Diamondbacks Farm Round-Up: June 26

I think IHSB is due back to the SnakePit World tomorrow, so you'll start to get comments from someone who does more than read the box-scores again! A lot of close games, with Reno the only affiliate where the contest was decided by a margin greater than three. The D-backs farm system went 3-4, but the Aces' big win was enough to make the run differential even, at 45-45.

Snakelet of the Day:
Garrett Weber (Low-A): 4-for-4, two 2B, two RBI

Triple-A: Reno 9 @ Sacramento 2. Barry Enright got the W, holding the River Cats to two hits in 6.1 innings, walking two and striking out nine batters. He allowed both runs, and the bullpen kept Sacramento hitless the rest of the way; Alberto Castill struck out three batters around a walk in the eighth. RF Cole Gillespie got three hits, including his fith home-run of the season, and drove in three runs. CF Evan Frey and C Lucas May also went deep, both men adding a walk, single and two RBI.

Double-A: Mobile 1 @ Mississippi 4. A power outage with two outs in the top of the ninth caused this one to be suspended - the blackout affected the entire park as well as surrounding areas. It'll be restarted tomorrow evening before the scheduled game. The BayBears had managed only five hits: CF A.J. Pollock managed two of those, as well as a walk. Patrick Corbin went seven innings, allowed four runs though two were unearned, on six hits and no walks, with six strikeouts. Your Daily Goldschmidt. 0-for-3 with a walk, but no strikeouts.

High-A: Visalia 13 @ High Desert 15.Ten runs down after seven, the Rawhide mounted a furious comeback scoring two in the eighth and six in the ninth, but fell just short in this 39-hit slugfest. They pounded out 20 of them, with LF Raoul Torrez and DH Brent Greer both enjoying 4-for-4 evenings, RF Jon Owings getting three hits plus scoring four runs, and C Mark Reed driving in five. Best draw a veil over the pitching: starter Trevor Harden was tagged with 11 hits two walks and eight runs (three unearned) in his 5.2 innings of work.

A-ball: South Bend 0, West Michigan 3. The Silver Hawks were blanked by the Whitecaps, managing only three hits in this contest. Two of those were off the bat of 2B Gerson Montilla, and a pair of caught stealings meant they sent only two over the minimum to the plate. J.R. Bradley didn't pitch badly, scattering five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings, leading to three runs (one unearned), two of which scored after he had left the game. However, he still took the loss, his record dropping to 2-10 on the season.

Low-A: Yakima 6, Tri-City 5. The Bears did what Visalia couldn't, coming back after this one looked over, Yakima trailing 5-1 as they entered the ninth. But the first six Bears' batters reached safely, eventually setting up LF Jimmy Comerota with his second single of the inning, scoring the winning run with two outs. He had another knock previously, while 3B Garrett Weber went 4-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI. Randy Hamrick went seven, scattering six hits and three walks, leading to four runs. Drew Zizinia got the W for his perfect ninth.

Rookie: Missoula 7 @ Great Falls 8.The Osprey came back from 4-1 and 7-4 down, but less the Voyagers walk it off with one down in the ninth. 2B Fidel Pena reached safely four times, with two hits and two walks; six Osprey batters had multi-hit games, including LF Chris Ellison and 3B Stephen Cardullo, who each added a walk. Enrique Burgos got the start for Missoula, and struggled to find the plate, walking five in five, leading to four runs, all earned.

AZL: AZL Diamondbacks 9, AZL Mariners 8. A see-saw game saw the D-backs go ahead 4-1, fall behind 7-5, then withstand a ninth-inning comeback by the Mariners. Blake Perry worked five innings, and got no help from the defense, with three of the four runs allowed being unearned, on seven hits and a walk. Victor Acosta got the W, for three inning of work, giving up another unearned run on one hit, fanning three. 3B Pat Donahue reached four times, on two hits and two walks, 1B Joseph Welk got two hits, and 2B Jesus Abreu drew three walks and scored twice.
