Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 18th

Okay, so looks like I'm still doing these. :-) Slightly delayed, here are the results from last night among the Diamondbacks' affiliates. There was an even split of the four games, with the successes both coming at the higher levels. Overall, our farm teams were outscored 21-23 on the night.

Snakelet of the Day:
Cole Gillespie (Triple-A): 2-for-3, 2B, 3B, 2 BB, 3 R

Triple-A: Reno 10, Colorado Springs 6. The Aces jumped out early, scoring four in the first and two more in the second, disposing of the Sky Sox started before he could get through the latter frame. CF Cole Gillespie reached four times, on a pair of extra-base hits and two walks, and came round to score three runs, while 3B Sean Burroughs had two hits and a walk, and SS Cody Ransom drove in three runs. Reno enjoyed five solid innings from Micah Owings - he gave up two runs on five hits and three walks, with three strikeouts - and Jordan Norberto threw a pair of hitless innings, striking out two. 

Double-A: Mobile 4, Jacksonville 2. Wes Roemer picked up his second win with a seven-inning outing against the Suns: he scattered three hits and a walk, with six strikeouts, resulting in two runs, both earned. The BayBears came from behind, scoring three runs in the sixth to take the lead for good, when SS Taylor Harbin knocked a full-count fastball over the left-field fence with two men on. Harbin, 2B Jacob Elmore and C Josh Ford each enjoyed two hit nights for Mobile. Bryan Woodall worked both the eighth and ninth innings to pick up his first save, with three strikeouts, one hit and a walk.

High-A: Visalia 3, Stockton 6. Tyler Skaggs made his third start for the Rawhide, and the patter was much the same as previously. While there's no denying his raw 'stuff' - he has struck out 21 in only 15.1 innings - he is still a work in progress, having walked 11  This time, he worked 5.1 innings, with a K:BB ratio of 8:4. but a three-run homer in the fourth was all but one of the runs allowed. Rehabbing A's starter Michael Wuertz lasted one inning, but the Rawhide probably wish he'd stayed as his replacement pitched five shutout frames, fanning nine. CF Adam Eaton and LF Justin Hilt each got two hits and a walk for Visalia.

A-ball: South Bend 4, Great Lakes 9. The Silver Hawks dropped their fourth match-up in a row, and are now 2-9 on the season. They were 7-0 down by the end of the second, with David Holmberg apparently struggling on a cold night - the game-time temperature was just 37 degrees. He ended up working through four innings, giving up all seven runs on eight hits and two walks, with five K's. 3B Matt Helm had three hits, with 1B Yazy Arbelo and LF Roberto Rodriguez each picking up a pair of knocks and a base on balls.
