Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 13

Four games for the Diamondbacks' affiliates, and not a single one-run defeat to be seen. What are the odds? Our farm team split their games evenly, though Mobile will lament the one that got away. Overall, they pipped the opposition by the odd run in forty-seven; that'd be 24-23 if you're no good at math.

Snakelet of the Day:
Ollie Linton (Double-A): 3-for-6, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 R

Triple-A: Reno 7, Omaha 2. Free Wily Mo Pena! The DH hit his fourteenth homer of the season, which by my reckoning is three times as many as all the 'veteran presence' on the major-league team, combined. He ended with three hits; SS Tony Abreu and CF Evan Frey got two each, while 1B Brandon Allen and 2B Mark Hallberg reached base three time, on a hit and a couple of walks. Tom Layne had a solid outing, pitching seven innings and allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks, albeit with only one walk. Jason Urquidez closed things out from there, with a pair of scoreless frames.

Double-A: Mobile 10 @ Jacksonville 12. The BayBears lost a wild one: they blew an 8-2 lead, but took a 10-9 lead in the ninth on LF Ollie Linton's second homer of the game. Bryan Shaw then came within one strike of the save, before coughing up a three-run homer, allowing the Suns to walk off. Wade Miley was torched for nine runs in five innings, on nine hits and three walks, but Clay Zavada restored order with zeroes in the 6th and 7th, despite hitting two batters. Linto ended with three hits and three RBI; 2B Jacob Elmore got three hits too, and Taylor Harbin was on base all five times, with two hits and three walks. Your Daily Goldschmidt: 2-for-4 with two walks and a double.

High-A: Visalia 3, Bakersfield 7. The Rawhide were clinging to a one-run lead after five, but the 3-2 advantage couldn't be held, with the Blaze scoring five unanswered runs and pounding out a total of 15 hits. Derek Eitel was the main victim: in six frames, he allowed ten hits and two walks. He struck out three, and five runs, all earned, scored. Visalia were held to only three hits. RF Adam Eaton drew two walks and scored two of the Rawhide's runs. 3B Bobby Borchering got two free passes and was also hit by a pitch; DH Jon Owings had one of the hits and also got a walk.

A-ball: South Bend 4 @ Bowling Green 2. The Silver Hawks left it late, after seven innings, they were being shut-out and 2-0 down. However, they tied it in the eighth on C Ramon Castillo's two-run double, and 3B Matt Helm repeated the punishment in the top of the ninth inning, to break the tie in favor of South Bend. Patrick Schuster allowed only two hits in his seven innings of work, walking one and striking out five; he was charged with two runs, both earned. Jeremy Erben picked up the W for his two hitless innings of relief. DH Raywilly Gomez got two hits and a walk, and there were multi-hit games for 1B Yazy Arbelo, Castillo and LF Roberto Rodriguez.
