Red Sox affiliates

Indianapolis – 3
Pawtucket – 11
WP: Webster (3-0)
LP: Cole (3-2)
HR: IND-Presley (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: The PawSox (26-18) got to Pirates top prospect Gerrit Cole (5 2/3 IP, 8 ER, 6 H, 3 BB, 4 K) and kept rolling for 11 runs, the most that Indianapolis (31-14) has allowed all season. Jose Iglesias (0-for-3), shifted down to the seventh spot in the order, was the only Pawtucket batter without a hit on the day but he still managed an RBI on a 6th inning sac-fly. Starter Allen Webster allowed only 1 run and 1 hit in collecting his third win, but struggled with his command, walking a season high 5 batters. Leadoff man Jackie Bradley Jr. went 1-for-3 with an RBI and 3 runs, giving him a five game hitting streak that stretches back to before his disabled list stint.

Binghamton – 8
Portland – 5
WP: Mazzoni (2-1)
LP: Britton (3-4)
S: Leathersich (2)
HIGHLIGHTS: Down by 3 runs early, Portland (24-17) wrestled the lead from the BMets in the fifth inning but allowed 3 in the sixth and were never able to mount another comeback. Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with a double (his third in four games), 2 RBIs and a run. In an inning of relief Pete Ruiz struck out two batters and has now whiffed 32 over 16 2/3 innings for a 17.3 strikeout rate (Ks per nine innings).

Frederick – 6
Salem – 4
WP: Prado (2-3)
LP: Striz (0-4)
HR: FRE-Bumbry (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: Salem pitchers were pummeled for 16 hits on the day. Starter Mike Augliera allowed a season high 10 hits in his 5 innings of work, but left with the game tied at 3. Sean Coyle went 1-for-4 with a run and stole his eleventh base of the season on his eleventh attempt.

Charleston – 9
Greenville – 7
WP: Wetherell (1-0)
LP: Olivares (0-1)
HR: CHA-Bird (4), Calderon (5), Custodio 2 (3) GRE-Johns (2)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Drive (13-30) let another close one slip away, squandering a late 7-4 lead by allowing 2 runs in both the eighth and ninth innings. Four of Greenville’s last five losses have been by one or two runs. Mookie Betts (2-for-4, double, walk, run) pushed his hitting streak to 14 games. Brian Johns hit his second home run in as many games and drove in three.

New England teams

New Hampshire – 5
New Britain – 0
WP: Stroman (1-0)
LP: Hermsen (1-4)
S: Carreno (4)
HR: NH-Nanita (4), Glenn (3), Nolan (4); NB-Romero (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Fisher Cats (22-22) reach the .500 mark for the first time in a month thanks to their three game sweep in New Britain (20-23). The Rock Cats, losers of seven straight, continue to slide towards the bottom of the standings. In his first appearance since serving a 50-game suspension for violating MLBs drug policy, Marcus Stroman (ranked 5th in Blue Jays system by MLB.com) looked to be in top game condition, striking out 6 and allowing only 4 hits and a walk in 5 scoreless innings of work. Joel Carreno, who prior to this season was strictly a starter on the minor league level, picked up his 4th save.
