Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 10th

No audio clips from tonight at time of writing - I'll post those in the morning, if they appear. Instead, let's look at the Diamondbacks' farm teams, who followed the major-league side in producing a series of strong pitching performances. Like the big-league club, they held the opposition to one run, in four of the five contests - however, unlike the big-league club, they won all four. They couldn't quite complete the sweep, but still handily outscored the opposition, 23-9.

Snakelet of the Day:
Kevin Mulvey (Triple-A): 6.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

Triple-A: Reno 5, Omaha 1. Keving Mulvey pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, picking up his second win of the season. He threw 6.2 innings, allowing five hits and three walks, striking out five. Daniel Stange was tagged for a run in the eighth, but Jason Urquidez finished things off with a perfect ninth. At the plate, CF Collin Cowgill had two hits and a walk, and RF 'Free' Cole Gillespie reached base three times, on a hit and two walks. C Konrad Schmidt added a couple of knocks too, as the Aces scored two in the third and two in the fourth, controlling the game from there.

Double-A: Mobile 10 @ Jacksonville 1. Jarrod Parker continued to get back on track, allowing only an unearned run in five innings, on three hits and two walks. He fanned four, and after allowing 16 earned runs in his first three starts, has allowed three over the last trio, covering 16 innings. Clay Zavada worked two scoreless, before Ryan Cook + Bryan Woodall completed the three-hitter. 3B Ryan Wheeler had three hits, including a homer, and drove in three; CF Ollie Linton reached three times, and there were two-hit nights for LF Marc Krauss and C Ed Easley. Your Daily Goldschmidt. A relatively quiet day for Paul, who went 1-for-5.

High-A: Visalia 2, Bakersfield 1. Tyler Skaggs threw seven strong innings, scattering five hits and a walk, fanning eight Blaze batters, and reducing his ERA to 3.46. Diogenes Rosario got the W for his two perfect innings of relief, as Matt Davidson drove in the winning run with no outs in the ninth. He was responsible for both Rawhide runs, having homered in the second frame, his fifth of the year, and also got the sole Visalia walk. There were two-hit nights for CF Adam Eaton, hitting .345 for the year, and LF Keon Broxton, batting .324 over ten games since his promotion from South Bend.

A-ball: South Bend 6/0 @ West Michigan 1/5. The Silver Hawks split a double-header with the Whitecaps. They almost blanked West Michigan in the opener, J.R. Bradley getting his first win of the year, with six innings of eight-hit ball - he walked none and struck out three. CF Ender Inciarte had three hits, scored two runs and is hitting .472, while 1B Yazy Arbelo drove in three with his ninth homer, and drew two walks. However, the boot was on the other foot in the night-cap, as South Bend were shut-out on three hits and a walk - two of the hits went to C Raywill Gomez. Dan Taylor took the loss, allowing five runs, four earned, in four-plus innings.
