Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 16

The Aces offense continued to be on fire against the Sky Sox, even if they're no longer at altitude. In six games against them this week, Reno has scored a total of 64 runs. They rolled to another easy victory last night, moving their record to a Pacific Coast League best 7-2. 

Snakelet of the Day:
Tony Abreu (Triple-A): 3-for-4, HR, 2 RBI, .457 avg.

Triple-A: Reno 15, Colorado Spings 2. While playing the Sky Sox this week, the Aces have never being held to less than seven run. Last night, they scored more than that in one inning: in an eight-run fifth, RF Dave Winfree hit a grand slam and 1B Andy Tracy added a two-run homer. Zach Kroenke scattered six hits over seven innings, allowing two earned runs, but it was the offense that stood out. As well as 2B Abreu's three hits, Tracy added a double and drove in four, while LF Wily Mo Peña, 3B Cody Ransom and SS Josh Wilson each picked up a pair of hits and added a base on balls, as Reno totaled 15 hits, going 7-for-17 with RISP. 

Double-A: Mobile 3, Mississippi 4. This game was tied going into the ninth inning, but the Braves scored twice, and the BayBears could only pull one back in the bottom half - annoying, the second Mississipi run came across on an error by 3B Ryan Wheeler. 1B Paul Goldschmidt extended his hitting streak to six games, and has reached safely twice or more in each contest. LF Marc Krauss and 2B Mark Hallberg joined him there last night, each posting a hit and a walk. Patrick Corbin pitched well for the BayBears, his six-inning stint resulting in two runs on six hits and a walk, with three strikeouts.

High-A: Visalia 2, San Jose 5. After the 0-16 drubbing the previous night, the Rawhide came a lot closer, but the end result was the same. Former Snakelet of the Day Derek Eitel's second start wasn't as successful as his first, as he allowed 10 hits and three walks without completing five innings; all but one of the five runs allowed were earned. Lefty Taylor Sinclair struck out four in 2.1 scoreless relief frames. RF Kyle Greene and C Rosmel Perez each got a pair of hits for Visalia, the latter being credited with their sole RBI of the evening. LF Justin Hilt got on base three times, with a hit and two walks. 

A-ball: South Bend vs West Michigan. No better luck with the weather on Saturday, as the planned double-header was canceled due to more rain. They'll try to get two games in today, and they've got the first one under way, so fingers crossed for that.
