Pawtucket – 2
Indianapolis – 3
WP: Hughes (1-0)
LP: Wilson (1-1)
HR: IND-Carroll (9)
HIGHLIGHTS: In his first action since returning from Boston reliever Alex Wilson allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the tenth when he uncorked a wild pitch with the bases loaded, allowing Alex Presley to come home. It was the first time Wilson pitched for Pawtucket since April 8th. While with Boston he made 16 appearances, going 1-0 with a 2.50 ERA. … Catcher Dan Butler went 3-for-4 and Ronald Bermudez went 2-for-4 to pace a PawSox offense that had 10 hits on the day. … Starter Steven Wright went 5 2/3 innings, allowing 2 earned runs, 6 hits and 3 walks while striking out 5. He served up a 6th inning home run to Brett Carroll, the 6th long ball allowed by Wright in his last 5 starts.

New Hampshire - 7
Portland – 2
WP: Walden (4-5)
LP: Britton (3-5)
HIGHLIGHTS: A five-run second inning was all Marcus Walden needed to help guide the Fisher Cats (27-28) to the win. Walden allowed a run, a walk and 4 hits over 6 innings, striking out 6 in the process. … Portland starter Drake Britton struck out 7 in 5 innings and allowed just 1 earned run. There were four unearned runs on Britton’s watch, thanks to a throwing error by Xander Bogaerts to start the second inning. It was Bogaerts 9th error this season. … New Hampshire first baseman Kevin Ahrens went 4-for-4 with 2 doubles, 2 RBIs and a run. … Fisher Cats outfielder Kevin Pillar extended his hitting streak to seven games with a 1-for-3 night. He also stole his team-high 14th base.

Salem – 3
Potomac - 7
WP: Grace (3-0)
LP: Augliera (4-2)
HR: SAL-Blair (2); POT-Leonida (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: For the second straight start Mike Augliera was tagged with a loss despite a solid all-around effort. He allowed 4 runs and 6 hits over 6 innings and for the third straight game served up a home run after not allowing any in his first 7 starts. … Garin Cecchini and Keury De La Cruz both went 2-for-4 for Salem, accounting for four of the team’s seven hits in the game. … Shortstop Deven Marrero botched a throw to first on a ground ball from Adrian Sanchez. It is Marrero’s first error of the season in 146 chances and did not lead to a run.

Asheville – 9
Greenville – 8
WP: Mejias (1-3)
LP: Ortega (0-2)
S: Gonzalez (2)
HR: ASH-Murphy (10); GRE-Briscoe (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: After plating 7 runs over the first four innings the Drive (15-38) must sit and wonder what they need to do to actually win a game, after they squandered their early lead for another disappointing loss. The teams combined for 25 hits and 4 errors on the day. … For the third straight game Mookie Betts collected one hit, a double. He also walked once and scored twice. … Catcher Tim Roberson went 3-for-4 with a double, 2 RBIs and a run to lead the Drive on offense. … Keaton Briscoe took a 1-1 offering from Matthew Carasiti over the wall in right for his first home run as a pro. … Starter Brian Johnson gave up 3 earned runs and 7 hits before departing after 4 innings. He struck out 5 batters and threw 81 pitches, 50 for strikes.

New England teams

Richmond - 1
New Britain – 2
WP: Dean (3-5)
LP: Snodgrass (4-1)
S: Achter (2)
HIGHLIGHTS: Pat Dean put forth his best effort of the season and got just enough run support to put the Rock Cats in the win column. The former Naugatuck (Conn.) High School standout allowed just 1 run and 5 hits in 7 innings and did not allow a walk while striking out three. … Daniel Ortiz went 2-for-3 and drove in both New Britain runs with singles in the second and fourth innings.
