With a big leaguer on the mound, Durham continued its winning streak and is tied for the International League wild card.

I don’t know why Twitter embeds stopped working again.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (74-62)

Durham earned a 10-inning, 6-5 win over Gwinnett. Tyler Glasnow made his anticipated return to the mound with a scoreless inning. RBI hits from Jake Cronenworth and Daniel Robertson in the fourth gave the Bulls a 5-0 lead, but the Stripers chipped away, tying the game with three runs in the eighth. With two outs and the bases loaded in the ninth, Michael Perez delivered a walk-off single. After Glasnow was finished, Arturo Reyes allowed two runs in four innings.

DH Nate Lowe: 0-for-1, 4 BB, 1 K (.929)
SS Daniel Robertson: 3-for-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K (.701)

Durham’s site offers this recap.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (42-22)

Taylor Walls and Grant Kay homered, but it wasn’t enough in Montgomery’s Game 1, 3-2 loss to Pensacola. The Biscuits only had four hits total, and the Blue Wahoos also hit a pair of solo homers. Kenny Rosenberg allowed two runs in five innings.

The Biscuits earned a split with a 2-1 win in Game 2. A first-inning homer gave Pensacola the lead, but Montgomery went ahead in the fourth on Jim Haley’s two-run single. Aside from the home run, Joe Ryan was sharp, striking out 11 in 4 23 innings.

Charlotte’s season is over.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (41-25)

Ruben Cardenas burned his old club in Bowling Green’s 1-0 win over Lake County. A week after hitting a go-ahead, ninth-inning single against the Captains, his solo home run was decisive Friday.

Hudson Valley was shut out by Staten Island, 2-0. John Doxakis struck out four in four scoreless innings, and Christopher Gau struck out seven in 3 13 hitless innings out of the bullpen. However, he was still charged with the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. Each team had just four hits.
