Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 15th

The departure of Josh Collmenter left a hole in the Aces rotation, but they managed to get through the game and take the victory - the opposing pitcher there was someone who started for the Diamondbacks major-league team last year. Details of that, and the other minor-league action, after the jump:

Snakelet of the Day:
Josh Wilson (AAA): 2-for-4, 3B, 3 RBI

Triple-A: Reno 9, Colorado Springs 6. Billy Buckner got the start for the Sky Sox but didn't factor into the decision, despite giving up six runs in five frames, on ten hits. The Aces having lost their expected starter, they had to cobble things together tonight. Kyler Newby allowed two runs in four innings, newly-demoted Kam Mickolio gave up two home-runs in his inning of work, but the rest of the pen were mostly solid. Jordan Norberto worked 1.1 innings for the W, and Rafael Rodriguez had a scoreless ninth. 2B Tony Abreu, 1B Brandon Allen, C Konrad Schmift and SS Josh Wilson each had two hits for Reno; Schmidt had the go-ahead double in the eighth. 

Double-A: Mobile 3, Mississippi 2. A single by SS Mark Hallberg with two outs in the eighth, with the aid of an error by the Braves, allowed the BayBears to score the go-ahead run and push their record to an impressive 7-1. Charles Brewer had a decent start, scattering eight hits and two walks over five innings, but holding Mississippi to just two runs. Billy Spottiswood (two innings), and the late-inning Bryans of Woodall and Shaw, kept them there the rest of the way, Shaw notching his third save. Hallberg and LF Ollie Linton got two hits apiece,

High-A: Visalia 0, San Jose 16. Ouch. Yes, you read that right. The Rawhide suffered one hell of a pasting at the hands of the Giants. It was scoreless at the end of the first, and pretty much went downhill from there, as San Jose scored three in the second, six in the third, and more crooked numbers in the fourth, fifth and sixth. Eric Smith had another brutal start, and has now allowed sixteen earned runs in just 6.1 innings, on twenty-five hits. RF Kyle Greene and 3B Matthew Davidson each got two hits, but the Rawhide were hitless with RISP and failed to trouble the scorers.

A-ball: South Bend vs West Michigan.  Friday evening's home game against the West Michigan Whitecaps was postponed due to rain. There will be a doubleheader on Saturday, beginning at 4:30 PM local time.
