Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 7th

New, comments

As part of our enhanced focus on the farm system, we'll be doing a daily recap of the results from all our teams: suggestions for a cool name I can give these would be welcome. Note that this may appear in the evening, or it may go up the next morning, depending on what time the games finish and what else I'm doing. We'll also pick a player of the day from our prospects - the first honor there, goes to someone who made an impact in spring training, and has certainly continued to do so in the minor leagues. :

Snakelet of the Day:
Paul Goldschmidt (AA): 2-for-4, BB, two HR, four RBI

Triple-A. Reno's game against the Salt Lake Bees was postponed, and will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Saturday (with both games running seven innings)

Double-A. Mobile 7, Carolina 4. 1B Paul Goldschmidt homered twice in his first career Double-A game, including his debut at-bat. He had a solo shot in the first, then a go-ahead three-run blast with one out in the ninth, as the Bay Bears scored five there, on their way to beating the Mudcats. Mark Hallberg came off the bench to double in two runs and tie the game earlier in the inning, and SS Taylor Harbin went 3-for-4. Wes Roemer allowed three runs in five innings, Kyler Newby got the win for two hitless frames, and Bryan Shaw picked up the save after a scoreless ninth.

High-A. Visalia had no better luck with the rain than Reno, the Rawhide losing their home opener against Bakersfield to the weather. It's particularly unfortunate, as this game was slated to be a fundraiser for the Red Cross Japanese earthquake relief fund.

A-ball. South Bend 1, Fort Wayne 2. The Silver Hawks ran into a buzz-saw in their opener, as TinCaps starter Keyvius Sampson retired all 18 Hawks faced, ten by strikeout. Teenage lefty David Holmberg, starting for South Bend, allowed two runs over six innings, scattering eight hits and a walk with four K, and took the loss. Zachary Walters had two of our' four hits, including a two-out single in the seventh to end the perfecto. South Bend broke the shutout in the ninth and got the tying run to third, but came up just short of matching Mobile's comeback.
