Pawtucket – 2
Indianapolis – 7
WP: Reid (5-1)
LP: Doyle (3-5)
S: Cordier (1)
HR: IND-Larish (1), Goedert 2 (7), Sanchez (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: Indy put up a four-spot in the second inning and they sailed smoothly the rest of the way behind four home runs. Two of those long balls came off the bat of Jared Goedert who has hit four versus Pawtucket (31-21) this season. … Jackie Bradley Jr. went 1-for-4 with a double, his third two-bagger in as many games. Bradley was recalled by Boston after the game. … Reliever Chris Martin pitched 1 2/3 innings allowing 2 runs and 3 hits. The runs were the first he has surrendered all season, after a scoreless innings streak of 29 2/3 innings between Portland and Pawtucket. Martin’s combined ERA on the season is 0.60.

New Hampshire - 6
Portland – 3 (11 inn.)
WP: Boone (1-0)
LP: Couch (3-2)
S: Carrenoa (7)
HR: NH-Pillar (5), Loewen (4)
HIGHLIGHTS: Adam Loewen led off the top of the 11th inning with a solo home run to help propel the Fisher Cats (26-27) to an extra-innings victory at Hadlock Field, their first win in Portland this season. The Sea Dogs (28-22) have dropped four straight. … Portland starter Matt Barnes lasted 6 innings in a no decision. He allowed 3 earned runs and 4 hits, striking out 4. Barnes has gone exactly 6 innings in four of his last six starts. … Xander Bogaerts and Shannon Wilkerson both went 2-for-5 for the Sea Dogs. … New Hampshire outfield Kevin Pillar (3-for-5, 2 RBI, 2 runs) was a double away from the cycle. Pillar has collected 9 hits in the last four games and his .330 batting average is fifth best in the Eastern League.

Salem – 5
Potomac - 4
WP: Price (2-0)
LP: Selik (0-1)
HR: SAL-Ramos (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Salem Sox (21-27) scored twice with two outs in the ninth to pull out the win, snapping a three-game slide. The win also halted a personal four-game losing streak against the Nationals. … Catcher Blake Swihart went 3-for-4 with a double, run and stolen base (4). He is batting .290 in May after a .254 April. Swihart has yet to hit a home run after launching 7 in his first full pro season last year. … Starter Kyle Stroup followed his worst outing of the season with one of his best. The righty went a season-high 7 innings, allowing 2 earned runs on a walk and 6 hits, but did not factor into the decision.

Savannah – 8
Greenville – 3
WP: Hilario (3-2)
LP: Dahlstrand (0-1)
HR: SAV-Pina (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: Despite jumping out to an early 2-run lead, the Drive (14-37) served up 15 hits in losing their 22nd game of May. … Mookie Betts, who got an off day on Monday after snapping his 19-game hit streak Sunday, was back in the lineup, going 1-for-5 with his tenth double of the season. Betts has a .360 batting average in May. … Starter Jacob Dahlstrand, in his first action with Greenville this season, allowed 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks over 4 innings. He struck out 3 and was called for a balk in the 4th inning.

S: Maday (10)
HR: RIC-Minicozzi (5); NB-Parraz (5)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Flying Squirrels two-run first held up in a pitcher’s duel that took just 2 hours and 18 minutes to complete. The Rock Cats (24-28) are 4-6 in their last ten games. … New Britain starter Logan Darnell allowed 2 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings. Despite allowing just 6 runs over 29 innings in his last four games, he is 1-3. Darnell is second in the league in innings (68), third in ERA (2.51) and tied for eighth in strikeouts (54). … Jordan Parraz, Curt Smith and Reynaldo Rodriguez were the only New Britain batters with a hit in the game, collecting one each.
