NOTES: This is Taillon's first Double-A start. He was 6-8 with a 3.82 ERA and 98 strikeouts  over 125 innings before the Pirates bumped him from Bradenton. He was selected one pick after Bryce Harper and one pick before Manny Machado in 2010.

Trenton is sitting on 150 homers, which is tied for the franchise best, set in both 1996 and 1999. Twenty-three of Trenton's 26 players this year have homered. That mark is also a franchise best. The only three who haven't gone deep are Shane Brown, Jose Toussen and Kyle Higashioka, and that trio has played a combined 30 games. ... Jeff Farnham, one of six players with a lone homer, hit the team's 100th way back on July 6. It was just the fourth homer of Farnham's career. 

Marshall has allowed nine earned runs in his last 11 1/3 innings. His 13 wins are the most from a Thunder starter since Jason Jones notched as many in 2008. ... Rehabbing Thunder pitcher Cory Arbiso tossed two scoreless innings in the GCL today.

I'm not covering this game. Nick Peruffo will be handling those duties for The Trentonian tonight and tomorrow afternoon, when Gerrit Cole takes the hill against Dellin Betances.
