Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: May 7th

Four out of the five games ended in our favor, with Reno's double-header sweep of Salt Lake the highlight. However, despite that, runs scored and conceded ended level at 25, because the only loss was a blowout of Mobile, while none of the wins were by more than three. No question who provided the offensive fireworks:

Snakelet of the Day:
Wily Mo Peña (Triple-A): 4-for-6, 3 HR, 3 RBI, 3 R

Triple-A: Reno 5/4 @ Salt Lake 4/1. The Aces took the opener of the seven-inning double-header, timing their comeback nicely. They trailed 4-0 after four, but scored three in the fifth and two in the seventh. 2B Tony Abreu and 1B Andy Tracy each had two hits, and Jason Urquidez got the win in relief, retiring all five batters faced. In the nightcap, Tom Layne completed the sweep. Pitching on short rest, he allowed one run in six innings, on five hits and a walk, striking out two. Wily Mo Pena powered the offense, getting three of the Aces four hits, two of them leaving the park - having also homered in the opener, he now has 12 HR on the year, leading all of AAA.

Double-A: Mobile 1, Tennessee 8.  After four shutout innings, Wade Miley fell apart, allowing the Smokies a six-spot in the fifth, and ending with the line of eight runs, all earned, on nine hits and two walks, over six innings. That was easily more than enough for Tennessee, as they held the BayBears to just four hits, all of them singles. SS Niko Gallego had two of those, with RF Kyle Greene also reaching base safely twice, on a walk and a hit. Your Daily Goldschmidt. Our first-base prospect also reached twice with a walk and hit, driving in the only Mobile run to give them the lead in the third.

High-A: Visalia 8 @ Modesto 7. The Rawhide turned this one right around with a seven-run fifth inning. They came in 6-1 down, but sent eleven to the plate to take the lead, despite a nervous ninth which say the tying run on second with one out, as Yonata Ortega allowed a double, a walk and two wild pitches.2B David Nick had two hits and drove in two runs, while 1B Matt Davidson and LF Raoul Torrez also had a pair of knocks, and 3B Bobby Borchering added a two-run homer. Derek Eitel got the W, thanks to the offense; he scattered nine hits and two walks over five innings, leading to six runs, four earned. Adam Worthington pitched three innings of one-hit, shutout relief.

A-ball: South Bend 7, Fort Wayne 5.. The Silver Hawks bats woke up, but they also took advantage of four TinCaps miscues, with only two of their runs being earned. CF Ender Inciarte continued his hot streak, with his fourth consecutive multi-hit game; RF Bobby Stone, DH Raywilly Gomez, and C Ramon Castillo also got two hits [though I'm wondering if the box-score mixed up the positions of the last two?] Tyler Green got the win, the two runs he allowed in five innings, both being unearned [South Bend committed three errors of their own, making for a gaffe-filled seven in total]. He gave up four hits and three walks, fanning two.
