Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 20th

Three of the four Diamondbacks' affiliates were involved in one-run games today, so they clearly are learning something from the big-league club. However, two of them had the temerity to lose, which is just...wrong - though there may be some squee-ing from the SnakePit laideez, when they see who got a walkoff hit against Reno! Still, we outscored the opposition 20-17, and split the four contests.

Snakelet of the Day:
Bradin Hagens (A): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K

Triple-A: Reno 6 @, Albuquerque 7. This see-saw contest saw Reno blow a 4-1 lead, but then tie the game up in the top of the ninth on a pinch-hit bunt by Mark Hallberg. However, a name you might recognize - Trent Oeltjen - got a walk-off RBI single against Kyler Newby in the bottom of the inning, to send the Aces to defeat. Matt Torra delivered a minimally-quality start, of three earned runs over six innings, on six hits and no walks, with four strikeouts. There were homers for RF Cole Gillespie and CF Collin Cowgill, while LF Wily Mo Pena finished a long-ball short of the cycle. 3B Andy Tracy reached safely three times, on a hit and two walks.

Double-A: Mobile 5 @ Tennessee 6. Jarrod Parker's struggles continued. This time, it was death by long-ball, as he allowed three homers, resulting in all five runs he allowed over five innings. His final line was five hits and a walk, with two strikeouts.  The BayBears showed spirit, fighting back to level the game on three occasions, but Billy Spottiswood was tagged for three hits and a walk in the seventh, and Mobiel didn't have a fourth comeback in them. RF Marc Krauss homered and doubled, driving in three; 3B Ryan Wheeler and SS Taylor Harbin got two hits each. Your Daily Goldschmidt. 0-for-4 with a walk. Meh.

High-A: Visalia 5 @ Rancho Cucamonga 4. A four run seventh inning by the Rawhide was enough to make a winner of Tyler Skaggs, who worked seven frames and allowed three runs on five hits and a walk, with five strikeouts. He was lifted after the lead-off man got on base in the eighth, and the bullpen allowed that runner to score, albeit without a hit. Taylor Sinclar had an interesting ninth, allowing a walk, single and RBI double, but fortunately, in the middle, a caught-stealing proved crucial and Visalia held on. RF Adam Eaton had three hits, and there were  two-hit nights for 2B David Nick, SS Chris Owings and 3B Bobby Borchering.

A-ball: South Bend 4 @ Great Lakes 0 . Bradin Hagens and a pair of Silver Hawks relievers combined on a three-hitter, blanking the Loons to earn South Bend their first shutout of the 2011 season. Hagens picked up his win with seven solid innings, allowing just two hits and striking out a career high eight He walked the first two to open the fourth inning, then retired 12 in a row. Dan Taylor and Chris Odegaard completed the victory, each with a scoreless frame. The offense was in "just enough" mode, but SS Zach Walters got his fifth homer, and drove in two runs. DH Yazy Arbelo and 1B Ramon Castillo each got a hit and a walk.
