Jared Hughes started his rehab work with Indianapolis today, throwing a shutout inning. Ivan De Jesus picked up two more hits, and is now hitting for a .400/.488/.571 line in 35 at-bats this month.   Alex Dickerson hit his 11th homer of the year while having a four hit day.

In the month of July he has a .409/.447/.705 line in 44 at-bats with three homers. His home run today was his 11th of the season, and eighth since the start of June. Last year in Bradenton he had 13 homers in 488 at-bats. His 11 this year have come in 287 at-bats. He also has 24 doubles after two today, which is close to his 31 doubles from last year. He started slow in April, and had decent numbers in May, but he has been hot since the start of June. Mel Rojas is also continuing his hot streak, hitting for a .257/.451/.524 line in 42 at-bats this month. He has been hot since the second week of May.   A+: BRADENTON MARAUDERS   Box Score Result: Tampa 4, Bradenton 3 Starting Pitcher: Joely Rodriguez, LHP (2.86) – 6.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Dan Gamache, 2B (.276) – 3-for-4, 2B, 2 RBI Other Notable Performers: Alen Hanson, SS (.278) – 2-for-5, 2B Stetson Allie, 1B (.253) – 1-for-3, 2B, BB Game Notes: Joely Rodriguez has a 2.86 ERA in 28.1 innings this year with Bradenton, along with a 12:9 K/BB ratio. His ERA is similar to his time in West Virginia this year, although he’s walking slightly more and striking out a lot less. A lot of that is because he’s pitching to contact and getting quick outs, leading to a higher GO/AO rate in Bradenton (2.42) than West Virginia (2.15). Tonight he had a 12:0 GO/AO ratio. Stetson Allie hit his eighth double with Bradenton, and now has a .300/.417/.550 line in 40 at-bats this month. Alen Hanson went 2-for-5, snapping a 1-for-19 streak in his previous six games.   A: WEST VIRGINIA POWER  West Virginia was postponed due to rain.   A-: JAMESTOWN JAMMERS   Box Score Result: Jamestown 1, Lowell 0 Starting Pitcher: Dovydas Neverauskas, RHP (3.65) – 5.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Michael Fransoso, 2B (.325) – 2-for-4, 2 2B, RBI Other Notable Performers: Harold Ramirez, RF (.343) – 2-for-4, SB Jin-De Jhang, C (.322) – 1-for-3 Danny Collins, DH (.277) – 1-for-4, 3B Shane Carle, RHP (1-0, 2.84) – 4.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 0 HR Game Notes: Dovydas Neverauskas has given up three earned runs in 15 innings over his last three starts, with a 9:3 K/BB ratio. 2013 10th round pick Shane Carle now has a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings this year, with a 15:1 K/BB ratio. The sinkerball pitcher also has a 2.0 GO/AO ratio. What Harold Ramirez has been doing this month has been amazing. He has played 14 games, and has multiple hits in nine of those games. He has only gone two games without a hit this month. Overall he has a .480/.559/.660 line on the month in 50 at-bats.   RK: GCL PIRATES    The GCL Pirates were off today.
