The Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates combined for a 1-2 record.
(AAA) Reno Aces 11, Nashville Sounds 10: Another poorly pitched game from both sides, but became the third straight 1-run win over Nashville for Reno in this series. Anthony Vasquez got lit up for 7 hits and 5 runs in 3 2⁄3 innings. The Aces offense on the other hand was ready to go early with 10 runs scored in the first 4 innings. John Ryan Murphy had the big blow in the 2nd with a 3-run homer that gave Reno a 4-2 lead. The Aces would take on 4 more in the 3rd to take an early 10-4 lead, but that would not hold. Ryan Atkinson would pitch 2 1⁄3 innings, but wasn’t any more effective with 4 runs allowed with 2 of his 4 hits surrendered leaving the ballpark. Robbie Scott would allow a run in the 7th inning that tied the game at 10-10. Joey Krehbiel and Jimmie Sherfy were able to pitch scoreless innings to set up the walkoff opportunty. Wyatt Mathisen and Marty Herum drew walks that preceded Juniel Querecuto’s walkoff single.
(AA) Jackson Generals 3, Birmingham Barons 4: SSDD (same score, different day) between these two teams, although how they got there was different. Joel Payamps would allow 3 runs in 3 innings, his first outing after spending 2 months on the DL. Jackson would claw away at the deficit with RBI singles by Jazz Chisholm and Pavin Smith to make it 3-2 in the 6th. A Chisholm fielding error would allow the insurance run to reach base, but Damien Magnifico allowed 2 singles to let that runner score. The Generals would put up a fight in the 9th with a walk and a single to open the inning before Jeffrey Baez doubled with 1 out to score a run and put the tying run 90 feet away. Dominic Miroglio would bounce into a fielder’s choice out at home and Ryan Grotjohn would strike out for the final outs of the game.
(A) Kane County Cougars 4, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 5 (F/12): Levi Kelly was not as sharp in this start, as he walked 3 hitters, balked, and uncorked 2 wild pitches. Overall he allowed 3 runs (2 earned) in 3 1⁄3 innings allowing 4 hits and striking out 5. Kenny Hernandez came in and finished the 4th and pitched his way into the 8th inning as he kept Wisconsin off the board. Eduardo Diaz doubled home a run in the 3rd and the Cougars scored 3 times in the 4th to take a 4-3 lead. Ethan Larrison would get the last out of the 8th and the first out of the 9th, but was lifted after allowing a walk. That proved to be a mistake as Kai-Wei Lin would allow the tying run to score with 2 outs. The game would continue on for 12 innings thanks to both teams forgetting how to hit a baseball before Lin would surrender the winning run for Wisconsin in the top of the 12th.
