High A: Juan Francisco was 3 for 5 with a triple and 4 RBIs as Sarasota rolled 10-2. Todd Frazier was 2 for 4 to push his average up to .300. And a nice start by Alexander Smit, who might have been overlooked in the prospect rankings.
Rookies: Tony Brown hit his 7th homer in 24 games as Billings won 9-3.
