Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 7/24/2019

The Diamondbacks Minor League Affiliates combined for a 4-3 record

(AAA) Reno Aces 14, Tacoma Rainiers 3: Jon Duplantier allowed 1 run in 3 13 innings on 3 hits, a walk, and 3 strikeouts in 55 pitches. The Aces hitters decided to play a bit of HR derby starting with a 3-run bomb from Juniel Querecuto that gave the Aces the lead in the second. A 5-run 4th inning, highlighted by RBI doubles from John Ryan Murphy and Ben DeLuzio as well as a 2-run shot from Blake Swihart. Domingo Leyba and Andy Young added solo homers in the game as well. Bradin Hagens would repeat Duplantier’s line from a run prevention standpoint with 1 run in 3 13 to pick up the win while Lucas Luetge and Joey Krehbiel locked things up for the win. Bottom of the order proved to be the catalyst for Reno as Young, Querecuto, Murphy, and DeLuzio combined to go 10 for 16 with 9 RBI and 9 runs scored.

(AA) Jackson Generals 1, Mississippi Braves 5: Emilio Vargas got touched up for 5 runs on 8 hits (2 leaving the yard) over 4 innings. The Generals offense only was able to muster up a solo homer from Evan Marzilli in the 5th for any runs in the game.

(A+) Visalia Rawhide 0, San Jose Giants 4: An ugly game for the Rawhide, as they managed more errors (4) than hits (2). Those errors would come back to haunt Jeff Bain, who otherwise posted a dominant outing of 7 innings, allowing just 4 hits, and struck out 10 with no walks. Despite drawing 6 walks and getting a triple as one of their two hits, an 0 for 6 day with RISP proved to be costly.

(A) Kane County Cougars 5, Clinton LumberKings 3: Ryan Weiss provided a strong start with 6 innings of 2 run ball on 7 hits, 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts. The offense would give him a nice parting gift as a a pair of 7th inning homers hit by Buddy Kennedy and Zack Shannon would give Kane County a 4-2 lead and make Weiss a winner. Andy Toelken delivered a clean 7th inning before Wesley Rodriguez ran into trouble in the 8th. 4 of the 5 batters he faced would reach, prompting his exit from the game and Jose Cuas’ entry. Cuas would pitch out of the jam and record the final 5 outs of the game for the save.

(A-) Hillsboro Hops 4, Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 1: Tyler Holton allowed just 1 run in 3 innings while recording 4 strikeouts and no walks. The Hops offense took a while to work their way onto the scoreboard, but a 2-run single by Kristian Robinson in the 5th would give Hillsboro the lead for good. Robinson would add a 7th inning solo homer to complete his 3 for 4 day with 3 RBI. The bullpen pitched 6 shutout innings to carry this game to the end, punching out 7.

(Rk+) Missoula Osprey 2, Idaho Falls Chukars 15: Bobby Ay would allow 3 runs in his 1 inning of work, although things got worse after he left. Dustin Lacaze would follow with 4 13 innings, allowing 6 runs to score to put the game out of reach. The Osprey hitters didn’t put up much of a resistance at the plate, scoring on a Francis Martinez solo homer and a Spencer Brickhouse sac fly.

(Rk) AZL Dbacks 9, AZL Giants Black 2: The Dbacks would pound 15 hits, 4 of them happening with RISP, to beat the Giants pitchers into submission. The top of the order carried the team with 11 hits coming from the top 4 spots in the order. Starter Alex Valdez would allow just 1 run on 3 hits, 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts over 5 innings to pick up the win. The bullpen would just allow 1 unearned run on 2 hits, no walks, and 5 strikeouts the rest of the way.
