Pawtucket W 6-2
Jeremy Hazelbaker just keeps on hitting. And if Bryce Brentz and Ryan Lavarnway didn't have extraordinary nights, each is off to a decent start to the year. For Lavarnway that could go a long way towards producing some self-confidence after his awful Boston run in 2012.
Portland L 7-9
Daniel Bard: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Daniel Bard's clean inning is nice, but he's been so up-and-down of late that consistency is what we have to be looking for, much like the Sox are.
Meanwhile, Xander Bogaerts has a multi-hit game, but that's also his second hat trick of the year.
Salem L 1-3 (In 10)
Offense has been awfully hard to come by in Salem aside from Sean Coyle and, to some extent, Deven Marrero. The bottom half of the lineup, including Renfroe, Ramos, and Swihart, are all riding an 0-for on the season.
Greenville L 0-5
Jose Vinicio: 0-4, K
Cody Koback: 0-4, 2 K
Kendrick Perkins: 0-3, K
Brian Johnson: 4 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
A solid-if-unspectacular night from Brian Johnson in his first starting-length appearance. Fitting, really.
