Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: April 30th

Only one victory for the farm teams today, who were outscored 16-19 - even Paul Goldschmidt didn't get a hit, and the Aces suffered a meltdown in the ninth which blew the Diamondbacks' one away. However, there were some decent individual performances to cheer, led by an excellent start for Mobile.

Snakelet of the Day:
Wes Roemer (Double-A): 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 12 K

Triple-A: Reno 9, Tacoma 11. And you thought the Diamondbacks ninth inning tonight was bad. The Aces allowed the Rainiers to score six in the ninth, turning a four-run lead into defeat. Daniel Stange allowed a hit and two walks while getting the first out, and Jordan Norberto allowed two more hits and two walks - each man was charged with three runs. Kevin Mulvey allowed nine hits and a walk in 5.2 innings, resulting in five runs, four earned. CF Collin Cowgill had another three-hit evening, his third in a row - over that time, he's 10-for-15. LF Dave Winfree drove in three runs with a homer, and is tied for the team RBI lead on 24.

Double-A: Mobile 0 @ Birmingham 1. A stellar performance from Wes Roemer, who posted seven shutout frames, and struck out a dozen Baron batters, all went for nothing, as Birmingham scored the game's only run with two outs in the ninth. Ryan Cook retired the first five he faced in relief, but a double, intentional walk and RBI single followed to lose the game for the BayBears. Roemer sailed through his appearance, with a double-play to end the sixth and strand a man on third, the only real trouble he encountered. In 32 innings, he has a K:BB ratio of 29:3. Your Daily Goldschmift. He went 0-for-3, ending his five-game hitting streak, but did draw a walk.

High-A: Visalia 6, Modesto 3. The Rawhide scored three in the fourth and three in the seventh, and that was enough to push them to victory over the Nuts. Mike Belfiore started for the home team, and struck out seven over five frames; he walked three, struck out three, and a two-run homer was the only scoring Modesto managed. Adam Worthington got the W for three innings of relief, permitting only an unearned run, and Yonata Ortega struck out two in a perfect ninth, notching his third save. 3B Bobby Borchering went 3-for-4, and the 20-year old's average is heading for respectability, now at .241. SS Chris Owings added a pair of doubles.

A-ball: South Bend 1 @ Lake County 4. The Silver Hawks found themselves on the receiving end of a three-hitter, with only 1B Yazy Arbelo's fifth home-run of the year standing between South Bend and them being shutout. That tied the game at one in the second, and it stayed that way until the Captains broke the game open with a three-run shot off Silver Hawks starter J.R.Bradley. He pitched six innings, and was tagged for all four Lake County runs, on nine hits and a walk, with just the one strikeout.. The delightfully-named Kable Hogben closed out the game, with two scoreless frames of relief.
