Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 22

The Diamondbacks' farm teams went three-for-three in victories today, with one game postponed. Though it was close, because two of those were not just one-run wins, but were walk-off ones - both by the same score, 6-5. The overall margin on the day: 17-13.

Snakelet of the Day:
Jacob Elmore (Double-A): 3-for-4, RBI, 2B, SB: .406 avg

Triple-A: Reno 6, Sacramento 5. Having blown a lead last night, it's only fair that the Aces should stage a comeback win this evening, scoring four runs in the ninth, without making an out. C John Hester had the walk-off hit, doubling in both the tying and winning runs for the Aces. That made an unexpected winner out of Jason Urquidez, for his 1.2 feames of scoreless relief - Matt Torra (5 IP, 4 ER on 9 H and 3 BB) had started for Reno. The Aces had managed only four hits over the front eight innings - Hester had one of those, while CF Cole Gillespie and 3B Cody Ransom each got a hit and walk in the game.

Double-A: Mobile 5, Jacksonville 3. Jarrod Parker had a somewhat better outing this time, allowing two earned runs (plus one unearned) over five innings, on three hits and three walks. Parker also struck out four Suns' batters. It was enough to get him the victory, as the BayBears got on the board first, scoring three in the bottom of the second. CF A.J. Pollock had the key knock, clearing the bases with a two out, three-run double, and Mobile held on from there. 2B Jacob Elmore enjoyed a three-hit night, while word is clearly getting round about 1B Paul Goldschmift, who was walked three times, and also stole a base. His K:BB ratio is now 10:15

High-A: Visalia 6, San Jose 5. The Rawhide almost blew it, coughing up a five-run lead to the Giants, but managed to escape, scratching the winning run across with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Trevor Harden took a shutout into the fifth, and finally left with a quality start: three runs over six innings, on five hits and four walks, with four strikeouts. 1B Matt Davidson and RF Kyle Greene both had two-hits nights, and each drove in a pair of runs for Visalia. 3B Bobby Borchering and C Mark Reed also got two knocks. Every Rawhide batter struck out at least once, and the K:BB ratio was 11:0. I guess nobody walks out of High-A either. :-)

A-ball: South Bend vs. Fort Wayne. Friday's scheduled game between the South Bend Silver Hawks and Fort Wayne TinCaps has been postponed due to thunderstorms in the South Bend area. The game has been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Saturday, with seven innings per game.
