Farmers only: Better wear a helmet and some chain mail if you're planning on taking in a Peoria game any time soon

Triple-A: Adam Rosales had a double and his 8th homer and Josh Roenicke got a strikeout and induced a double play to escape an 8th-inning jam as the Bats held on 4-3. Ryan Hanigan went 3 for 4 to push his average up over .300.

Double-A: Chattanooga lost 3-2 and won 3-1. Chris Valaika went 3 for 4 in Game 1, and Drew Stubbs had 2 hits. Danny Dorn (14) and Justin Turner (6) homered in Game 2 as Pedro Viola and Ramon Geronimo struck out 10 in 6 innings and allowed just 1 hit.

High A:  Juan Francisco was 2 for 5 with a homer and 5 RBIs as Sarasota won 17-11. Chris Heisey (3 for 6) and Jacob Kahaulelio (4 for 6) also homered, and Eddy Rodriguez went deep twice for 5 RBIs. Todd Frazier was left out of the hit parade, going 0 for 4.

Low A: Read more about the brawl here, but it was an ugly scene. In short, Zach Cozart had to leave after getting beaned, Kyle Lotzkar's 2-strikeout first inning was wasted because he couldn't continue to pitch after the hour-long delay and Peoria starter Julio Castillo threw at 2 guys' heads (nailing Cozart), broke the leg of his own second baseman and hurled a fastball into the stands, injuring a fan. When that mess was over, Dayton won 6-5 thanks to 3 hits from Brandon Waring, 2 from Devin Mesoraco and a nice relief appearance by Juan Rafael. Also, kudos to Brandon Menchaca for jumping on Castillo after the idiot threw as hard as he could at a defenseless and totally innocent fan. That's maybe the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in a baseball game. (And I think this comment says it better than I can.)

Rookies: Billings won 17-2 thanks to, among many other things, 7 RBIs from Andrew Means. It's hard to underplay 17 runs by 2 teams in one organization, but that melee did the trick. ... The D-Reds won 4-3.
