Red Sox affiliates

Pawtucket – 4
Columbus – 0
WP: De La Rosa (1-1)
LP: Murata (0-3)
HR: PAW-Brentz (14)
HIGHLIGHTS: It was a mixed bag, but mostly filled with goodies for Rubby De La Rosa in his return to the PawSox rotation. He walked a season-high five batters, but only gave up two hits and struck out five over 5 1/3 innings to pick up his first win at the Triple-A level. …Alex Wilson (1 2/3 innings) and Brock Huntzinger (2 innings) helped the PawSox nail down their third shutout of the season. … Bryce Brentz hit a second inning solo home run, giving him 14 on the year, tied for fourth most in the Eastern League. It is his fourth home run in his last six games and he has nine RBIs in that span. … Jackie Bradley Jr. went 0-for-4 and is now hitless in his last 17 at-bats. He is batting .143 in seven June games.

Lowell – 1
Connecticut – 0
WP: Aro (1-0)
LP: Huber (0-1)
HIGHLIGHTS: For the second straight season the Spinners inch out a one-run victory over the Tigers on opening day, in the process earning manager Bruce Crabbe his 100th victory as Lowell’s bench boss. … It was all about the pitching in this one as Lowell starter Sergio Gomez (5 innings) and relievers Chris Carpenter (1 inning) and Jonathan Aro (3 innings) combined for 15 strikeouts, allowing only one walk and four hits. … Five Connecticut pitchers combined on a four-hit effort, striking out a combined nine Spinners on the night. Alex Phillips was solid in the starting role, lasting 4 2/3 innings while not allowing a walk. … Lowell’s Cleuluis Rondon and David Sopilka were both 2-for-3, accounting for all Spinners hits on the night.

New England teams

Vermont – 3
Tri-City – 9
WP: Comer (1-0)
LP: Paulino (0-1)
HR: VER-Rojas (1); TC-Kemmer (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: The ValleyCats jumped on Vermont early, scoring four runs in the first three innings while slugging out 15 hits as a whole on the night. It’s the second straight season opening loss versus Tri-City for the Lake Monsters. … Kelvin Rojas (2-for-3, HR, walk, RBI, run) hit a third inning solo home run to get the Lake Monsters on the board. In 35 games with Vermont last season Rojas did not hit any long balls. … B.J. Boyd, Oakland’s 13th best prospect per MLB.com, went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in his Lake Monsters debut.
