I'd love to refer to where the Rays play as the "Tropic Thunderdome", except that would imply it was actually cool in some way...

There were some bad losses on the farm on Wednesday. Then there were some worse losses. There were no wins. New Hampshire had a 6-1 lead but Shane Dawson was left in too long and the bullpen added some gas to the fire. Casey Lawrence wasn't winning but the Bisons trailed 2-1 and Lawrence stayed in too long and again the bullpen added gas. Lansing's starter Jordan Romano left with a lead but, you guessed it, the bullpen coughed it up. Dunedin were no-hit through seven and ended with two infield hits. The GCL Jays lost the game and first place. Vancouver and Bluefield had routine losses.

There were lots of runs in the affiliates games on Sunday. It was tough to choose the three stars among the hitters while most of the pitchers did not stake a claim. Dickie Thon hit a couple of home runs and picked up a couple of the not so nice hits on his body. Dwight Smith had three hits and was a double short of the cycle. Vlad Jr had two hits, one his eighth homer. Dalton Pompey had two hits, one a homer too. Max Pentecost had two hits but no home runs, he hit his on his Dunedin debut on Saturday. AJ Jimenez joined the round trippers club.
