Rays down on the farm July 28: Bellatti has rough outing

Andrew Bellatti has had an impressive season, but Monday night's appearance was forgettable

Rain and some scheduled off days had Monday's schedule looking pretty empty.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (51-52)

Durham was steamrolled by Braves prospect Tyrell Jenkins in its 5-0 loss to Gwinnett. The Bulls only had two hits, and Jenkins lasted eight innings. Durham starter Bradin Hagens kept his offense in the game, only allowing a run on four hits in five innings, but Andrew Bellatti was rocked for four runs in 2 1/3 innings.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (18-11)

Montgomery was off.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (12-17)

Charlotte was postponed.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (16-15)

Bowling Green was off.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (18-17)

Hudson Valley was off.

Rookie Princeton Rays (19-13)

Princeton erased a 4-0 deficit and held on for a 7-6 win over Bluefield. After Brock Burke allowed four runs -- three earned --  on seven hits in five innings, Kewby Meyer cleared the bases with a double, and Zacrey Law tied the game with a single an inning later before scoring on a groundout. Bill Pujols singled in a pair of big insurance runs in the eighth.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (6-20)

The GCL Rays didn't play.
