LP: Guilmet (2-4)
S: Carter (10)
HR: PAW-Bradley Jr. (3)
HIGHLIGHTS: The PawSox (42-28) made it three straight wins behind some more solid pitching and some very timely miscues by the opposition. With the game tied at two in the top of the ninth inning, Pawtucket managed to plate the go-ahead run without getting a hit as the Clippers committed three errors. … Jose De La Torre struck out four in 2 1/3 scoreless inning of relief to pick up the win. He has K’d nine batters over his last five innings of work. … Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his third home run of the season and first for the PawSox since May 27th. His last home run came on June 4th when he was up with Boston. … After stealing 12 bases in May, it took Jeremy Hazelbaker 13 games to log his first of June. He stole two bases on the night, giving him 18 on the season, sixth most in the International League. … Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-5 with two singles. It was his second multi-hit game in five appearances since being promoted to Pawtucket.

Portland – 1
Reading – 4
WP: Rosin (4-4)
LP: Barnes (3-4)
HIGHLIGHTS: Despite not allowing an earned run Matt Barnes only made it through four innings, needing 89 pitches to get to that point. He struck out six, walked two and allowed three hits. For the third straight game Barnes did not last more than four innings and picked up a loss. … Michael Almanzar, Travis Shaw and Derrik Gibson each had a single in the game, the only three hits the Sea Dogs could muster. … Peter Hissey stole his tenth base of the season.

Portland – 3
Reading – 0
WP: Haeger (3-3)
LP: Bramhall (0-1)
S: Perez (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Sea Dogs (36-33) bats were near lifeless again in game two, notching only four hits, but it took but just one whack from Travis Shaw in the third inning to do all the damage needed. Shaw, 2-for-4 in the game, cleared the bases with a double that provided the games only runs and the Sea Dogs only extra-base hit of the day. … Charlie Haeger worked 5 2/3 scoreless innings for the win, walking and striking out five while allowing four hits.

HIGHLIGHTS: A tug-of-war ensued over the eighth and ninth innings as the teams wrestled back and forth for this one, but the Curve got the upper hand in the extra frame when Adalberto Santos, who broke a 1-1 tie with a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth, singled home Drew Maggi. … Brian Van Kirk, who has hit 49 home runs over the last four seasons, connected for his first of 2013. The three run bomb in the top of the ninth put New Hampshire on top before the Curve pushed the game to extras in the bottom half of the inning. … Kevin Pillar went 3-for-5 with a run.
