Red Sox affiliates

Indianapolis - 8
Pawtucket - 9
WP: Beato (3-1)
LP: Oliver (3-2)
S: Carter (6)
HR: IND-Sands (3), Sanchez (4), Goedert (5); PAW-Brentz (8)
HIGHLIGHTS: Wednesday's matinee at McCoy was a wild one that featured a little bit of everything, from lead changes to home runs to big errors to ejections. The PawSox (27-19) managed 9 runs on just 6 hits thanks to some timely errors on the Indians part, allowing them to scrape out a split in this four-game series...Bryce Brentz (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) took his 8th home run of the season, a solo shot, to the bleachers in right-center field. Brentz has hit safely in 8 of his last 10 games, 6 of which have been multi-hit efforts...In the seventh inning pitcher Pedro Beato, manager Gary DiSarcina and first baseman Brandon Snyder were all ejected from the game (see video below). Beato was ejected for deliberately throwing at Josh Harrison, despite umpire Will Little not issuing any prior warnings or Beato connecting with the offering. DiSarcina and Snyder were tossed in the aftermath after vocally challenging Little's call...It was an interesting day for Indianapolis catcher Tony Sanchez who went 2-for-2 with a home run, 2 RBIs and two runs. He also threw two pickoff attempts into the outfield, and had a throw go awry when trying to field a slow roller. To add injury to insult the former Boston College product was plunked on the left wrist by a 96 mph fastball from Anthony Carter in the ninth inning... The PawSox will enjoy an off day on Wednesday before heading out to Louisville.

New Hampshire - 3
Portland - 5
WP: Couch (2-1)
LP: McGuire (2-4)
S: Huntzinger (9)
HR: POR-Almanzar (8)
HIGHLIGHTS: Down 3-2, the Sea Dogs (25-18) mounted a seventh inning comeback with Matt Spring providing the key hit, a bases clearing double that put Portland ahead...Keith Couch struck out 4 in his 3 scoreless innings of relief, notching his first win since April 22nd...Portland starter Brandon Workman went 5 innings, striking out 6 and allowing 3 earned runs on 5 hits and 3 walks. He has gone 5 or more innings in all nine appearances this season...Fisher Cats starter Deck McGuire lasted 6 innings, but got hooked for the loss after departing with runners on 1st and 2nd and no outs in the seventh...Michael Almanzar's first inning home run was his eighth of the season and third in his last six games.

Winston-Salem - 11
Salem - 1
WP: Bassitt (5-1)
LP: Cuevas (1-5)
HR: WS-Farrell (7)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Salem Red Sox (19-23) bats were stymied, mustering only 3 hits on the night. Catcher Carson Blair accounted for two of those hits and has hit safely in five straight, collecting 8 hits and 7 RBIs in that span...Starter William Cuevas allowed 6 earned runs over 3 innings and reliever Heri Quevedo served up 4 runs in 5 innings. Both pitchers hit two batters apiece...Jeremy Farrell, son of Boston manager John Farrell, went 4-for-4 with a home run, 3 doubles, 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored to lead the Winston-Salem 14-hit barrage.

Greenville - 2
Hickory - 7
WP: Stafford (1-4)
LP: Taveras (0-2)
HR: HIC-Rua 2 (13)
HIGHLIGHTS: Once again the Drive had a lead only to watch it slip away late thanks to two Ryan Rua blasts, including one in the eighth that put the game out of reach. Rua leads the South Atlantic League with 13 dingers, 7 of which have come in his last ten games. It is the Drive's fourth straight loss and 17th in May...Seven Greenville players did pick up hits on the night, but Cody Koback was the only one with an extra-base hit, a double in the sixth inning...Mookie Betts singled in the third to extend his hitting streak to 16 games...Starter Frank Montas allowed just 1 run in 5 innings and did not factor into the decision for his third straight start. He struck out 8 batters and now has 49 Ks in 39 innings this season.

New England teams

Binghamton - 3
New Britain - 9
WP: May (3-2)
LP: deGrom (1-5)
HR: BIN-Puello (6); NB-Romero (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: New Britain (21-24) finally put an end to their longest losing streak in nearly two full years...After going down 2-0 in the first inning, Deibinson Romero pulled the Rock Cats even in the third with a two-out, two-run homer, his third in as many games. Romero (1-for-3, 2 RBIs, 3 runs) has hit safely in 8 straight games. Daniel Ortiz's team-leading 14th double drove in Romero and New Britain tacked on insurance runs in the 5th and 6th innings...Starter Trevor May went 5 innings for the win, but did allow a season-high 5 walks. He served up 8 hits and 2 earned runs, striking 6 in process.
