Hudson Valley will host the New York-Penn League All-Star Game, so the Renegades will be well-represented. In addition to the coaching staff which includes long-time Bulls reliever Craig Albernaz, pitchers Travis Ott, Adrian Navas and Joe Serrapica, infielders Nathaniel Lowe, Jim Haley and Miles Mastrobuoni, and outfielder Angel Perez were all named to the North squad.

Adrian Rondon was still out of Princeton's lineup Tuesday.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (53-64)

Hank Conger's solo home run was the only offense Durham could manage in a 3-1 loss to Pawtucket. Conger had two of Durham's five hits, as did Matt Duffy. His third homer with the Bulls came when they were already down 3-0. Austin Pruitt allowed three runs, all of which came on a pair of longballs, in seven innings.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (25-20)

Montgomery was not particularly competitive in its 7-0 loss to Tennessee. Yonny Chirinos allowed five runs on 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings, and Hunter Wood made his anticipated return to the Biscuits, allowing two runs in 3 1/3 innings. Justin Williams had two of their six hits, including a double.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (23-19)

After a string of rough outings, Chris Pike pitched well in Charlotte's Game 1 win over Jupiter by a 5-0 score. Pike allowed 19 runs -- 13 earned -- in his last five starts, but on Tuesday, he was in fine form, striking out three and allowing only six hits in his first career shutout. Nick Ciuffo's groundout plated the only run the Stone Crabs needed, but Oswaldo Arcia's two-run triple in the third didn't hurt.

The second game of the doubleheader was postponed.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (30-14)

Manny Sanchez's three-run home run and Blake Bivens' solid outing led Bowling Green to a 5-2 win over West Michigan. Sanchez's 12th dinger of the season gave the Hot Rods a 3-1 lead in the second, and Bivens took over from there. He allowed just a run on two hits and two walks in six innings with six strikeouts. Over his last seven starts with Bowling Green, he has a 2.11 ERA in 42 2/3 innings with 45 strikeouts and 14 walks.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (30-20)

After falling behind 5-1 in the first inning, Hudson Valley stormed back for a 13-5 win over Williamsport. Eduard Rosillo allowed all of those runs, but he managed to hang in there and last four innings before Porter Clayton and Joe Serrapica shut down the Crosscutters. Garrett Whitley doubled in a run in the fourth and scored the tying run on Ryan Boldt's double, and his first home run of the season, a two-run shot in the ninth, added insurance.

Rookie Princeton Rays (23-21)

For the third time this season, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homered against Princeton in its 9-1 loss to Bluefield. However, it was Javier Monzon's grand slam in the third, his first of two home runs in the game, that really blew it open. Starter Sam Long was charged with three runs in 2 1/3 innings, and Eric Diomartich did not fare any better with six runs -- five earned -- allowed in 3 2/3 innings.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (16-23)

Jonathan Arrowood's eighth-inning single lifted the GCL Rays to a 5-4 win over the GCL Red Sox in Game 1 of their doubleheader. Jesus Sanchez, who homered earlier in the game, led off the extra inning with a single, moved up to second on a sacrifice bunt and scored the winning run on Arrowood's hit. Kevin Santiago also homered, and Justin O'Conner doubled and struck out three times. Starter Nicholas Padilla allowed two runs in two innings, and Angel Rodriguez allowed a pair of runs in four innings of relief.

The GCL Rays continued rolling in Game 2, earning a 9-1 win. The GCL Red Sox struck first with a two-out run in the first inning, but it was all downhill from there. They would not get another hit. The GCL Rays executed a double steal to tie the game in the third, and Joey Roach's two-run triple, in his pro debut, an inning later gave them the lead. In the fifth, Jose Tonton's three-run homer opened the game up. Starter Easton McGee allowed a run in five innings of work.
