With at least 10 innings scheduled for Monday and games on Tuesday and Wednesday, you have a chance to catch Charlotte in Dunedin this week.
Adrian Rondon got a lot of attention for his three-homer game in his second game this season, but he has been pretty good all season. He was 0-for-4 Sunday, but he has drawn an unintentional walk in four straight games. In 13 July games, he's batting .292 with a .358 on-base percentage and .500 slugging percentage.
Triple-A Durham Bulls (42-54)
Syracuse got hits from each of the first two hitters of the game, but it did not help in Durham's 8-4 win over the Chiefs. Jaime Schultz got out of that jam, and J.P. Arencibia followed with a leadoff home run to start the second inning. Arencibia then drove in two with a fourth-inning double, and he homered again in the eighth to add insurance. Schultz struck out eight but allowed a run on five hits in 3 2/3 innings. All three runs the Chiefs scored off the Bulls bullpen were unearned.
Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (14-10)
Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (12-9)
Charlotte's game was suspended in the ninth inning.
Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (14-9)
Back-to-back-to-back home runs for Bowling Green jumpstarted its comeback in a 7-3 win over Beloit. Down 3-0 in the sixth, Kewby Meyer, Manny Sanchez and Jake Cronenworth hit solo home runs, and the game was tied in the blink of an eye. Meyer and Cronenworth reached base in the eighth, and Kevin Padlo's RBI single gave the Hot Rods their first lead before Brandon Lowe and Brett Sullivan tacked on insurance. Starter Jose Mujica allowed all three Snappers runs, but he lasted seven innings.
Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (17-13)
Travis Ott continued to dominate the New York-Penn League in Hudson Valley's 4-1 win over Brooklyn. The Cyclones were only able to score a run due to a pair of Jim Haley errors in the second, and their 1-0 lead was brief. With two outs in the home half of the inning, Jose Rojas tied the game with a single, and Bill Pujols drove in two with a double. With that run support, Ott had no trouble putting away Brooklyn, striking out six and only allowing the unearned run in six innings.
Princeton's inability to limit the damage cost it in an 11-6 loss to Elizabethton. Trailing only 5-1 entering the ninth, Alex Estrella lot the game get away for Princeton. Elizabethton socked a pair of homers in a six-run inning, meaning Princeton's five-run ninth was not nearly enough. Starter Hector Lopez allowed four runs in five innings.
