Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 23rd

New, comments

24-20 was the overall tally on Saturday, as the Diamondbacks' farm teams won three of the five contests which took place. Some guy in Double-A homered. [Yawn]

Snakelet of the Day:
Matthew Davidson (High-A): 4-for-4, two 2B

Triple-A: Reno 9, Fresno 2. After allowing a two-run homer to recently-demoted Giants' prospect Brandon Belt in the first, Micah Owings settled down admirably, posting zeroes from there through the end of the sixth. He gave up just four hits and no walks, fanning four. The Aces offense did little better against the Grizzlies' starter, and the two teams combined for nine hits through seven. However, Reno blew things open with two in the eighth and four in the ninth. SS Josh Wilson and LF Dave Winfree both contributed two hits and three RBI, while 1B Brandon Allen and C Konrad Schmidt reached base three times apiece, on a hit and two walks.

Double-A: Mobile 8, Jackson 4. Plenty of offense for the BayBears, as seven different players enjoyed a multi-hit game - and one of those who didn't, RF Evan Frey, walked three times. 3B Ryan Wheeler got three hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in two, which CF A.J. Pollock also had two doubles and two RBI. Wes Roemer pitched well, giving up two runs over six innings, on eight hits and a walk, striking out three. Clay Zavada allowed a run in the seventh, but struck out two. Oh, and something Paul Goldschmidt something something homer - his ninth in 16 games. He also doubled, and if my math is correct, his slugging percentage is now at .870

High-A: Visalia 3, San Jose 10. After the first inning, the Rawhide had leaped out to a three-run lead, but as the final score tells you, that was as good as it got. Tyler Skaggs continued to have the kind of start he has been having: lots of K's (eight in five innings, giving him 29 in 20.1 IP), but too many baserunners (six hits and three walks). The result was five runs, four earned, but three of those came in one Giant(s) blow in the fourth. 1B Matt Davidson had four of Visalia's nine hits, including a pair of doubles, and 3B Bobby Borchering drove in two runs with a double in that first inning. The Rawhide should have quite while they were ahead.

A-ball: South Bend 4/0, Fort Wayne 2/2. The Silver Hawks split the double-header against the Tincaps. In the opener, 3B Zach Walter homered and tripled, driving in two, and 1B Yazy Arbelo also went deep. Bradin Hagens got the win with six innings of two-run ball, on four hits and two walks, with five K's. Blake Cooper threw a perfect seventh for the save. The second game was a 1:48 affair, with South Bend sending only two batters over the minimum to the plate. J.R. Bradley gave up only one earned run, and one unearned, over 5.2 innings,scattering eight hits and two walks, but still got the loss.
