Rays down on the farm April 29: Affiliates swept

Ryan Brett has 14 hits in his active six game hitting streak - Jim Donten

Ryan Brett's five hit game was one of a few highlights

The concern is obviously for Mikie Mahtook after he was hit in the face by a pitch attempting to bunt.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (17-9)

Durham's pitching staff struggled in a 13 inning 10-8 loss to the RailRiders.  Two pitchers, and one position player, Robby Price, out of seven didn't allow any runs, but one of them, Jeff Beliveau, allowed two inherited runners to score.  Durham tied the game in the bottom of the ninth with a two out, two run homer by Wilson Betemit, but they couldn't come through an inning later when the first two runners reached base.  In that inning, Mikie Mahtook was hit in the face by a pitch and had to be removed from the game.  In the 13th, a solo home run by Zelous Wheeler and RBI single by Russ Canzler against Steve Geltz gave the RailRiders the lead.

Each team put up a four run frame, Durham's coming in the fifth.  They scored three of those runs with two outs when a Cole Figueroa triple plated two, and Mahtook followed that with a triple of his own to score Figueroa.  Justin Christian led the offense with three singles.  The teams combined to strike out 33 times.  Nathan Karns struggled again, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks in five innings with four of those strikeouts, and Adam Liberatore struck out four in two scoreless innings.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (16-9)

Montgomery outhit Jacksonville 13-7, but the bullpen faltered late in a 4-3 loss to the Suns.  11 of those hits were singles, and none of them came with runners in scoring position.  All three runs were scored in separate innings.  An inning after the Biscuits tied the game at three, Bryce Stowell allowed a solo home run to J.T. Realmuto to put Jacksonville back on top, and Montgomery failed to score in the ninth despite putting the tying run on base.

Ryan Brett had a great game, collecting five hits and finishing a home run shy of the cycle.  He got the scoring started in the first when he singled and came home to score on a Cameron Seitzer sac fly.  Brett would drive in the final two Biscuit runs.  Joey Rickard had three hits, and Seitzer had two in addition to his sac fly.  Starter Matt Neil allowed three runs on four hits and a walk in four innings with five strikeouts, and Jim Patterson struck out four in two scoreless innings of relief.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (10-14)

Charlotte gave up four home runs in their 7-3 loss to St. Lucie.  The Stone Crabs fell behind 2-0 after four innings, but in the fifth, a run scoring Andrew Toles groundout and Leonardo Reginatto RBI bunt single tied the game.  That tie lasted all of three batters when the Mets went up for good, first getting an RBI double and then a two run homer to extend their lead to 5-2.  While they hit four homers, Charlotte only collected six total hits, including two each from Reginatto and Maxx Tissenbaum.

Bruedlin Suero allowed three of those home runs and was saddled with the loss, but it was done in relief; Jeff Ames made his first appearance since April 12th, allowing one run on four hits and two walks in three innings with two strikeouts.  Six of St. Lucie's 10 hits were for extra bases.  Josh Sale was 0/2, but he did draw two walks.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (6-16)
