Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs L 5-6 @ Oklahoma City RedHawks

Full Box Score

Josh Rodriguez, 3B: 2-for-5, 3B, HR (10), RBI
Jake Marisnick, CF: 2-for-4, SB (19)

Adam Conley, SP: 2.1 IP, 7 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 2 K

Adam Conley had a rough night in Oklahoma City on Tuesday in his second time facing the RedHawks. Conley has struggled in Triple-A, but that's not all that bad of a thing because it will give him time to slow down and work on the little things that he can do to find success. At the plate, Josh Rodriguez tripled and homered to lead the Zephyrs. Jake Marisnick also picked up his 19th steal of the season.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns L 2-3 vs. Chattanooga Lookouts

Full Box Score

Terrence Dayleg, 3B: 2-for-4
Brent Keys, RF: 1-for-3, BB, 2B, RBI

Jose Urena, SP: 7 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Jacksonville's lineup never really got going against Chattanooga Tuesday. One player who did have a nice night at the plate for the Suns was outfielder Brent Keys, who reached base twice. Keys has had a nightmare of a season in 2014 just one season removed from hitting .346 in Jupiter, so it's nice to see him start to get things going. On the mound for Jacksonville, Jose Urena pitched well enough to win. This marked his third consecutive start of seven or more innings pitched.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads L 1-4 @ Charlotte Stone Crabs

Full Box Score

Blake Barber, DH: 2-for-3

Brad Penny, SP: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Going into this game, I presume that the Hammerheads realized it would be a challenging game, as they would be facing Rays first-round pick Ryne Stanek. Unfortunately, the Hammerheads did not step up to this challenge and they were absolutely dominated by Stanek. This was a game to forget for the Hammerheads, who fall to 29-57 with the loss.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers L 2-12 (F/8) vs. Kannapolis Intimidators

Full Box Score

Austin Dean, LF: 2-for-3, HR (7), RBI

Cody Crabaugh, SP: 4 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Greensboro got blown out at home on Tuesday by Kannapolis. The silver lining from this game can be found in Austin Dean hitting his 7th HR of the year. Dean has now hit three homers in his last ten games and his seven bombs this season are more than he combined to hit in his first two professional seasons. Dean has come a very long ways since the Marlins took him in the 4th Round of the 2012 draft.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs

Game postponed due to rain.

GCL: GCL Marlins W 9-6 @ GCL Nationals

Full Box Score

Galvi Moscat, RF: 2-for-3, HR (1), 2 RBI
Justin Twine, SS: 2-for-3, 2B, 3B, 3 RBI

Steve Ames, SP: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

2014 43rd overall pick Justin Twine drove in three runs to lead the GCL Marlins over the Nationals. Twine, a raw prep athlete, doubled and tripled in just his fifteenth professional appearance. Unfortunately, Twine also committed his fifth error of the season, which doesn't bode well for his chances to remain at short in the future.
