Dbacks MiLB Round-Up 5/30: Drury the Real Deal

Visalia's Brandon Drury is putting up another very good season on top of the one he posted last year in the Midwest League. He's more than a year below the average league age as he hit his 12th home run last night in 54 games. That puts him on pace to hit somewhere between 25-30 homers to go along with a doubles pace around 40-50. His current .240 ISO ranks in the Top 10 of the California League and keeps him right on the heels of Jake Lamb as the organization's top third base prospect.

AAA: Reno 4 Fresno 10. Zeke Spruill was given an early lead with 4 runs in the 1st inning but he couldn't hold onto it. He gave up 8 runs over 4 innings and the offense couldn't overcome that. Mike Jacobs continues to swing a hot bat going 3 for 5 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI. Alfredo Marte also went 3 for 5 with a double.

AA: Mobile 8 Jackson 2. The Bay Bears scored 2 runs in each of the first 3 innings and never looked back. Justin Fitzgerald had a good start going 5+ innings allowing 2 runs (1 earned) while striking out 9. RJ Hively, Kaleb Fleck and Jimmie Sherfy eliminated any comeback threats with 3 shutout innings combined in relief. Gerson Montilla just missed hitting for the cycle collecting a double, a triple and a homer for 2 RBI. Catcher Mark Thomas added a 2-run homer in the 3rd inning.

Erratic Jesse Darrah started and went 5 + innings allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits and 3 walks while striking out 6. Enrique Burgos pitched a perfect 9th with 2 strikeouts for his 11th save. The 6th inning runs came off a 2-run homer by Brandon Drury followed by a solo shot from Alex Glenn. Both Drury and Glenn have 12 homers.

A: South Bend 4 @ Lake County 5. The Silver Hawks lost a heartbreaker due to some shaky work by their closers. Silvino Bracho blew a one-run lead in the 9th and Johnny Shuttlesworth surrendered 3 in the bottom of the 12th after the offense had scored twice in the top half of the inning. It cost Blayne Weller the win who was very good allowing just 1 run over 6+ innings with 9 strikeouts. Andrew Velazquez went 2 for 5 with a walk and Jamie Westbrook went 2 for 5 with a double. Michael Perez hit a solo homer.
