Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 5/8/16: The Rawhide Strike Back

New, comments

The Visalia Rawhide put up 19 runs on 22 hits against the Lancaster Jethawks. Check out the recaps for the Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates.

Rudy Flores drove in 4 runs with 3 extra base hits, including a 2nd inning Grand Slam.

The Rawhide avenged a 19-5 blowout last night in impressive fashion, with an impressive display of offense that will leave people talking for a while. The Baybears had a game at the plate that can be described with a sad trombone sound effect, losing a low-scoring game. The Aces got rained out, which is probably why Archie Bradley is able to make his start for the Dbacks tomorrow and the Kane County Cougars had the day off as they head to Cedar Rapids.

Reno vs. Salt Lake: Postponed, Rain

Mobile 1, Chattanooga 2: Edgar Garcia made the start for the Baybears and did a good job at keeping the Lookouts off the scoreboard over 7 innings. The only problem for him is the Baybear hitters couldn't muster any offense. The only extra base hits were a double and a solo home run by Stewart Ijames. Garcia allowed two runs in the 5th inning, which unfortunately was enough due to a sputtering offense. Garcia allowed 5 hits and 3 walks with 3 strikeouts in his start. Seth Simmons contributed two shutout innings in the losing effort.

Visalia 19, Lancaster 2: The Rawhide blew away the Jethawks with an impressive display of hitting, pitching, and defense. 8 of the 9 Rawhide hitters recorded at least one hit and reached base twice. The Rawhide cranked out 5 home runs and 10 extra base hits in a 22-hit attack. Rudy Flores led the team with 3 extra base hits and hit a 2nd inning grand slam to blow this game open. 4 players drove in 3+ runs in the game and 6 players scored multiple runs. With the bats going strong behind him, starter Ethan Elias pitched a strong ball game, allowing 2 runs in 6 innings. Elias allowed 6 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. The bullpen followed with 3 shutout innings to cap the blowout.
