Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 14th

The Diamondbacks' farm teams were outscored 23-29 as they won two of the five contests taking place today - South Bend were swept in their double-header. Reno joined the D-backs in a one-run win, while Mobile blanked their opponents.

Co-Snakelets of the Day:
Patrick Corbin (Double-A): 6 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K
Matt Helm (A-ball): 5-for-6, 3 2B, 2 R

Triple-A: Reno 6, Iowa 5. Probably couldn't expect too much in the way of pitching tonight a) because it's Reno, and b) the wind was reported as "25 mph, Out to RF." And Matt Torra struggled, giving up ten hits and five runs in five innings of work, dropping the Aces into a 5-2 hole. However, Reno fought their way back, taking full advantage of five walks issued by Iowa in the seventh to score four runs. CF Evan Frey drew three walks while LF Wily Mo Pena had two hits, a walk and drove in three runs - each man also stole a base. Kyler Newby got the W for two zeroes in relief, and Kam Mickolio picked up the save with a perfect ninth.

Double-A: Mobile 8, Carolina 0. In the middle of the seventh, this was like the D-backs game, as the BayBears were just 2-0 up, both runs being unearned. However, Mobile then blew it open, scoring five runs without making an out, highlighted by Your Daily Goldschmidt, with a grand-slam; he had another hit and drove in five. Ryan Wheeler homered right behind him, and also got a pair of knocks, with three RBI, and 2B Jacob Ellmore got two hits. Patrick Corbin pitched an excellent game, throwing six shutout innings, scattering six hits (all singles) and with a perky K:BB ratio of 10:1. Bryan Woodall completed the seven-hitter with three more zeroes for Mobile.

High-A: Visalia 6 Inland Empire 10. The Rawhide leaped out in front, scoring four times in the top of the fourth, and were still 6-2 up as late as the middle of the fifth. However, they couldn't hold on, in a mistake-strewn game where each side was charged with three errors. Trevor Harden allowed five runs in five innings, on five hits and three walks, but Adam Worthington was the villain, giving up three hits and two walks while pitching a four-run eighth for the 66ers. CF Adam Eaton went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles, and C Rossmel Perez and RF Ryan LaPensee enjoyed two-hit nights, the latter making his Visalia debut.

A-ball: South Bend 3/0 @ Bowling Green 8/6. The Silver Hawks dropped the opener of the double-header. Bradin Hagens getting smoked for six runs on eight hits and a walk in three innings. DH Matt Helm got three doubles and scored two runs; 3B Zach Walters got two hits, and 2B Michael Freeman doubled and walked. The night-cap went even worse for South Bend, as they were shut-out on three hits (two for Helm) and a walk, fanning ten times in seven innings. Enrique Burgos allowed all six Hot Rods runs, but Daniel Taylor pitched well after him, throwing 3.1 shutout frames, on just two hits, with no walks, striking out three.
