Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 11th

The four Diamondbacks' affiliates combined to outscore the opposition 32-23, though more than half of the runs they produced came in one game. The four contests produced an even split.

Snakelet of the Day:
Jon Owings (High-A): 4-for-5, HR, 2B, 5 RBI, 2 R, SB

Triple-A: Reno 5, Omaha 6. Barry Enright made his first start since being sent down to Triple-A, and it was largely more of the same: up in the zone and hurt by the long ball. He walked only one in five innings, but that was followed by a double and a three-run  homer in the fifth. His final line: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K. Rafael Rodriguez allowed three runs, two earned, in his innings of work, but Kyler Newby posted zeroes in the eighth and ninth. 1B Brandon Allen and 3B Sean Burroughs each produced a triple and a single, with Allen adding a walk to that. Reno scored two in the ninth but left the tying run at third.

Double-A: Mobile 3 @ Jacksonville 8. Leyson Septimo faced seven batters in the eighth inning and failed to retire any of them - there were two hits, two walks, two HBP and one reached on an error. Six came around to score, undoing a solid start from Wes Roemer, who worked six innings, and allowed two runs on four hits, three walks and a pair of his own hit batters, he also fanned three. C Josh Ford was the only BayBears batter to reach more than once, with a hit and a walk. Your Daily Goldschmidt. Paul went 1-for-4, homering with two outs in the first. The solo shot was his thirteenth of the season.

High-A: Visalia 17, Bakersfield 8. Normally, getting four hits, with a double, homer and four RBI would put you in line for Snakelet of the Day. But SS Chris Owings was one-upped by OF Jon Owings, who did all that, plus drove in an extra run and stole a base for good measure, in one fewer plate appearance. The Rawhide set the Blaze on fire, with three-hit nights for CF Adam Eaton, 2B David Nick and 3B Matt Davidson - Eaton added a couple of walks as well. Mike Belfiore got the W, despite allowing three homers and six runs in six innings, as the two sides combined for 36 hits and a dozen walks.

A-ball: South Bend 6 @ Michigan 1.  Breakfast baseball! An 11 am start for the Silver Hawks, after a double-header the night before, but David Holmberg finally got the results his peripherals deserved. He gave up one earned run in six innings on four strikeouts and no walks. The Silver Hawks had just a single extra-base hit, a solo home run from personal favorite Zach Walters. The team managed ten hits and three walks, and jumped out to a three-run lead after the top of the first. CF Ender Inciarte, DH Zach Walters, 3B Matt Helm and C Raywilly Gomez all enjoyed multi-hit games, including a home-run from Walters.
