MLB Dbacks

Today’s game featured 2 young pitchers in Ian Kennedy for the Diamondbacks and Armando Galarraga for the Astros. Both pitchers went 3 innings allowing 0 runs but that would not hold up for long. the Dbacks get 5 runs in the 4th on a Home run by Aaron Hill (371′), a Chris Young Single scored Jason Kubel, a Ryan Wheelerwalk scored Paul Goldschmidt, Ian Kennedy helped himself out with a sac RBI and Gerardo Parra hit a GRD that would score Stephen Drew. The offense for the Astros was a little lack luster scoring one run in the 6th on a single by Castro. Arron Hill would make it a memorable night by hitting a 2nd home run in the 8th (355′) to take the Dbacks in the win column 8-1. Arron Hill Finishes the night 3 for 4 with 2 HR, 2 RBI, 3 R and a walk. Chris Young also had 2 hits tonight. Ian Kennedy gets the win and his line was 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 5 BB, 7 K’s on 98 pitches. stay tuned to tomorrows matchup when the Dbacks return home to face the Miamia Marlins as Joe Saunders (6-9) faces Mark Buehrle (10-11).

AAA Reno Aces

Todays game between the Reno Aces & Tacoma Rainers featured Daniel Cabrera 0-0 recently obtained from IND making his first start. and Danny Hultzen 1-2 from Tacoma. Reno would get the edge early in this game getting a run in the 1st inning off of something so simple…. It starts with the walk of Adam Eaton. Eaton is the fastest guy i have ever seen on the base path and he can create havoc for pitchers. the whole time your pitching you know in the back of your head he is going to steal a base you just don’t know when. even if you guess the right play his raw speed just may beat your throw. Josh Bell then walked moving the speedy Eaton to 2nd base where he likes to dance for the pitcher when he looks back, this frustrates pitchers into making bad pitches. with a couple jukes Hultzen doesn’t bite so there he goes, he speeds towards 3rd and he is safe. Adam just stole his 37th base on the season. Eaton would then score on a sac fly by Konrad Schmidt. Reno would lead the game until the 6th inning when Nick Franklin hits a homerun to right field. in the 8th Alex Liddi hit a 2 run home run to take the lead and the Aces would run out of innings scoring 1 in the top of the 9th on a Konrad Schmidt Sac fly Gillespie would score a run but it would be 1 run short. Aces fall 4-3 to Tacoma scoring 3 runs on 4 hits and Tacoma scored 4 runs on 8 hits. 3 of Reno’s hits came from Mike Jacobs, & Cole Gillespie Tomorrows game will feature the young slinger Charles Brewer for the Aces (9-7, 6.14ER) VS Tacoma’s Ramirez (4-3, 4.05) My prediction on this game would be Reno Aces Win By 2.

AA Mobile BayBears

Todays game was postponed due to weather. a double-header will be played shortly. stay tuned.

A Visalia Rawhide

Visalia Rawhide played VS Modesto today and Visalia looses a slug fest game10-11 with a combined 25 hits and 0 errors. there was some great defense today by both teams. 4 homeruns were hit today by Broxton, LaPensee, Parker and Valesquez all hit the long ball today and you know what that means ” Chicks Dig The Long Ball”!
