WP: Wright (6-6)

They are currently one game back in the Wild Card race. … Wright threw seven innings without allowing an earned run, serving up seven hits and a walk while striking out four. After another stint with Boston, Wright returned for his first start with Pawtucket since a July 28th shutout performance. … Mark Hamilton (2-for-4) led the offense with a double, three RBIs and a run.

Bowie – 6
Portland -5
WP: Bischoff (5-1)
LP: Celestino (1-9)
S: McCutchen (2)
HR: BOW-Rosa (4); POR-Linares (4)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Sea Dogs (57-63) let a three run lead slip in the eighth inning as they dropped their second straight series at home. … Matt Barnes allowed a run on four hits and three walks in five innings. He struck out six, but needed 101 pitches to record the 15 outs he needed. … J.C. Linares went 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBIs and a run.

HIGHLIGHTS: The Salem Sox (59-59) get back to .500 with a balanced attack, kicking off their six game road trip on the right foot. … Mookie Betts sparked the offense with a five RBI performance. The second baseman went 3-for-5 on the day, hitting his fourth home run with Salem and 12th overall this season.

Staten Island – 1
WP: McGrath (2-1)
LP: Davis (2-3)
S: Aro (1)
HR: LOW-Moore (1), Minnich (1)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Spinners (29-22) used a power surge (of sorts) and some strong pitching to salvage a win in Staten Island. Lowell is a game and half back of Tri-City in the Stedler Division and a half game behind State College in the Wild Card race. … Daniel McGrath pitched five perfect innings, striking out six along the way. The Australian lefty has picked up wins in his last two outings (one in relief). … Nick Moore and Nathan Minnich hit solo home runs, giving Lowell their only multi-homer game of the season.

New England teams

Richmond – 5
New Hampshire – 1
WP: Snodgrass (10-4)
LP: Stroman (6-4)
HR: RIC-Ciriaco (1), Herrera (15); NH-Glenn (17)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Fisher Cats (56-62) didn’t get on the board until the ninth inning and it was too-little, too-late by that point as they drop their second straight. … Marcus Stroman gave up five runs and a season-high 11 hits for his second straight loss. His four strikeouts were the least amount of batters he has K’d in a game since he had four back on June 26th. … Brad Glenn’s solo hom run, his 17th, pulled him within one of team leader Ryan Schimpf and two behind the league lead.

New Britain – 5
Reading – 14
WP: Hollands (3-1)
LP: Summers (1-2)
HR: NB-Sano (13), Parraz (11); REA-Franco (9), Dugan (6)
HIGHLIGHTS: The Rock Cats (57-63) found out the hard way that it’s tough to win when you give up 14 runs, as Reading takes 2-of-3 from New Britain. … Miguel Sano (2-for-5) connected for his 13th Rock Cat homer, and 29th of the season. He has three straight two-hit games, with seven RBIs to go along with the streak.
