Rays prospects and minor leagues: Adames goes deep twice

Willy Adames' breakout season continues with his first career multi-homer game

Willy Adames already eclipsed his home run total from 2015

Does anyone have any information on Henry Centeno? He has some impressive stats so far, and I can't say I know anything about him.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (17-24)

Durham was unable to erase a first-inning deficit in its 4-2 loss to Gwinnett. After Atlanta prospect Ozzie Albies led off the game with a homer, Gwinnett added two more runs against Adam Wilk. Wilk allowed another run an inning later and finished with four runs -- two earned -- allowed on seven hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts. The top three Bulls in the lineup combined to reach base nine times, but they only scored once as the team stranded 12 on base.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (21-17)

Willy Adames homered twice, but it was not enough as Montgomery melted down in an 11-inning, 9-8 loss to Jacksonville. The Biscuits held a comfortable 8-3 lead in the ninth, but Brad Schreiber allowed the tying run to come to the plate with just one out, and Kyle Bird was unable to put out the fire. Adames drove in three in the first two-home run game of his career, and Casey Gillaspie and Jake DePew also went deep.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (20-21)

A pair of home runs weren't enough in Charlotte's 4-3 loss to Daytona. Alec Sole's third homer started a two-run fifth inning that put the Stone Crabs up 2-0, but the Tortugas took the lead and held it thanks to a three-run seventh. Chris Pike allowed all three of those runs in six innings after another rehab appearance from Brad Boxberger. The closer struck out one in a scoreless inning, yielding a hit and a walk.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (22-17)

Henry Centeno continued his unbelievable season in Bowling Green's 6-2 win over West Michigan. With five more scoreless innings, he lowered his ERA to 0.68, and he struck out eight while allowing just four hits and a walk. He narrowly didn't get his fifth win, but Manny Sanchez's two-run double and Peter Maris' sacrifice fly gave him a three-run lead before his final inning of work.
