Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 18th

Reno took the night off, but Mobile took up the offensive slack, in the best of today's games for Arizona's farm teams. Zach Duke also made his first rehab start, as he heads back from his broken hand. Our affiliates outscored the opposition 29-13 all told.

Snakelet of the Day:
Dan Kaczrowski (Double-A): 4-for-5, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R, .326 avg.

Double-A: Mobile 16, Carolina 6. After going down three in the top of the first, the BayBears exploded for 14 runs over the first three frames. They had 19 hits and 27 at-bats with runners in scoring position. Your Daily Goldschmidt: Paul had four hits, two doubles, both driving in and scoring two. He was fractionally outdone by 2B Dan Kaczrowski who atoned for his first inning error, by going 4-for-5 with three RBI. CF A.J. Pollock had three hits and a walk, while LF Ollie Linton reached five times, on a hit, a walk, and three HBPs, the last tying a Southern League record. Wade Miley scattered eight hits and three walks, with six runs, three earned over five innings for the W.

High-A: Visalia 10 @ Rancho Cucamonga 2. Zach Duke made his first rehab start, allowing one run over five innings. He scattered five hits, walked none and struck out four - assuming he goes again on the 23rd, he'll be ready to go on the 28th, which would mean we only need one spot start. RF Adam Eaton led the Rawhide offense, with his four hits including a homer and a triple, as he drove in two and scored three times. 3B Bobby Borchering also swatted his sixth homer, a ninth-inning grand-slam and ended the night with two hits and five RBI. DH Jon Owings had two hits and a walk, while 2B David Nick got a pair of knocks.

A-ball: South Bend 3, Lansing 5. The Silver Hawks were limited to five hits, and played sloppily in the field, committing three errors. While none of them led to any unearned runs, it was a lackluster performance, with a K:BB ratio for South Bend of 15:1. However, 1B Yazy Arbelo continues to mash the ball, hammering his twelfth and thirteenth homers of the year. Jeffrey Shields kept his team in the game, allowing three hits and a walk, with five strikeouts over five innings, and three runs, all earned. Daniel Taylor struck out four over two scoreless innings of relief work.
