I don't know what it is with the MiLB site these last two nights, but it has denied everyone a full report again today. See Bowling Green's note below. I'm sure in the five hours between when I wrote this and when it gets posted everything will be fine, but I don't have time to sit around for them to fix their mistakes.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (39-28)

Durham was postponed.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (33-32)

Ryne Stanek struggled in Montgomery's 6-2 loss to Biloxi. The first run of the game scored on a passed ball, but Stanek was in trouble all night, culminating in a four-run fourth inning the Shuckers used to put the game away. Stanek finished with five runs -- four earned -- allowed on five hits and five walks in five innings. Dayron Varona was 1-for-4 in his Biscuits debut.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (44-22)

Charlotte fought back from an early 5-0 deficit but came up short in a 7-6 loss to Lakeland in 10 innings. Starter Eduar Quinonez was roughed up, allowing five runs in just 2 1/3 innings, but the bullpen was able to settle the game down. Yoel Araujo's two-run homer in the fourth pulled the Stone Crabs within one, and his RBI single in the eighth tied the game at six. Isaac Gil got the first two outs in the 10th before surrendering the go-ahead run, and Charlotte couldn't score Willy Adames from third with two outs in its half of the 10th.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (37-29)

Bowling Green's game has literally disappeared from the scoreboard as I write this. I know they lost though.
