Portland Game 2 W 3-2 (In 7)

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-4, 2 K
Juan Carlos Linares: 1-2, BB
Bryce Brentz: 1-3, HR, K

-I had a whole big thing typed out here, but then Marc kinda stole my thunder.

Josh Fields: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Salem W 7-5

Box Score

Jackie Bradley: 1-4, 2B, BB, K
-I've got a weird thing with the 1-for-4 with a double and a walk game. It's good for a .900 OPS, which to me makes it sort of the classic good game. For Bradley, it's almost a disappointment. That's saying something.
Sean Coyle: 0-4, BB, K
Travis Shaw: 1-3, K
Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, 2B
-His power hasn't been all there so far, but Xander Bogaerts' OBP is a good 30 points higher so far despite the level change, with a lower strikeout rate and higher walk rate. We know the pop is in there, too, so it's easier to take this as purely a positive.

Greenville L 2-7

Box Score

Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, K, E
Garin Cecchini: 0-4, 2 K
David Renfroe: 1-4, 2B
Blake Swihart: 1-3, 2B

Henry Owens: 4 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
-An unfortunate relapse for Owens, who had allowed just 4 ER in his last 23.2 innings of work.
