Red Sox affiliates

Indianapolis – 8
Pawtucket – 4
WP: Brown (3-0)
LP: Wright (2-2)
HR: IND-Sands (2), Goedert (4); PAW-Bradley Jr. (1), Iglesias (4)
HIGHLIGHTS: A five-run first by the Indians was too much for the PawSox (26-19) to overcome. After hitting 3 long balls to impress the brass in spring training, Jackie Bradley Jr. (2-for-4, HR, double, 2 RBIs, run) finally connected on his first of the regular season. Jose Iglesias (1-for-4) hit a solo home run in the ninth, his fourth of the season and first since April 29th. Reliever Ryan Rowland-Smith struck out 4 in 1 2/3 scoreless innings. On the season Rowland-Smith has allowed just 2 earned runs over 27 innings.

New Hampshire – 7
Portland – 3
WP: Walden (3-4)
LP: Haeger (1-1)
S: Carreno (5)
HR: NH-Schimpf 2 (11); POR-Thomas (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Sea Dogs (24-18) have lost five of their last seven, but still remain on top of the Eastern Division in the E.L. The Fisher Cats (23-22) fourth straight win makes them the hottest team in the league and puts them just 2 ½ games back of Portland with three games to play in this series. New Hampshire shortstop Ryan Schimpf (2-for-4, 5 RBIs, 2 runs) hit his league leadings 10th and 11th home runs. Of Schimpf’s 32 hits this season, 20 have been for extra-bases. Portland first baseman Travis Shaw went 0-for-1 with 3 walks, one more than the number of free passes he had drawn in his prior ten games.

Greenville – 2
Hickory – 5
WP: Sadzeck (3-2)
LP: Johnson (1-3)
S: Claudio (7)
HR: HIC-Akins (4), Rua (11)
HIGHLIGHTS: Tonight’s loss pushes the Drive to 3-16 in May and with 11 games remaining in the month they’ll be hard pressed to avoid something they haven’t done since August of 2006, lose 20 games in a month. Starter Brian Johnson struck out a career high 8 batters over 5 innings, but was tagged with the loss after allowing 3 runs in the second inning. He retired the side in order in three of his five innings, and struck out the side in the fifth. A fifth inning single extended the hitting streak of Mookie Betts (1-for-4, run) to 15 games. Aneury Tavarez and Drew Turocy both went 3-for-4.

New England teams

Binghamton - 6
New Britain – 3
WP: Verrett (6-1)
LP: Dean (1-5)
S: Walters (12)
HR: BIN-Dykstra (3); NB-Romero (2)
HIGHLIGHTS: That’s eight straight losses for the Rock Cats (20-24) who drop to 9-12 at home. In his first May start at New Britain Stadium Pat Dean lasted 5 innings, but allowed 8 hits and 6 runs and was tagged with his fifth loss. Reliever Michael Tonkin struck out 3 in a scoreless inning of work. He has not allowed an earned run in his last 11 appearances, striking out 13 over 11 innings. Designated hitter Deibinson Romero (3-for-4, double, RBI, run) hit his second home run in as many games.
