Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 6th

SnakeSounds will be up in the morning - if we'd won, I might have stayed up for the audio clippage, but I can't be bothered after a loss. Walks killed Arizona all night, and hence a pointed communal award to the Aces hurlers, for their lack of free passes. Our farm teams went 3-1, and outscored the opposition 17-14.

Snakelets of the Day:
The Reno Pitchers (Triple-A): 9 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Triple-A: Reno 3 @ Salt Lake 0. Kyler Newby and a trio of Aces relievers combined on a seven-hit shutout of the Bees - and, Armando Galarraga please note, walked only one batter in the process. Newby threw five shutout frames, on three hits; Jordan Norberto worked a scoreless sixth; Daniel Stange struck out three in two innings; and Kam Mickolio brought the tying run to the plate, but closed things out for the save. DH Wily Mo Peña and recently-promoted LF Evan Frey each got two hits, anc CF Collin Cowgill reached twice, on a double and walk. C Robby Hammock homered, his first of the year.

Double-A: Mobile 5, Tennessee 4. Let's start with Your Daily Goldschmidt. For Paul got the game off to a good start, smacking his 11th home-run in the first inning, a three-run shot. He added two more hits later on. CF A.J. Pollock went one base better, also getting three hits, but with a double and a homer in there, and LF Ollie Linton had a pair of knocks. Charlie Brewer went three shutout frames on one hit, and Bryan Henry allowed one run in his three innings. Clay Zavada gave up three runs in the seventh on three hits, though they were all unearned, and Bryan Shaw got the save, despite a couple of hits.

High-A: Visalia 3 @ Modesto 6. The Rawhide outhit the Nuts 9-6, but much as with the big-league club, wildness was a problem. Starter Eric Smith and two relievers walked eight in eight innings, and also threw a pair of wild pitches. Smith was charged with five runs, four earned, in 5.1 innings, on five hits and four walks, with four strikeouts. LF Raoul Torrez and CF Keon Broxton each got two hits and drove in a run, and RF Justin Hilt also reached twice, on a walk and a hit, but Visalia were held without an extra-base hit.

A-ball: South Bend 6 @ Dayton 4. The Silver Hawks gave David Holmberg just enough run support to get his first win of the season. He went five innings, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks, but did strike out eight batters - that's 24 over his last three starts and 17 innings. Tonight he had some great bullpen help, Daniel Taylor and Jeremy Erben combining for four innings of one-hit ball with five K's. On offense, RF Roberto Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen-base. CF Ender Inciarte reached four times, on two hits and two walks, and 1B Yazy Arbelo had an interesting line of five PAs, zero ABs - he drew three free passes and was hit twice.
