Wednesday night, Brent Honeywell makes his Triple-A debut, and it'll be on MiLB.TV.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (8-4)

Durham scored five unanswered runs in its 11-inning, 6-5 win over Indianapolis. With the bases loaded and none out in the seventh, Jake Bauers and Willy Adames hit consecutive sacrifice flies to start the Bulls' comeback. An inning later, Cade Gotta's two-run triple, aided by an error, tied the score. In the 11th, Casey Gillaspie's RBI single gave them their first lead since the first inning. Starter Chih-Wei Hu did not have his best night, charged with five runs on eight hits in five-plus innings, but the bullpen picked him up by limiting Indianapolis' bats over the rest of the game.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (7-5)

Justin Williams' two-run home run was the difference in Montgomery's 6-4 win over Jackson. With Michael Russell on second in the ninth, Williams' second homer of the season broke the 4-4 tie, and Kyle Winkler got out of his own jam in the ninth to record the save. Williams drove in three runs. Starter Hunter Wood allowed three runs in the third inning, but he hung in there to deliver the minimum quality start with four strikeouts, five hits and a walk.

Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (4-9)

A pitchers' duel eventually turned into a rout in Charlotte's 10-1 win over Daytona. Fans were treated to a scoreless deadlock through five innings, but Ryan Boldt's two-out double in the sixth scored Dalton Kelly to get the Stone Crabs on the board. An inning later, they really broke out. An error on Dalton Kelly's single helped clear the bases, and Boldt later hit a grand slam in what became an eight-run seventh. Boldt had four hits and drove in six runs. In his first start of the season, Tyler Brashears dominated, striking out seven in six scoreless innings of work.

Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (6-6)

Bowling Green was shut out for the second straight game in an 8-0 loss to Lake County. Unlike Monday's 1-0 defeat, Tuesday's game was not close. After starter Kenny Rosenberg struck out the side in the first inning, it took just two Captains batters in the second to give them a 2-0 lead on their way to a three-run inning. Rosenberg was charged with six runs -- five earned -- in 4 1/3 innings. All six Hot Rods hits were singles, and they committed four errors.
