The Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates combined for a 3-0 record. Reno was the only team that was off. The most notable pitching prospect to take the mound was Drey Jameson for Amarillo.
This game was much more lopsided than the final score. Drey Jameson allowed 4 runs (3 earned) over 7 innings on 5 hits, 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts. He would surrender 2 homers, both solo shots. Amarillo quickly took control early with the bats, scoring 8 times in the first 3 innings to take an 8-3 lead. They would also score 4 runs in their final 2 trips to the plate as well to salt the game away once the bullpen came in.
On offense Amarillo recorded 18 hits, with every starter in the lineup recorded at least one hit with 6 players recording at least one RBI and 8 players scoring a run. Stone Garrett was the leader with a pair of homers and 4 RBI as a result of them. Alek Thomas was 2 for 5 with a walk.
Another game where an overwhelming barrage of hitting was enough to overcome suspect pitching. Hillsboro would score 6 times between the 3rd and 5th innings, including all three of their home runs, in order to take a 6-3 lead after 5. Marcos Tineo would allow 3 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts to pick up the win. The bullpen was a bit leaky, allowing 3 runs over the final 4 innings, but Hillsboro’s offense scored 4 times in their final two trips to the plate to secure it.
Every player in the lineup; would reach base in this game and picking up either an RBI or run scored along the way. Cam Coursey’s 3 for 4 day resulted in him falling a triple short of the cycle.
Visalia would come from behind to pick this game up. Both teams were able to get the offense going early, allowing Visalia to take a 4-3 lead in the 3rd, just to watch the Storm to get it back. A bad start from Avery Short put Visalia in that deficit, but the bats were able to rally in the 6th to tie and the go-ahead run in 7th. Ronny Simon and Caleb Roberts would provide the muscle, the latter responsible for the tying runs to score and the former providing the go-ahead shot in the 7th.
