Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 26th

All three farm affiliates who saw action tonight saw their games decided by a single run. The Diamondbacks' teams came out on top in only one of them, but with the overall run tally for the day 15-16, it wasn't a disaster.

Snakelet of the Day:
Cody Ransom (Triple-A): 3-for-4, two 2B, HR, BB, RBI, R

Triple-A: Reno 6, Fresno 5. Zach Kroenke improved to 3-0 on the year, allowing three runs (one unearned) over five innings, on eight hits and two walks, with three strikeouts. He got early run support, as the Aces scored four in the fourth, to break open a 2-2 game: SS Cody Ransom led the way with three extra-base hits, including his fifth HR of the year. The Grizzlies clawed their way back, though Kam Mickolio posted zeroes in the seventh and eighth. Rafael Rodriguez walked three in the ninth, but with the tying run on third, fanned Brandon Belt and Ryan Rohlinger to preserve victory. RF Cole Gillespie had two hits and a walk, while 2B Tony Abreu got two knocks and drove in two.

Double-A: Mobile vs. Jacksonville postponed. The two teams will play a double-header tomorrow to make this one up, starting at 11:05 am local time. Now, that's real morning baseball...

High-A: Visalia 5, Bakersfield 6. The Rawhide scored two in the ninth to knot this one at five, but Kevin Munson couldn't hold it, and the Blaze pushed across the winning run with two outs, on their third hit of the inning. Eric Smith gave Visalia a quality start, working six innings and giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks, with four strikeouts. 3B Matt Davison reached three times, with two hits and a walk, driving in two runs; 2B David Nick followed suit in the hits and RBI department, and C Rossmel Perez had his fifth multi-hit game in the past ten, raising his season average to .367. He also has a K:BB ratio of 4:10. 

A-ball: South Bend 4, Bowling Green 5. Like Visalia, the Silver Hawks found themselves getting walked off, but this was probably more dispiriting, as they were 4-0 up after six, and still two up going into the bottom of the ninth inning. They were one strike from victory, but the Hot Rods' Luke Bailey swatted a three-run homer with two outs - Bailey had made three errors prior to his redemption. That spoiled an excellent outing by Tyler Green, who pitched five shutout frames, allowing two hits and no walks, fanning four. RF Chris Jarrett went 3-for-4, and SS Raul Navarro a couple of knocks. 3B Zach Walters drove in two, and reached three times on a hit and two walks.
