Farmers only: Not such a great start by Homer

Adam Rosales

Triple-A: Homer Bailey gave up 9 more hits, but Jon Adkins blew up in the ninth, allowing 3 runs in Louisville's 7-6 loss. Adam Rosales was 3 for 5 with a homer, continuing his conquest of the minor leagues, and Wilkin Castillo moved to 3rd base and collected a couple hits. Justin Lehr threw two strong innings, and despite the loss, the Bats gained ground on the playoffs thanks to Toledo's loss. Their magic number is now 2.

Devin Mesoraco

Double-A: Danny Dorn had 2 hits and Justin Turner was 2 for 5 with a double in Chattanooga's 5-4 loss. Ben Jukich gave up 3 runs in 5 innings, and Sean Watson took the loss.

Low A: Devin Mesoraco went 1 for 4 with a homer in Dayton's 4-1 win. Neftali Soto had a single, a double and 2 RBIs, Zach Cozart doubled and Mike McKennon went 2 for 4 but was homerless. 3 strikeouts in 3 innings for Jeff Jeffords.

Rookie leagues: Tony Brown had 2 doubles and David Sappelt had a double and a triple, but Billings lost 19-5. 3 doubles for Byron Wiley, and Josh Ravin allowed 2 earned runs but struck out 4 in his 3-inning appearance, his first since his demotion. ... Still no starting pitchers for the G-Reds, who lost 13-2. ... Juan Duran was 0 for 3 with a walk in the D-Reds' 4-1 win.
