MLB: All Star Game-Futures Game Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Luis Rengifo, acquired in the minor Ryan Garton trade with Seattle, already seems comfortable in his new organization. In his first couple games with Bowling Green, he’s reached base six times and stole a base.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (72-45)

Johnny Field’s walkoff single finally broke the ice in Durham’s 11-inning, 1-0 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The teams combined for just nine hits, and the biggest two came in the 11th. Kean Wong led off with a double, and after a pair of unproductive outs, Field delivered the winning hit. Mike Broadeay made a start and struck out three in two perfect innings, and Chih-Wei Hu struck out five in 2 1/3 frames.

With one out and a runner on, Emilio Gustave started a string of four straight hits that made it a 3-2 game. Rene Pinto then doubled in two more runs.
