Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 28th

Reno came back from 9-4 down, eventually winning by the odd run in twenty-five, and were responsible for more than half the runs both scored and allowed by our minor-league teams today. The Diamondbacks' affiliates took three of four, and outscored the opposition 25-22.

Snakelet of the Day:
Collin Cowgill (Triple-A): 4-for-7, two HR, 3 RBI, 4 R

Triple-A: Reno 13, Tacoma 12. The two sides combined for 35 hits, 10 walks and three errors, climaxing with Dave Winfree smacking a walk-off blast with two outs in the bottom of the 12th, to give the Aces victory. It was their sixth long ball of the night: CF Collin Cowgill had two as part of his four-hit night, and there were also homers for DH Wily Mo Pena, 1B Brandon Allen and SS Cody Random, while Ransom, Winfree and LF Cole Gillespie had three hits apiece. For obvious reasons, we should likely draw a veil over much of the pitching, but Daniel Stange and Jason Urquidez pitched well in relief, each posting two perfect innings.

Double-A: Mobile 3, Birmingham 5. The BayBears couldn't hold the Barons, despite Patrick Corbin pitching seven innings. He gave up a couple of runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings, and a total of seven hits, though with no walks and six strikeouts. The Mobile offense was largely kept in check, managing only one extra-base hit, and with a K:BB ratio of 9:3. LF Ollie Linton got three hits and a walk. Despite the loss, Mobile still has a record of 12-7, 1 1/2 back of the leaders. Your Daily Goldschmidt. 1B Paul Goldschmidt got two hits, including that extra-base knock, a double which drove in a run, and also walked.

High-A: Visalia 4, Bakersfield 1. Trevor Harden had the best pitching performance of the night, shutting out the Blaze for seven innings on three hits and four walks, albeit with only one strikeout. It was an offensively quiet night, though a wild one, as the sides combined for only ten hits, but eleven walks. C Mark Reed enjoyed a two-hit game, and SS Chris Owings reached safely twice, on a hit and a walk. Christopher Odegaard struggled in the ninth, pushing a run across and loading the bases, to put the winning run at the plate for Bakersfield, but lefty Taylor Sinclair got the final out, improving Visalia's record to 9-12.

A-ball: South Bend 5, Lake County 4. DH Ramon Castillo hit a solo home in the top of the ninth inning, to give the Silver Hawks the win over the Captains. It was his second home-run of the year, and bookended the one hit  by 1B Yazy Arbelo, a two-run shot as part of a three-run first for South Bend. However, Patrick Schuster had a mediocre outing, allowing four runs in five innings, on seven hits and three walks. He was bailed out by four shutout frames from the Silver Hawks bullpen: Mike Bolsinger got the W for 1.2 innings of scoreless relief, and Blake Cooper got the save with a perfect ninth, including two K's.
