Arizona Diamondbacks Down on the Farm Report: May 12

A daily look at the previous night's action in the Arizona Diamondbacks farm system.

Reno was back in action Thursday. Here is what happened at the Triple-A level and with the other Arizona Diamondbacks affiliates. 

Triple-A Reno Aces (20-14)

  • Left-hander and Diamondbacks No.1 prospect Anthony Banda was not his dominant self Thursday night versus the New Orleans Baby Cakes. In six innings of work, Banda allowed 4 runs on 7 hits and struck out 5. 
  • On the bright side, Banda's 39 strikeouts rank third in the Pacific Coast League but the 23-year-old is walking over four batters per nine innings. While young pitchers tend to struggle the most with control, Banda walked 3.3 batters per nine innings in 2016. 
  • RF Oswaldo Arcia contributed HR No. 8 of the season along with his 36th run batted in and went 2-for-4. Arcia is hitting .474 (18-for-38) with 7 doubles, 3 home runs and 16 RBI over his last nine games. 
  • Ketel Marte just keeps hitting. The shortstop collected two more knocks on Thursday and has hit safely in 29 of 31 games this season. 
  • The Aces currently sit two games back of first place in their division. 
  • Right-hander Eric Jokisch makes his fourth start for the Aces in 2017 Friday at 6:35 p.m. MST. Odrisamer Despaigne starts for the Baby Cakes. 

Double-A Jackson Generals (20-13)

  • The Generals dropped a 6-4 decision to the Tennessee Smokies Thursday. 
  • Jackson now sits a 0.5 GB of the first place Smokies in the Southern League North Division standings. 
  • Right-hander Ivan Pineyro was stellar out of the Generals pen. The reliever allowed 1 unearned run and struck out 4 in three innings. 
  • Left fielder Rudy Flores was 2-for-4 with a triple (1), home run (5), 3 RBIs (22 total) and a run scored. 
  • Right fielder Victor Reyes tallied his ninth double and has reached base safely in his last 13 games. 
  • Evan Marzilli did his best to contribute to the extra base hit parade. The center fielder had a double (4), home run (3), RBI (8) and a run scored. 
  • Right-hander Brooks Hall gets the start for the Generals against Tennessee Friday. First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m., Arizona time.
