Red Sox affiliates

Gwinnett – 3
Pawtucket – 5
WP: Webster (2-0)
LP: Gilmartin (2-2)
S: Carter (5)
HR GWI-Boggs (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: The PawSox continued their winning ways against Gwinnett, taking their fifth straight against the Braves behind some solid pitching that allowed only 6 hits on the night. Starter Allen Webster walked 4 in his 5 innings, but allowed only 1 run (a Brandon Boggs solo homer) and struck out five. Justin Henry went 3-for-4 from the top of the order, scoring twice and swiping his sixth base of the season, and Bryce Brentz went 2-for-4 with 2 RBIs to lead the PawSox offense.

Portland – 0
New Hampshire – 3
WP: Walden (2-4)
LP: Britton (3-3)
S: Stilson (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: Marcus Walden put together his best outing of the season for the Fisher Cats (18-21), holding the Sea Dogs to just two hits. He forced 13 ground ball outs and struck out 6 over 7 2/3 innings of work. Portland shortstop Xander Bogaerts did not reach base for the first time in 22 games. New Hampshire outfielder Kevin Pillar snapped an 0-for-15 streak, going 3-for-4 on the night with a RBI and a run, raising his batting average to .325. Brad Glenn (2-for-4) and Nashua native Kevin Nolan (2-for-3) also had multi-hit games for the Fisher Cats. The Sea Dogs move to 22-14 on the season.

Salem – 2
Carolina – 1
WP: Augliera (4-0)
LP: Anderson (4-2)
S: Striz (2)
HR: SAL-Gedman (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: Mike Augliera put together a solid outing, allowing only 3 hits in 6 scoreless innings, striking out 4 and allowing no free passes. The win snapped Salem’s six-game losing streak. In his third game since arriving from extended spring training Matt Gedman hit his first home run of the year, a solo shot in the 8th that turned out to be the difference in the game. Gedman has hit safely in all three games with Salem. Shortstop Deven Marrero went 0-for-4, striking out three times. Catcher Blake Swihart (2-for-3, RBI) stole his third base of the season.

Greenville – 8
Ashville – 9
WP: Fernandez (1-1)
LP: Haley (0-6)
HR: GRE-Roberson (1); ASH-Jones (6), Sosa (7)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Drive (12-26) suffered a heartbreaker in this one, giving up 3 runs in the bottom of the ninth after they had taken a lead of their own with 2 in the top half of the inning. Tim Roberson’s two-run for Greenville broke a 6-6 tie, but Justin Haley loaded the bases with one out and a two-error play on a Tom Murphy fly ball to center field plated all three runs. Roberson went 3-for-5 with his first home run of the season and 5 RBIs. Catcher Jayson Hernandez also went 3-for-5, raising his average to .352. Mookie Betts extended his hitting streak to 10 games.

New England teams

New Britain – 2
Bowie – 8
WP: Jones (1-2)
LP: Hermsen (1-3)
S: Gurka (3)
HR: BOW-Waring (1), Urrutia (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Rock Cats (20-18) bats were cold in Bowie, managing only 4 hits while striking out 10 times. New Britain also staked the Baysox four runs on two errors, but despite the Rock Cats getting within one, Bowie pulled away with 4 runs off of Bobby Lanigan in the eighth inning. Second baseman Jason Christian (1-for-4, run) picked up his second triple in four games, but led the strikeout parade with 3 on the night.
