Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 17th

I don't know what's in the water at Reno, but whatever it is, should get bottled and shipped to Phoenix, stat. Eleven more runs for the Aces today, as they improved their record to 25-15. Three of the D-backs farm teams won, outscoring their opponents 24-12 in total.

Sean Burroughs (Triple-A): 5-for-5, 3 2B, 3B, 4 RBI, 2 R

Triple-A: Reno 11, Iowa 6. The Aces went 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position, and still scored eleven times. The assault was led by 3B Sean Burroughs five-hit afternoon, four of which went for extra bases - he drove in four runs. RF Collin Cowgill had three hits and stole two bases, while 1B Brandon Allen added a homer and walked twice, and SS Tony Abreu homered, doubled and walked. Barry Enright started for the Aces and got the W despite allowing five runs in six innings, on six hits and a walk. He fanned six, but also allowed two homers. Tom Layne and Kam Mickolio combined for three shutout frames of relief.

Double-A: Mobile 5, Carolina 0. Charlie Brewer and two relievers combined for a five hitter, as the BayBears blanked the Mudcats. Brewer went five innings, allowing four hits and a walk, striking out seven. Bryan Henry followed with three frames of one-hit ball and Billy Spottiswood finished things off with a hitless ninth. SS Taylor Harbin got three hits, including a pair of doubles, while CF A.J. Pollock also had two double, driving in two runs, and C Ed Easley picked up a couple of knocks. Your Daily Goldschmidt. Paul was held hitless, going 0-for-3 but did drive in a run.

High-A: Visalia 1 @ Rancho Cucamunga 4. Eric Smith started for the Rawhide and struggled with his control. He walked fie in five innings which, along with the eight hits allowed, led to four runs, three earned. Visalia had their chances, but struggled with runners in scoring position, going 1-for-9. RF Jon Owings drove in the game's only score for the Rawhide, as they were held to a mere four hits. CF Adam Eaton drew two of Visalia's four walks, with 2B David Nick reaching twice, on a hit and a walk. Diogenes Rosario threw two scoreless innings in relief, striking out three.

A-ball: South Bend 7, Lansing 2. David Holmberg had a very solid outing, allowing only two unearned runs over seven innings. He scattered seven hits, walking none and striking out three, taking his season ERA down to 3.80. Indeed, only two of the nine runs scored in the game were earned: the Silver Hawks took full advantage of Lugnuts errors, with five unearned tallies as part of a six-run second. Chris Odegaard and Blake Cooper posted zeroes in the eighth and ninth. 1B Yazy Arbelo hit his eleventh homer, one of four Silver Hawks to have a two-hit game. The others were C Raywilly Gomez, 3B Zach Walters and SS Raul Navarro.
