LP: McCutchen (2-2)
S: Lyon (2)

HIGHLIGHTS: In the midst of “Jackie Bradley Jr. getting pulled from the game in the 6th inning” Mania, a solid game was played. The Tides scored in each of the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th innings to pull even with the PawSox who took the lead right back in the bottom half of the 8th on a Justin Henry sac fly. Henry happened to spell Bradley, leading to speculation that the No. 2 Red Sox prospect may have been part of a trade deadline deal. Manager Gary DiSarcinia told reports after the game that it was due to an arm issue with Bradley and nothing more. … Alex Wilson made his first rehab appearance, working the final out of the game, but not before allowing a run on 2 hits. … Xander Bogaerts went 0-for-2 but managed to get on base via walk and being hit by a pitch.
