Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 8th

Reno didn't have any better luck tonight, as their second consecutive game was postponed, this time due to snow in the Salt Lake area. Seems that whoever schedules the major-league program, is equally skilled as the person in charge of the minor-league calendar. But the other three did play: Paul Goldschmidt homered again, but the best performance goes to an impressive first professional appearance for South Bend

Snakelet of the Day:
Tyler Green (A): 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Triple-A. Reno: postponed

Double-A. Mobile 5, Carolina 2. 1B Paul Goldschmidt did it again, homering with one on and one out in the first inning, to give him three home runs in his first five Double-A at-bats. RF Marc Krauss and 3B Ryan Wheeler also went deep, going back-to-back in the ninth; Wheeler and SS Taylor Hardin had two hits apiece. Bryan Henry got the W for the Bay Bears, throwing 3.2 shutout innings, on two hits, after coming on in relief of Wade Miley - Miley apparently showed some discomfort earlier in the outing. Ryan Cook got the save, fanning two in the ninth.

High-A. Visalia 1, Bakersfield 4. After a rainout last night, the Rawhide got their season under way, with Tyler Skaggs getting them under way on the mound. He gave up five hits and three walks in 4.2 innings, leading to three runs, but did strike out six. Visalia were singularly unclutch, going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position, their only run coming on a home-run from LF Jon Owings in the fourth. 1B Kyle Greene and CF Adam Eaton each picked up a couple of knocks, while catcher Rosmel Perez walked twice.

A-ball. South Bend 1, Fort Wayne 5. The Silver Hawks were held to only thee hits - the same as their number of errors - but Tyler Green kept them in the game. The eighth-round pick last season posted five straight zeroes, with only one hit and a walk allowed. Not bad for a nineteen-year old in his professional debut. Jeff Shields followed, but was less impressive, getting tagged for seven hits and five runs (four earned) in three innings. DH Matt Helm drove in South Bend's only run, giving them a brief lead with two outs in the sixth.
