Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 16th

Only one win for the Diamondbacks affiliates, but South Bend were idle. An easy choice for Snakelet of the Day, even though our farm teams were outscored 13-17 overall.

Snakelet of the Day:
Wes Roemer (Double-A): 7.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Triple-A: Reno 6, Iowa 9. Kevin Mulvey had a quality start after six innings, but his part in a six-run seventh inning for the Cubs ruined all that. He scattered seven hits and three walks across his 6.1 innings and ended up being charged with five runs, all earned. Jordan Norberto and Rafael Rodriguez were the other villains of that frame, though Kyler Newby posted a zero in the ninth. 2B Tony Abreu had three hits and drove in two runs, while there were multi-hit games for CF Collin Cowgill, SS Cody Ransom and 3B Sean Burroughs.

Double-A: Mobile 6, Carolina 1. If the team are looking for a Galarraga replacement - and they should be - maybe Wes Roemer might get a look. He allowed one run over 7 2/3 innings, allowing two hits, walking one and striking out four. His ERA on the season is now down to 2.39. However, he didn't get the W, as the BayBears offense only showed up in the bottom of the eighth, scoring five times. 3B Ryan Wheeler had two hits and drove in two, and C Ed Easley had three RBI, while CF A.J. Pollock also had a two-hit night. Your Daily Goldschmidt. Paul was held hitless in two at-bats, but did draw two walks and scored a run.

High-A: Visalia 1, Inland Empire 7. The Rawhide hitters struggled with runners in scoring position, going 0-for-7 on the night. CF Adam Eaton and 3B Raoul Torrez had two hits apiece, with the former driving in the only Visalia score of the game. 1B Matt Davidson reached safely three times, on a hit and two of the Rawhide's three free passes. Mike Belfiore had the worst possible start: the first five batters faced all reached and scored, as the 66ers went back-to-back-to-back on him. He struggled badly with his control, allowing six walks in addition to seven hits in 4.2 innings, giving up six runs.
