Triple-A: Drew Stubbs tripled as the Bats lowered their magic number to clinching the International League West to 4, beating Columbus 4-2. Stubbs also doubled, and Adam Pettyjohn struck out 7 and won his 6th start in 7 games.
Double-A: Danny Dorn's grand slam highlighted an 8-run second inning as Chattanooga held on to win 8-7. It was Dorn's 19th homer of the season. After not giving up a run in his first 8 appearances, Ramon Geronimo has allowed 7 in his past 3 innings.
High A: Sarasota cracked just 4 hits in a 5-1 loss.
Low A: Zach Cozart had 2 hits and Brandon Waring and Neftali Soto doubled in Dayton's 4-3 win. Mike McKennon homered for the second straight day.
Other: Billings was postponed, the GCL Reds were off and the D-Reds haven't updated in a couple days. But here's a nice little read from Joe Kay (not John Fay or Jim Day) of The Associated Press on Yonder Alonso's decision to sign. Essentially, he had his independent league contract and his fall schedule at Miami in front of him when contemplating what to do and opted to hit the big leagues. But get this: Alex Rodriguez said Yonder could stay at his house -- but that he should sign with the Reds if possible. Assist, A-Rod. There's some other good stuff in that little story.
