Wednesday may have been one of the best days for individual performances in organization history. There's a lot to check out.

Not on that list, though, is Beloit's leadoff hitter from Wednesday's loss to Bowling Green. He's having a nice season, and I recommend checking out who this player is.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (35-26)

Leonardo Reginatto threw three scoreless innings in Durham's 9-8 win over Lehigh Valley in 12 innings. The Bulls were forced into a bullpen game, and a slugfest ended up with the infielder on the mound for the first time in his professional career. While many of Durham's actual pitchers struggled, Reginatto allowed just two singles and earned the win when Taylor Motter hit a walk-off single. C.J. Riefenhauser was the only non-infielder to not be charged with a run, and Richie Shaffer's two-run homer was key in a four-run fifth.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (29-30)

Blake Snell could not find the strike zone, but he limited the damage in Montgomery's 3-2 win over Mississippi in game one. He walked four and allowed five hits in five innings, but he struck out three and only allowed one run. Cameron Seitzer's RBI hit gave the Biscuits a 1-0 lead in the first inning, and Hector Guevara's two-out double in the fourth provided the deciding run.

Bradin Hagens shut down Mississippi in Montgomery's game two 8-0 win. He struck out four and scattered five hits over five scoreless innings, and the offense supported him with a pair of four-run innings. Mississippi errors aided the Biscuits in both instances. Seitzer's two-RBI hit in the second capped the first big inning, and back-to-back triples by Juniel Querecuto and Powell in the fourth kick-started the next.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (40-19)

Charlotte banged out 19 hits in its 12-6 win over Dunedin. The Stone Crabs initially went up 4-0 in a second inning capped by Kean Wong's two-run double, and they went on to score in each of the final five innings to hold off Dunedin. Jake Bauers led off the fifth with his sixth home run, and Dayron Varona hit his first stateside homer in the ninth. Buddy Borden pitched the bare-minimum quality start, allowing three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and two walks in six innings.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (34-25)

Bowling Green scored eight unanswered runs in its 12-4 win over Beloit. After the Snappers tied the game at four in the top of the seventh, the Hot Rods responded with five in their half. Casey Gillaspie and Bralin Jackson each drove in runs with a double, and Mac James plated a pair with a single. For good measure, they scored three more in the eighth. Starter Chris Pike was chased after allowing two runs in three innings, and Kyle Bird followed with two runs allowed in four frames. Justin Williams hit his fifth home run of the season.
