Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 14th

No game for the Diamondbacks, but the farm teams were all in action. Truly something for everyone in our system today, with the results ranging from a 31-run slugfest to a combined one-hitter, with not one, but two games ending in a score of 1-0.

Snakelet of the Day:
Patrick Schuster (A): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Triple-A: Reno 13, Colorado Springs 18. Ah, this is what baseball at 6,500 feet should be like. The sides combined for 31 runs on 36 hits, seven walks and six errors, and the Aces saw a 9-2 fourth-inning lead evaporate in half a frame. Kevin Mulvey allowed ten runs in five innings; Ron Mahay four in two, and Daniel Stange four in his single inning. SS Cody Random had a homer and two doubles, driving in three, while there CF Collin Cowgill and RF Dave Winfree got three hits. 3B Andy Tracy reached base four times, with two hits and two walks; he and LF Wily Mo Peña joined Ransom in homering. PH Tony Abreu extended his hitting streak to seven games and is batting .423.

Double-A: Mobile 1, Mississippi 0. Bryan Henry and a trio of three BayBears relievers combined to one-hit the Braves. And it was a good thing they did, as Paul Goldschmidt's home-run with two outs in the first - his fifth of the year - was not just the sole run of the game, it was one of just three hits Mobile managed. Henry worked five innings, with a lead-off single in the fifth the only hit off Mobile pitching. He walked two and struck out three. Josh Ellis, Leyson Septimo (two innings) and Ryan Cook completed the one-hitter; thanks to a pick-off and double-play, only two Braves over the minimum came to the plate,

High-A: Visalia 3, San Jose 2. In the only "normal" score of the day, the Rawhide edged the Giants, behind Chase Anderson's start - he allowed one unearned run in seven innings, on three hits and no walks. Anderson finished with an impressive ten strikeouts, including four of the last five batters faced, so he ended the night strongly. Yonata Ortega worked a scoreless ninth for his first save of 2011. SS Chris Owings got three of Visalia's 11 hits, while CF Adam Eaton got two hits and a walk (raising his season average thus far to .433) and C Rosmel Perez a pair of hits. 

A-ball: South Bend 0, Lansing 1. Each starting pitcher worked seven scoreless innings, but it was the Silver Hawks who blinked in this pitchers' duel, as Dan Taylor allowed the game's only run in the eighth. That spoiled an excellent outing by Patrick Schuster, who allowed the Lugnuts only four base-runners in seven frames, on two hits and two walks, escaping Lansing's only real threat by getting a bases-loaded double-play in the third. South Bend's best chance came in the sixth, when they had a runner thrown out at the plate. Catcher Raywilly Gomez had two of the Silver Hawks' four hits
