Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 4th

The Diamondbacks' farm teams were kept in check, the four affiliates combining for only 17 runs scored. However, their pitching was on top form, conceding only ten, with the sole loss a one-run defeat for the Triple-A Aces.

Snakelet of the Day:
Tyler Skaggs (High-A): 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Triple-A: Reno 3 @ Las Vegas 4. Micah Owings worked seven innings, but two homers - in particular a three-run shot with one out in the sixth - were enough to get him tagged with the loss. He scattered eight hits and a walk, striking out three 51's batters. The Aces got on the board with Collin Cowgill's fifth homer, leading off the fourth - he also doubled, and is batting .500 (21-for-42) in his past ten games, with as many walks as K's. 2B Tony Abreu and RF Cole Gillespie also got a couple of hits apiece, but Reno couldn't quite close the gap, despite pulling within one in the eighth and getting the tying run into scoring position with no outs in the ninth.

Double-A: Mobile 4, Tennessee 3. Starter Jarrod Parker struggled with his control, walking five in six innings, but allowed only two runs, on three hits, fanning four. Bryan Shaw blew the save by allowing a run in the eighth, but pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up the win. The BayBears took advantage of an error to put the winning run on third, and CF A.J. Pollock drove it in with a single. He got another single and a walk, while LF Ollie Linton and 3B Ryan Wheeler also got a couple of hits. Your Daily Goldschmidt. No hits for our 1B today, but then, he was walked three times. He has 27 of those this season, compared to 15 strikeouts.

High-A: Visalia 6, San Jose 2. Tyler Skaggs picked up his first win of the season, giving up only an unearned run over six innings: he held the Giants to two hits and a walk, striking out five. Adam Worthington struck out the visitors in the ninth. The Rawhide scored their six runs on only five hits: two of those came off the bat of LF Raoul Torrez, who homered in the third, and added a double later, finishing the night with four runs driven in. 3B Matt Davidson reached base safely with a hit and a walk. 

A-ball: South Bend 4 @ Dayton 1. Michael Bolsinger and Blake Cooper combined to throw five shutout innings of one-hit ball from the Silver Hawks bullpen, in relief of starter Bradin Hagens. He only lasted four frames, giving up five hits and four walks, but only one run was allowed. South Bend accumulated 13 hits, but couldn't manage to score more than one run in any frame. CF Ender Inciarte picked up three of those hits; 1B Yazy Arbelo, C Raywilly Gomez and SS Raul Navarro got a couple each, while RF Chris Jarrett reached base three times, with a hit and a couple of walks.
