Johnny Field had an RBI triple in an 8-5 loss

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

In an ironic twist, the second half of Bowling Green's doubleheader (which was a makeup from yesterday's game) was also postponed for a future date.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (19-29)

Despite putting runners in scoring position in the eight and ninth innings, the Bulls couldn't make a full comeback, falling to the Toledo Mud Huns, 5-4. Luke Maile had a two-run double in the top of the fourth to tie the game, but the Mud Hens took a one-run lead in the bottom of the inning. Juniel Querecuto had a RBI single to tie the game again in the sixth to tie the game again, but once more the Mud Hens struck back in the bottom of the inning. Nick Franklin hit a solo home run to bring the game within one run in the seventh, but the Bulls couldn't manage another run to tie the game. Blake Snell had a rough outing, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings and taking his fourth loss of the season.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (24-21)

Chih-Wei Hu gave up seven runs in 3 2/3 innings, getting his second loss of the season by an 8-5 deficit to the Jackson Generals. Hu gave up five hits and walked two while striking out two. Johnny Field had an RBI triple in the bottom of the seventh for his 29th RBI of the year. Jake Bauers and Kean Wong had an RBI each, while Braxton Lee knocked two doubles. Willy Adames went 3-for-4 while hitting a double and scoring two runs.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (23-26)

Charlotte had nothing going for them, losing a 2-0 pitching duel to the St. Lucie Mets. Benton Moss threw six innings of two-run ball, but took his fifth loss of the season as the Stone Crabs gave him zero offensive support. Riley Unroe and Justin Williams were the only Stone Crabs to manage a hit. Chirs Flexen of the Mets threw 6 1/3 innings while allowing only one hit in his third win of the year.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (24-22)

Bowling Green managed to tie up their game at 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth before giving up two runs in the top of the seventh that they couldn't recover from, falling to the West Michigan Whitecaps, 6-4. Taylor Hawkins went 4 2/3 innings, allowing three runs -- one earned -- and walking four, but only allowed three hits and struck out four. Hawkins earned a no-decision, with Bryan Bonnell receiving his first loss of the season after giving up the two runs in the top of the seventh. Zacrey Law had a sacrifice fly, RBI single, and a double to lead Bowling Green's offense. Jake Cronenworth and Angel Moreno also had an RBI each.
