Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 24th

No sign of any SnakeSounds thus far, and just a short recap today, with only two Diamondbacks' affiliates in play because of Easter Sunday. And it seemed like our starting pitchers took the day off, with the men concerned serving up an all-you-can-eat buffet of runs to the opposition. The duo of Kevin Mulvey and Bryan Henry gave up twenty earned runs in total, and will not be on the (very short) list of candidates for...

Snakelet of the Day:
Ed Easley (Double-A): 3-for-4, HR, R, RBI

Triple-A: Reno 5, Fresno 12. Kevin Mulvey isn't exactly making a case for promotion from Triple-A. In four starts, he has worked 18 innings, and been tagged for thirty ER on 38 hits and eight walks. This was his worst to date, as the Grizzlies teed off: eleven hits, two walks and ten runs, all earned. He wasn't helped by Tom Layne allowed all three inherited runners to score, adding two more of his own in 2.2 relief frames; Ron Mahay worked a scoreless eighth to be the only pitcher escaping without damage. CF Collin Cowgill had a homer and a triple, and 2B Cody Ransom had a three-run homer in the sixth.

Double-A: Mobile 3, Jackson 15. That'll leave a mark. The BayBears found nothing in their Easter basket from the Jackson Generals, who pounded nineteen hits in six innings off starter Bryan Henry and Brad Wilson before Billy Spottiswood finally restored order with two hitless frames. Henry was the second prospect today to be pounded for ten earned runs, here in four innings, on 12 hits and three walks, with four home-runs allowed. Every General reached safely at least twice. For Mobile, C Ed Easley went 3-for-4 with a homer, while CF A.J. Pollock got two hits and a walk, and 1B Paul Goldschmidt also had two knocks, driving in the BayBears' other run.
