Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up, 6/19: No Mo' Wily Edition

The Aces marked the loss of one of their offensive powerhouses by putting up a 12-spot on the 51's in Las Vegas, but another one of our affiliates were reduced to one-hit wonders. Three of the five Diamondbacks affiliates playing today came out on top.

Snakelet of the Day:
Collin Cowgill (Triple-A): 4-for-6, 2 2B, 4 RBI, SB

Triple-A: Reno 12 @ Las Vegas 9. Wily Mo Pena celebrated his call-up to the D-backs in his final game for Reno with two more hits, driving in another run. His final line, over 63 games: .369/.439/.726, with 21 HR and 63 RBI. Over the last nine games: 20-for-34 with nine extra-base hits, three HR and 11 RBI. Today, however, he was outdone by RF Cole Gillespie's three hits and LF Collin Cowgill, who went 4-for-6 with two doubles and four RBI. Matt Torra was smacked around for fourteen hits in four innings, leading to eight runs, but the bullpen allowed one run over five, with Yhency Brazoban picking up his second save for a 1-2-3 ninth.

Double-A: Mobile 3, Montgomery 1. Wade Miley pitched seven shutout innings for the BayBears, to pick up his third victory of the year. He scattered five hits and walked one, striking out four. Paul Goldschmidt ended his hitless streak in no uncertain fashion, clubbing his 22nd homer, a two run shot in the first inning, which gave Mobile the lead for good. LF Ollie Linton was the only batter to reach more than once for the home team, with a hit and a walk, RF Marc Krauss driving in the BayBears' other run with a Clay Zavada notched the save, closing out the eighth, then pitching a perfect ninth.

High A: Visalia 3, Bakersfield 2. Despite being outhit 11-5, and striking out a collective 13 times, the Rawhide kept themselves in the game, and pushed across the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. DH Bobby Borchering notched his thirteenth homer in the fourth inning, and also walked; C Rossmel Perez also had a hit and a free pass. Visalia starter Eric Smith struggled with his control, walking six Blaze batters in his six innings, and also uncorked a wild-pitch, but held them to one run on six hits. Taylor Sinclair got the W after retiring all three batters faced in the top of the ninth.

A-ball: South Bend 4, Bowling Green 6. The Silver Hawks couldn't hold on, allowing four in the ninth with two outs, to blow a 4-2 lead over the Hot Rods. All four runs scored off Blake Cooper and Chris Odegaard, the latter surrendering a key bases-loaded double. South Bend had come back themselves, scoring three times in the eighth to take the lead. The bullpen meltdown wasted a solid start by J.R. Bradley, who allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over six innings, fanning three, and reliever Dan Taylor, who retired all six batters faced. CF Edgar Enciarte had three hits, 3B Zach Walters and RF Roberto Ortiz two apiece.

Low-A: Yakima 0 @ Vancouver 4.The Bears were almost incapable of solving the Canadians pitching, as Justin Nicolino and Blake McFarland combined on a one-hit shutout of Yakima. CF Marc Bourgeois got the Bears sole hit, a double, but was thrown out at third trying to stretch it into a triple. 1B Jimmy Comerata drew a walk, as Yakima's only other base-runner, so Vancouver faced one batter over the minimum 27. Adam Kudryk had a good start for the Bears, throwing up five zeroes, on three hits and three walks, striking out eight. However, the bullpen allowed a three-spot in the sixth, easily enough for the Canadians to hold on.
