Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 5th

The four Arizona affiliates were outscored 17-21, with A-ball Visalia the only team to come out ahead. Guess all the day's good mojo was to be found at Chase Field.

Snakelet of the Day:
Marc Krauss (Double-A): 2-for-3, 2 BB, 2B

Triple-A: Reno 3 @, Las Vegas 5. The sides traded two-spots in the opening frame, but after that., the Aces bats went quiet, as they managed one run the rest of the way. Kevin Mulvey had an outing best described as "interesting" - he walked six, compared to only three strikeouts, yet still produced a quality start, giving up three runs, two earned, in six innings, on seven hits. 2B Tony Abreu had a pair of hits, and LF Wily Mo Peña also got a couple of knocks, while 1B Brandon Allen walked and had a hit, driving in two runs for the Aces. Kam Mickolio was the best pitcher, working a clean ninth.

Double-A: Mobile 6, Tennessee 7. A late-inning collapse doomed the BayBears, who were 6-3 up after seven innings. Billy Spottiswood allowed the Smokies to get a run closer in the eighth, but it was the ninth where the real damage was done. Ryan Cook got two outs, but loaded the bases in the process, then Leyson Septimo walked in a run, and allowed a two-run single to blow the win. Wes Roemer had a quality start (7 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 7 K), and Marc Krauss reached base safely four times, with two hits and two walks. Your Daily Goldscmidt. Paul had two hits, including a two-run homer in the fifth - he has now reached double-figures there in 2011. 

High-A: Visalia 6, Tennessee 5. The Rawhide charged out to an early 4-0 lead by the end of the third, but three frames later, the contest was tied. Mike Belfiore was charged with three runs, all unearned, over his five innings of work. He scattered six hits, three walks and struck out seven. 3B Bobby Borchering committed two of the three Visalia errors, and is at seven for the season. DH Jon Owings went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, but it was CF Keon Broxton who delivered the key blow, reclaiming the lead with his own solo shot in the eighth. He had another hit and also walked, while SS Chris Owings picked up a couple of hits.

A-ball: South Bend 2 @ Dayton 4. The Silver Hawks offensive woes continued, as they have scored eight runs in their past four games combined. They didn't help themselves in the field, making three errors. J.R. Bradley took the loss, sending his record to 0-5, though he didn't pitch badly tonight: four runs, three earned, over 5.2 innings, on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Brian Budrow struck out three batters in 1.1. relief innings. CF Ender Inciarte got two hits while 1B Yazy Arbelo walked and also delivered his eighth homer of the year. He now has 21 RBI, five more than the next-placed Silver Hawk.
