Rays prospects and minor leagues: Arcia beats old organization

Fort Myers will rue the day its parent club traded Oswaldo Arcia

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

If you missed the update on Adrian Rondon, here it is:

Triple-A Durham Bulls (54-66)

Justin Marks pitched well, and he was backed by three home runs in Durham's 10-2 win over Charlotte. After Casey Gillaspie doubled home the first run of the game in the fourth, Curt Casali immediately followed with a three-run home run. Former Bull Jason Bourgeois doubled in two off Marks, but home runs from Johnny Field and Richie Shaffer put the game out of reach. Marks struck out eight and allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in seven innings.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (27-20)

Montgomery rode three early home runs to a 7-5 win over Mobile. Kean Wong led off the game with his fifth homer of the year to continue to extend his career high, and Jake DePew did the same an inning later. In the third, Patrick Leonard doubled with two outs, and Justin Williams followed with a two-run shot. The BayBears scored three off Chih-Wei Hu in the fourth, but DePew drove in two more runs in a three-run fifth to put the game out of reach. Hu struck out six and allowed three runs in five innings.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (25-21)

Oswaldo Arcia got revenge on some minor leaguers in his old organization in Charlotte's 2-0 win over Fort Myers. The game was scoreless until there were two outs in the eighth. After Andrew Velazquez walked to extend the inning, Arcia socked a two-run dinger that accounted for the only runs of the game. Both Arcia and Logan Morrison had two-hit games. Brad Schreiber got his first start (presumably) because of rain in the area and pitched two scoreless innings, and Greg Harris shut down the Miracle the rest of the way, striking out five and only allowing a pair of hits and a walk over the final seven frames.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (31-15)

Bowling Green fell behind 7-0, got within striking distance and then got blown out in a 13-5 loss to Fort Wayne. Tyler Brashears got crushed for five runs in the first and seven over 2 1/3 innings, but the Hot Rods chipped away, getting one in the third, and two each in the fifth and sixth. After Armando Basardo worked out of trouble to pitch a scoreless sixth, he allowed six runs in the seventh, and first baseman Kewby Meyer had to finish the game on the mound.

Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (31-21)

Spencer Moran pitched a nice game in Hudson Valley's 6-3 win over Connecticut. He allowed an unearned run in the first and a two-run homer in the sixth, but in the interim middle innings, the only batter to reach base against him did so on an error. He finished with three runs -- two earned -- allowed on two hits and a walk in six innings with four strikeouts. Garrett Whitley's two-run double in the fourth gave the Renegades the lead for good, but a run-scoring balk and RBI single from Ryan Boldt in the sixth didn't hurt.

Rookie Princeton Rays (24-23)

Negative game scores are uncommon, but Edrick Agosto managed to achieve it in Princeton's 9-5 loss to Burlington. Trek Stemp's two-run double in the second capped a three-run inning that gave Agosto a 3-1 lead, but he soon melted down. Burlington hammered three home runs in a six-run inning, and Agosto was out after three, having allowed eight runs. Devin Davis' ninth-inning home run, his first of the season, was too little, too late.

Rookie Gulf Coast League Rays (18-23)

The GCL Rays game was suspended.
