Rays down on the farm August 4: Guerrieri settles in with Montgomery

Taylor Guerrieri was much better in his second start with the Biscuits

There probably wasn't any doubt this would happen

Blake Snell and Brent Honeywell are scheduled to pitch today. We'll see if the weather cooperates.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (53-56)

Matt Andriese rebounded in Durham's 4-3 win over Indianapolis. After allowing four earned runs in five innings his last time out, this start he allowed just a run in five innings on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts. With the bases loaded in a 1-1 tie, the Bulls scored three runs in the fourth. Joey Rickard singled home J.P. Arencibia, another run scored on Hak-Ju Lee's sacrifice fly, and an error allowed them to score another. Desmond Jennings was 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (21-15)

Leonardo Reginatto's 11th-inning single broke the scoreless deadlock in Montgomery's 1-0 win over Mississippi. With one out, Jake Bauers hit his 10th double with the Biscuits and then scored on Reginatto's hit to right. Taylor Guerrieri was much better in his second start with Montgomery, though he was long gone when the game was finally decided. He struck out three in five scoreless innings and scattered just two hits and a walk.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (16-18)

Charlotte was off.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (19-18)

Bowling Green was off.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (20-22)

Hudson Valley's comeback fell short in its 6-5 loss to Tri-Cities. Down 6-1, the Renegades scored individual runs in the fifth and sixth. With two outs in the ninth, Michael Russell singled home a pair to pull them within one, but Joe McCarthy struck out to end the game.

Rookie Princeton Rays (23-16)

Princeton was off.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (8-26)

The GCL Rays were suspended.
