Pawtucket L 4-8
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 2-4, 2B, HR
Bryce Brentz: 0-4, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, K
Jose Iglesias: 1-4, HR
Brock Holt: 3-4, 2B, K
Jackie Bradley Jr. picks up his first home run of the season. It took him a fair while to pick up his first as a professional, too, and then he went ahead and hit his next immediately.Getting ready for a second tomorrow?
Portland L 3-7
Xander Bogaerts: 0-5, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 1-5, 2B, K
Travis Shaw: 0-1, 3 BB
Christian Vazquez: 1-4
Kolbrin Vitek: 2-4
Travis Shaw's walk total is quickly catching up to his strikeout total. If he can just get the power swing working...but he was always a guy to do things in bursts last year, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the extra-base hits coming all at once.
Greenville L 2-5
Mookie Betts: 1-4
Cody Koback: 1-4, K
Jose Vinicio: 0-3, K
Brian Johnson: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 1 HR
Brian Johnson's best strikeout night by far this year. The fact that he still gave up three with this sort of performance is kind of proof of the Greenville curse. That, or variance.
