In his six-game hitting streak, Joe McCarthy is batting 13-of-25 with three doubles and a triple, and he has three strikeouts and two walks in that span.

Credit to FreeZo for the nickname. You must all do your part to make sure it sticks.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (67-67)

Matt Moore did not strike out every batter in Durham's 5-2 loss to Charlotte. Moore ended up with a quality start, allowing three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts. Corey Brown drove in the Bulls' first run in the seventh with an RBI single, and Luke Maile drew a bases-loaded walk later in the inning.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (38-23)

Jacob Faria dominated another lineup in Montgomery's 3-1 win over Mobile. For the second straight start, Faria struck out double-digit batters, this time punching out 13 over eight innings and only allowing one run on a solo home run in the first inning. The Biscuits got all of their runs on home runs from Tyler Goeddel and Dayron Varona in the third inning.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (21-37)

German Marquez shrugged off a slow start and pitched well in Charlotte's 4-2 win over Jupiter. After allowing a run i each of the first two innings, Marquez kept the Hammerheads off the board the rest of the way and struck out six in a career-best eight innings. Down 2-1 in the sixth, the Stone Crabs got a double steal from Jace Conrad and Justin Williams, and both scored on Yoel Araujo's sacrifice fly when the ball was then thrown away. Casey Gillaspie was 1-for-5 with a couple strikeouts.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (28-31)

Jose Mujica was not at his best in Bowling Green's 4-1 loss to Dayton. After throwing three innings fairly easily, the game fell apart with one out in the fourth. He allowed five straight batters to reach, capped by a two-run double to finish the three-run inning. He finished with four runs -- three earned -- allowed on eight hits in six innings. Grant Kay singled in Cade Gotta in the fifth for the Hot Rods' lone run.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (34-32)

Hudson Valley blew open the game late in its 10-3 win over Staten Island. Already winning 4-1, the Renegades tacked on a run in the ninth when Staten Island could not field a sacrifice bunt, and they went on to score five runs before an out was recorded. Joe McCarthy singled in a pair, and they scored their last run on a double play. Starter Angel Yepez allowed a run on six hits in five innings, and Garrett Whitley was 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Rookie Princeton Rays (35-29)

Brett Sullivan homered twice in Princeton's 7-2 win over Johnson City. Sullivan's first homer completed a back-to-back set with David Olmedo-Barrera in the fourth to extend Princeton's lead to 4-1, and he hit his 11th of the season in the ninth for insurance. Starter Brock Burke allowed two runs on four hits in five innings, and Ty Jackson wrapped up the game with three strikeouts in two scoreless innings.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (16-43)

The GCL Rays were close until they weren't in their 10-2 loss to the GCL Orioles. Ryan Caldwell tripled and scored the first run in the opening inning, but Justin Marsden promptly allowed two runs in the top of the second. Their deficit was just one for several innings, but the GCL Orioles tacked on three runs in the seventh and five more in the ninth before Caldwell scored the GCL Rays' second run in the ninth.
