild pitch, a passed ball, and only a single. CF Keon Broxton had two hits and a walk, while starter David Holmberg allowed one earned run in five innings, on four hits and three walks, with four strikeouts.
