USA TODAY Sports

Diamondbacks star pitching prospect Archie Bradley struck out seven Jacksonville batters, while Greenboro won on a three-run walk off homer in extra-innings.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
L 1-6 @ Round Rock Express

Full Box Score

Jake Smolinski, LF: 3-for-4

Jared Rogers, SP: 2.0 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 2 SO, HR

New Orleans took an early lead in the top off the second, but Jared Rogers soon imploded, giving up six runs in only two innings pitched. His season ERA rose to 6.18.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 3-9 @ Mobile BayBears

Full Box Score

Jacob Realmuto, C: 1-for-3, BB
Noah Perio, 2B: 1-for-3, R, BB

Jay Jackson, SP: 5.0 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 6 ER, BB, 4 SO, HR

The Suns faced one of the most fearsome arms in the minors yesterday, top Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley. The Suns were held scoreless for seven innings, until poor defense by the BayBears allowed them to score three runs. By that time it was too late, as Jay Jackson's had put Jacksonville in too deep a hole to win.

As June winds down, there has been some noticeable improvement from Jacob Realmuto. After batting .194/.300/.224 in May, he has hit .299/.337/.377 this month.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
W 11-2 vs. Fort Myers Miracle

Full Box Score

Brent Keys, LF: 3-for-5, 2 R
Austin Barnes, DH: 2-for-3, 2 R, BB, SO

Jose Urena, SP: 6.0 IP, 5 H, R, 3 BB, 6 SO

Urena walked more than one batter for the first time in almost two months. While his control has remained mostly consistent, he began the year not striking out many batters. There has been a strong upwards trend in June towards more swing-and-miss stuff, and his ERA for the month stands at 0.87.

Twins prospect Byron Buxton went hit-less in his third game with Fort Myers. Buxton is thought by many to be the top hitting prospect in baseball.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 9-6 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

Full Box Score

Matt Yuengel, DH: 3-for-6, 2 R, 2B

Ramon Del Orbe, SP: 6.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO, HR

Greensboro's four hour slug-fest against Delmarva involved many exciting twists and turns. Shorebirds starter Parker Birdwell struck out seven batters and walked only one, yet the Grasshoppers scored five runs off him. Tied at five after five innings played, the bullpens kept the game tied until Delmarva took the lead on a sac fly in the top of the ninth.

Thankfully for Greensboro, Dennis Torres blew the save, pushing the game into extra innings. Blake Barber then hit a walk-off three run homer in the twelfth to end the game.
