Triple-A: The Bats' magic number is 3 after beating Columbus 7-5, their 7th straight win and 15th in 16 August games. Adam Rosales was 2 for 5 with a double in his first game back, and Josh Roenicke gave up 2 runs in the ninth before Daniel Ray Herrera shut things down.
High A: Juan Francisco and Todd Frazier doubled, but Sarasota was drilled 15-2. Logan Parker had a 2-RBI single, and Zach Stewart had two strikeouts in his perfect inning.
Low A: Devin Mesoraco was 2 for 4 with a homer, Neftali Soto had 3 hits and Mike McKennon homered for the 3rd straight game in Dayton's 9-8 loss. Brandon Waring added 2 hits.
Rookie leagues: Billings' game against the Casper Ghosts was postponed for the 4th straight day. ... Jerry Gil allowed 4 hits and a run in 2 innings, taking his 2nd loss as the G-Reds lost 4-2. I don't know if this pitching thing is right for him.
