Bryant, the second overall pick in June's First-Year Player Draft, homered in the second game, a solo shot in the fourth inning of a 3-2 loss. Bryant batted .354 in 18 games at short-season Class A Boise before getting bumped up to Daytona.

• Josh Vitters may be headed to the disabled list again. The third baseman aggravated his hamstring, which has kept him sidelined much of the season at Triple-A Iowa. Vitters has been limited to 28 games this season because of injuries, and was batting .295. On Monday, in his first game since July 25, he hit a solo home run.
