With the way Erasmo Ramirez is pitching lately, they may as well traded Matt Moore anyway.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (39-27)

Richie Shaffer homered again in Durham's 6-3 win over Indianapolis. J.P. Arencibia's two-run single in the first put the Bulls up 2-0, but after Indy tied the game at three, Durham got another two-out, two-run hit, this time from Corey Brown in the sixth. Shaffer's eighth homer for the Bulls came in the seventh. In another bullpen game, Jordan Norberto struck out six and allowed a run in 3 2/3 innings, and Jim Miller was charged with two runs.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (33-31)

Just one bad inning sunk Blake Snell in Montgomery's 4-2 loss to Pensacola. After a one-out walk, Snell allowed a two-run homer, and a Tommy Coyle error led to another run later in the second. Snell finished with three runs -- two earned -- allowed on six hits and two walks in five innings with eight strikeouts. The Biscuits got both of their runs in the seventh when Justin O'Conner doubled home a run and scored on Johnny Field's sacrifice fly.

The Biscuits were eliminated from first-half contention.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (43-20)

Charlotte was rained out.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (37-27)

After five scoreless innings, Bowling Green collapsed in its 7-3 loss to Wisconsin. Henry Centeno had to work his way out of some trouble over the first five frames, but the wheels came off with one out in the sixth. After two singles, he served up a three-run home run to break the 0-0 tie, and the Timber Rattlers added three more runs with two outs. Nick Ciuffo's sacrifice fly and Cristian Toribio's two-run double gave the Hot Rods three right back in the bottom half of the inning, but they could not get closer.
