A little late, here's yesterday's round-up. The Diamondbacks' affiliates split the four games played on Friday, though one feels they could have done better, Reno blowing a game in the ninth, and Visalia going down by one run. We outscored the opposition 23-18 in total.

Snakelet of the Day:
Raywilly Gomez (A-Ball): 3-for-5, 3 RBI,

Triple-A: Reno 6, Tacoma 9. Rafael Rodriguez threw a wretched ninth inning, allowing the Rainiers to score four runs and snatch victory over the aces. His outing included four hits, a walk and two wild pitches.  That undid a strong early effort from the Reno offense, who had scored six runs by the end of the fourth. CF Collin Cowgill reached safely four times, on three hits and a walk, while there were three-hit games for both our middle-infielders, 2B Tony Abreu and SS Cody Ransom, while 1B Brandon Allen drew a walk and got two hits. Micah Owings started for the Aces and struck out eight in six innings, but allowed four runs on six hits, mostly due to a three-run homer.

Double-A: Mobile 8, Birmingham 1. And exhale... For Jarrod Parker finally had a decent outing, throwing five innings and allowing only one run. He scattered five hits and walked three, but struck out six. The only damage was a solo homer with one out in the first. 3B Ryan Wheeled drove in two runs with a pair of hits, and RF Mark Krauss homered in the ninth, his second of the year. Billy Spottiswood threw two perfect inning in relief,, with Clay Zavada and Bryan Woodall also posting zeroes for the BayBears. rYour daily Goldschmidt. Paul went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk and a run batted in.

High-A: Visalia 4, Modesto 5. The Rawhide had a 4-1 lead after five, but couldn't hold on, as the Nuts scored a couple in the sicth to chase starter Tyler Skaggs, and then took the lead with two more in the eighth, against relievers Victor Capellan and Christian Beltre. Skaggs scattered seven hits and two walks in 5.2 innings, allowing three runs, two earned. However, he fanned 11, giving him an impressive 40 in just 26 innings - that is the most, by nine, in the California League, and more than twice as many as any team-mate. 2B David Nick had two hits and a walk; 3B Bobby Borchering reached three times, on a hit and a pair of free passes. 

A-ball: South Bend 5, Lake County 3. Silver Hawks catcher Raywilly Gomez proved extremely solid in the clutch, driving in runs from second on three separate occasions, and was largely responsible for the win over the Captains. 3B Matt Helm scored two runs, getting on-base four times with a double and three walks, and LF Bobby Stone was 2-for-4 with a RBI double. Silver Hawks' starter Bradin Hagens threw 46 pitches through two, but manages to get into the sixth, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks.
