Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 15th

Plenty of offense on view around the Arizona farm system, the four affiliates piling up 34 runs. Unfortunately, pitching... Not so much. They conceded 33, and lost three of the day's four contests.

Snakelet of the Day:
Chris Owings (High-A): 4-for-6, HR, 2 3B, 2 RBI, 2 R, SB

Triple-A: Reno 11, Iowa 14. Both teams came out slugging; the Cubs scored three in the top of the first, but the Aces responded with six in their half. Reno had an 11-8 lead after seven, until Daniel Stange and Jason Urquidez combined to allowed six runs in the eighth and ninth. Micah Owings was tagged for six runs on nine hits and two walks in five, although he did go 2-for-2, doubling and tripling. C Konrad Schmidt went 4-for-5 with a homer, while 3B Cody Ransom and CF Collin Cowgill both homered and reached base three times apiece. LF Wily Mo Pena and 1B Brandon Allen enjoyed multi-hit games.

Double-A: Mobile 3, Carolina 7. Jarrod Parker got the start for the Baybears, and threw five innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk; he struck out three. " enough said," Tweeted our prospect afterward. Mobile made it a one-run game in the sixth, but the Mudcats re-extended their lead, scoring four in the seventh off Leyson Septimo, who failed to retire any of the three batters faced, and Ryan Cook, who allowed all those three runners to score, and added one of his own. Clay Zavada worked a scoreless ninth, and has a 1.35 ERA. Your Daily Goldschmidt: a rare three-strikeout day, Paul going 1-for-5 with a run scored.

High-A: Visalia 17 @ Inland Empire 2. The Rawhide reached seventeen runs for the second time this week [they also did it on Wednesday vs. Bakersfield]. But first, a good outing from Tyler Skaggs, who held the 66ers to one run over six innings, on four hits and three walks, with six K's. However, this was all about the offense, as only one Visalia batter failed to reach safely at least twice. SS Chris Owings had another four-hit game, homering and adding two triples, driving in three - as did his namesake DH Jon Owings. 2B Raoul Torrez clubbed a grand-slam in the second, ending with three hits and five RBI.

A-ball: South Bend 3 @ Bowling Green 10. This contest was closer than it perhaps looked, with the teams locked up at 3-3 after five. Unfortunately, Silver Hawks starter J.R. Bradley stumbled in the six, and ended up being tagged for six runs, on seven hits and two walks in 5.2 innings, and the South Bend bullpen struggled in the seventh and eighth, letting the Hot Rods speed off. The offense couldn't take advantage of an opposing starter who walked seven and also hit a Silver Hawk in 3.2 frames. 3B Matt Helm had two hits, while 1B Yazy Arbelo drew two walks and also hit his tenth homer of the season.
