Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 5/23/2018: Extra Extra Innings, Read All About It

A pair of games went into extra innings with the teams going 1-1 in those games.

The Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates combined to go 2-2 with two extra inning games from the top two affiliates.

Snake Stars

3 Stars: Reno RHP Troy Scribner 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R (2 ER), 3 BB, 5 K, GS 61

2 Stars: Visalia RF Luis Silverio 3 for 5 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R

1 Star: Kane County C Renae Martinez 2 for 3, 2B, BB, RBI, R

0 Stars: Visalia RHP Tyler Keele 4 IP, 7 H, 7 R (5 ER), 2 BB, 4 K, GS 23, L (0-1)

Reno Aces 4, Fresno Grizzlies 3 F/10: Troy Scribner allowed 2 runs in 6 innings and was in line for the win when Reno got 2 runs in the 7th. Anthony Recker contributed with a game-tying homer to lead off the inning and situational hitting got the go-ahead run across. Unfortunately, Fresno was able to get the tying run across against Anthony Vasquez in the bottom half of the inning. However, a scoreless 9th by Jake Barrett sent the game into extras where Reno (21-27) drove in their free runner and Fresno did not because Barrett threw out the free runner at 3rd then got 2 strikeouts, bringing his total for 5 in the game.

Jackson Generals 8, Birmingham Barons 9: In an overall sloppy game played by both sides, the Generals (27-19) proved to be the sloppier team on the diamond. Both teams traded 3 spots in the first inning before Jackson took a 5-3 lead after 6 innings. Unfortunately the bullpen was unable to keep the lead not once, but twice blowing leads. That took the game into extras where Birmingham outscored Jackson 2-1 to steal the game.

Visalia Rawhide 6, Inland Empire 66ers 8: Poor starting pitching put Visalia (25-22) in an early 7-4 hole and they were unable to overcome it. A run in the 5th and 7th innings made the game a 7-6 game late, but Inland Empire scored an insurance run in the 8th. From the 2017 Draft Big 3: Drew Ellis went 1 for 3 with a double and 2 walks, Daulton Varsho 1 for 4 with a walk, and Pavin Smith 2 for 5. Luis Silverio had 3 hits, 2 doubles, and 2 RBI in the game, sparking a Visalia offense to battle their way back into the game.

Kane County Cougars 3, Cedar Rapids Kernels 2: A 2-run 6th vs. a 3-run 9th in this game as pitching was excellent for both sides. Brian Shaffer was scoreless through 5, but a 2-run homer put Cedar Rapids on the board in the 6th inning. It remained that way until the Cougars rallied for 3 runs in the 9th, with all four batters reaching base and 3 runs scoring. A leadoff single by Yoel Yanqui followed by back-to-back doubles by Renae Martinez and Ernie De La Trinidad tied the game at 2 before Eduardo Diaz walked it off with a single through the right side of the infield.
