USA TODAY Sports

Xander Bogaerts has moved up to Triple-A. Triple-A pitchers think the Red Sox were being pretty thoughtless when they did such a rotten thing.

Pawtucket Game 1 W 1-0 (In 7)

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-3, 2B, K, CS
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-2, BB
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, K
Xander Bogaerts: 1-2, BB, SB
Alex Hassan: 2-3, 2B

Allen Webster: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Pawtucket Game 2 W 8-7 (In 7)

Bryce Brentz: 1-5, HR, K
Xander Bogaerts: 2-5, HR, 2 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 3-4, 2B, BB
Brock Holt: 0-4, K

Portland L 3-6

Box Score

Michael Almanzar: 1-3, BB
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 2B
Christian Vazquez: 2-4, E

Keith Couch: 5.1 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
