Rays down on the farm July 11: Gillaspie goes on DL

Another Rays hitter is affected by an injury

At least it wasn't a hamate bone

This was reported days ago by Marc Topkin, but Casey GIllaspie broke a finger and is going to be out a bit.

Of course, I have waited so long to mention this that he will probably be back tomorrow.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (46-42)

Dylan Floro stopped the bleeding of his recent starts, but Durham still fell to Gwinnett by a 4-2 score. Floro still allowed 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings, but he limited the damage to one run and did not walk a batter. Gwinnett tacked on insurance runs against Jim Miller, and back-to-back solo homers from Taylor Motter and J.P. Arencibia in the ninth were not enough.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (8-6)

Jaime Schultz could not keep the ball in the park in Montgomery's 6-3 loss to Pensacola. Holding a 1-0 lead, Schultz allowed a leadoff homer in the fifth, and a grand slam later in the inning blew the game open. He allowed a third home run an inning later and finished with six runs allowed on seven hits and two walks in six innings with five strikeouts. Justin O'Conner hit his seventh home run for the Biscuits.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (5-11)

A four-run eighth lifted Charlotte to a 6-4 win over Brevard County. Down 4-2, the Stone Crabs took advantage of a couple errors to tie the game, and with the bases loaded, Jace Conrad hit a two-run infield single to put Charlotte ahead. German Marquez turned in one of his better starts of the season, scattering three hits and two walks over five scoreless innings with four strikeouts, but Jeff Ames was charged with three runs in 1 1/3 innings.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (8-8)

Hunter Wood struggled in Bowling Green's 4-3 loss to West Michigan. In his third start since returning to the rotation, he allowed two runs in back-to-back innings to put the Hot Rods in a 4-1 hole. He finished with four runs allowed on eight hits and two walks in 3 1/3 innings with four strikeouts. Bowling Green had the tying run in scoring position in the ninth after Riley Unroe's sacrifice fly pulled the Hot Rods within one, but Cristian Toribio popped out to end the game.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (10-10)

Poor defensive execution on a sacrifice bunt gave Hudson Valley a 6-5 win over Brooklyn in 12 innings. The Renegades put the first two runners on when Angel Moreno came up to the plate. He got the bunt down, but the Cyclones threw the ball away, allowing Cade Gotta to come home with the winning run. Starter Roel Ramirez was solid, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on five hits in six innings with four strikeouts and no walks, but Justin McCalvin allowed three runs -- two earned -- in an inning.

Rookie Princeton Rays (9-8)

Princeton melted down late in its 6-4 loss to Pulaski. Pulaski actually conceded Princeton's fourth run in the top of the ninth, but Armando Bastardo was unable to get the last three outs. He allowed a game-tying three-run homer three batters into the bottom of the ninth, and after walking a batter, he was replaced by Porter Clayton. Clayton got one out before allowing a walkoff home run.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (4-13)

The GCL Rays failed to make it three in a row with a 3-2 loss to the GCL Orioles. After Oscar Rojas tripled in the first, Adrian Rondon singled him in for a 1-0 lead, but Rondon would leave the game a couple innings later. Yael Regalado started and struck out three in two scoreless innings to start the game, but the game got away when Jose Disla allowed three runs in the fifth.
