Red Sox affiliates

Gwinnett – 6
Pawtucket – 4
WP: Loe (2-0)
LP: Godfrey (2-3)
S: Rasmus (6)
HR: GWI-Mejia (11); PAW-Diaz (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: A four-run first for the PawSox looked like it was the start of something good at McCoy Stadium, until the Braves chipped away with 2 runs in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings. In the first inning Jonathan Diaz launched a solo shot over everything in left field. Bryce Brentz went 2-for-3 to extend his hitting streak to seven games. He has 2 hits in each of his last four games, and five of his last six. Chris Martin threw 2 scoreless innings in relief and has not allowed a run in 23 innings this season (3 innings since being called up to Pawtucket this week).

Portland – 4
New Hampshire – 5
WP: Carreno (2-1)
LP: Latimer (0-3)
HR: NH-Tolisano (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: It was an odd one in Manchester where Sea Dogs pitching allowed 14 walks on the night but only 4 hits. Down 4-1 in the ninth, Portland scored three to pull even but New Hampshire won it on a Brad Glenn sac fly in the bottom half of the inning. Fisher Cats third baseman Ryan Schimpf went did not register an at-bat on the night, but earned five free passes. Portland starter Charlie Haeger allowed 7 walks in his five innings and was followed by Daniel Bard who gave up 5 walks and 2 earned runs in just one inning of work.

Salem – 5
Carolina – 4
WP: Quevedo (1-2)
LP: Lee (0-4)
HIGHLIGHTS: Each team collected 8 hits but Salem got five of them in the seventh to plate 4 runs and take a lead that they would hold on to. Matt Gedman (1-for-4) plated two of those runs on a double and has now hit safely in all four games since arriving in Salem. Second baseman Sean Coyle went 0-for-3 and is now hitless in his last seven games.

Greenville – 1
Ashville – 8
WP: Oakes (4-3)
LP: Johnson (1-2)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Tourists used a 7-run fourth inning to sink the Drive (12-27) who are now 2-12 in May. Greenville has lost four straight. Starter Brian Johnson got lit up for 7 runs, 6 earned, on 7 hits and 2 walks. Anuery Tavarez, Jordan Weems and Jose Vinicio all went 2-for-4 on the day, accounting for 6 of the 8 Greenville hits.
