Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 6-5 vs. Iowa Cubs
Jared Rogers, SP: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 2 SO
In typical Kyle Jensen fashion, Jensen has been all-or-nothing in Triple-A. He has a .220 Batting Average and .340 Isolated Power (ISO). Yesterday's extra-base hits accounted for his 21st double and 20th home run this year.
Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 0-3 vs. Mobile BayBears
Robert Morey, SP: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, SO
A tough day at the plate for the Suns resulted in a shutout defeat, as the offense left nine runners on base. They collected only three hits, though six batters reached base on balls.
Guess who is outperforming Christian Yelich in Double-A now? After a slow May start, Jake Marisnick has shot up to a .291/.360/.491 line, while Yelich has fallen .256/.335/.506.
High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers

Ramon Del Orbe, SP: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 SO
Ramon Del Orbe got off to a bumpy start, giving Lexington an early lead. The Grasshoppers offense battled back, piling on nine hits and four walks to take the lead. Sean Donatello, Chipper Smith, and Frankie Reed all delivered strong bullpen performances.

Austin Dean, LF: 1-for-3, R, BB, SO

Jarlin Garcia, SP: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, ER, 3 BB, 6 SO
Colby Suggs, RP: 0.1 IP
Avery Romero has completed just a little over three weeks of baseball, but already he seems to have justified his spot on the Fish Stripes Top Prospects list. He hit his seventh double, raising his batting line to .377/.437/.506.
