Notes: Rodriguez was a Futures Gamer this year. He allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in his one inning. Nick Castellanos, the game's MVP, reached him for a three-run blast. With three strikeouts today, he'll move past Zack Wheeler and teammate Trevor May for the Eastern League lead. ... Whatever was ailing David Adams in the early portion of the season clearly is gone. This July he's hitting .419/.463/.516, good for first, first and 16th in the league. ... Addison Maruszak is hitting .329/.381/.553 in July. ... Luke Murton and Maruszak's slugging percentages of .652 and .553 are fourth and 10th in the EL, respectively. ... Vidal Nuno's 25 Ks are tied with Richmond's Justin Fitzgerald for the best on the circuit.
