Pawtucket – 4
Louisville – 3
WP: Webster (4-0)
LP: Galarraga (2-3)
S: Carter (7)
HR: LOU-Phipps (4)
HIGHLIGHTS: Despite a ninth inning rally by Louisville, the PawSox (28-20) were able to hold on in a tension filled game that saw both benches empty on a couple of occasions after Bats starter Armando Galarraga took exception with Brock Holt. … Allen Webster had his start bumped up a day after scheduled starter Alfredo Aceves was called up to Boston. He struck out 4 and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits in 5 2/3 innings before being ejected after plunking Mike Hessman with a pitch in the sixth inning (video below). … Reliever Chris Martin threw another 2 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out 4 batters. Since being called up from Portland he has thrown 7 1/3 scoreless innings of relief for Pawtucket, running his season total to 28 1/3 scoreless innings with 34 strikeouts. … Jackie Bradley Jr. (RBI, run), Bryce Brentz and Brandon Snyder (2 RBI, SB) all went 2-for-4 at the plate.

Portland – 10
Binghamton - 9
WP: Couch (3-1)
LP: Walters (0-2)
S: Huntzinger (11)
HR: POR-Almanzar (9); BIN-Forsythe (3), Puello (7)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Sea Dogs (28-18) staked themselves an early 5-0 lead before the BMets piled on the pressure with 9 runs over the final five innings. Portland scored another 5 runs down the stretch to provide that very much needed insurance and place 3 games between themselves and Binghamton in the standings. … Third baseman Nick Natoli was summoned from Salem earlier in the day and after traveling to Binghamton he produced a career high five hits, going 5-for-5 with a double, 2 RBI, 2 runs and a stolen base. Check out the story of Natoli’s day here. … For his second straight start Anthony Ranaudo was unable to make it out of the fifth inning against Binghamton. He needed 96 pitches to get through 4 2/3 innings, but allowed only a run on 4 hits and 2 walks. … Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with 2 RBI and a run.

Salem – 3
Frederick - 2
WP: McCarthy (3-2)
LP: Petersime (1-5)
S: SAL-Ogando (2)
HR: FRE-Pena (4)
HIGHLIGHTS: A three-run third helped the Salem Sox (20-24) eke out a win and halt their three-game losing streak. … From the top of the order Sean Coyle went 3-for-5 with a double and a run. He is batting .435 over his last six games. … Reliever Nefi Ogando threw two scoreless innings for his second save of the year. His first save came in his last outing, also against Frederick, when he struck out three in a scoreless inning last Saturday.

Greenville – 12
Charleston – 2
WP: Haley (1-6)
LP: Camarena (0-3)
S: Wendelken (2)
HR: GRE-Betts (8), Chester (8); CHA-Bichette (2)
HIGHLIGHTS: With only their fourth win in the month of May the Drive (14-33) managed to, for the second consecutive Friday, halt a five-game win streak against Charleston. The win was Greenville’s first on the road since April 12th. … Of course we start with Mookie Betts who did push his hit streak to 18 games. He went 2-for-4 with a home run, double, walk, RBI and two runs scored. … First baseman David Chester (2-for-4, HR, 3 RBI, run) connected on his first home run since May 11th. … Starter Justin Haley struck out 8 and allowed just 1 run in 5 innings to earn his first win of the year.
