Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 5/27/16: Baybears shut out Shuckers 1-0

New, comments

The Diamondbacks will call up two starters from the Reno Aces rotation to pitch on Sunday and Monday. Archie Bradley and Edwin Escobar are the two lucky pitchers, both of whom have been pitching well in Reno and are already on the 40-man roster.

Snake Stars
3 Stars:
RHP Matt Koch (Mobile) 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K
2 Stars: RHP Kyle Drabek (Reno) 7 IP, 10 H, 2 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 6 K
1 Star: C Michael Perez (Mobile) 1 for 4, solo HR (3), caught a SHO with no walks
0 Stars: 1B Rudy Flores (Visalia) 0 for 3, BB, 3 K

Reno 2, Round Rock 3: The Aces got a serviceable outing from starter Kyle Drabek, who scattered 10 hits over 7 innings, allowing just 2 runs with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. It helps when 9 of the 10 hits were singles and the defense turns two double plays and Socrates Brito collecting a pair of OF assists at home plate. Those defensive plays kept the team in the game, tying it when Ed Lucas corked his 5th homer of the year in the 9th inning. Unfortunately, Adam Loewen was unable to send the game into extras and Enrique Burgos could not get out of a bases loaded jam that he inherited.

Mobile 1, Biloxi 0: In his 2nd start since coming off the DL, Matt Koch was able to deliver 5 shutout innings, without issuing a free pass and striking out 6. The bullpen of Adam Miller, Daniel Gibson, and Jimmie Sherfy followed his lead with 4 more shutout innings without a walk and 5 strikeouts. The Baybears took the lead on a Michael Perez solo HR in the top of the 9th, combining that with a solid job of calling the game behind the plate. Jimmie Sherfy pitched a drama-free 9th inning to collect his 4th save of the year. It was truly a superb pitching performance by the Baybears pitching staff and it's nice that the guy calling the game for them got rewarded with the game-winning homer.

Visalia 2, Rancho Cucamonga 6: Wei-Chieh Huang's struggles in the California League continued, allowing 4 runs in 5 innings on 6 hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out 6 in his outing, so at least that was good to see. The Cal League can be very unforgiving on batted balls, but solid peripheral numbers are nice to see. Offensively, the Rawhide didn't mount much against the Giants. Oscar Hernandez hit 2 doubles and drove in both runs for the Rawhide.

Kane County 2, Beloit 3: Tyler Mark had a so-so outing, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks with 3 strikeouts. Mark was able to limit the damage with the baserunners against him, but one bad pitch doomed his outing. Junior Garcia came in and pitched 4 shutout innings with 5 strikeouts to stabilize the game, but the Cougars were unable to push across the tying run. Trevor Mitsui doubled in both Cougar runs in the 9th inning, but his pinch runner got stranded to end the game.
