Pawtucket W 3-2
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-4, HR, BB, 2 K
Bryce Brentz: 0-5, K
Xander Bogaerts: 2-5, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, BB, 2 K, 2 SB
Chris Hernandez: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
That's a nice way for Bradley to break out of an 0-for-15 slump. He's still got an OPS of .886 even after so many fruitless plate appearances.
Portland Game 1 L 1-4 (In 7)
Michael Almanzar: 1-3, K
Travis Shaw: 1-3
Matt Barnes: 4 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
It took Matt Barnes a lot of pitches (in part because of some errors, obviously), but this is the first time in more than a month that he's avoided surrendering any earned runs.
Portland Game 2 W 3-0 (In 7)
Michael Almanzar: 0-4, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 2B, K
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-2, SB
Even with a recent 8-for-19 run, Shaw's OPS has just barely reached .700, so awful was his May performance.
Carolina League All-Stars W 12-2
Garin Cecchini: 0-2, BB, cS
Blake Swihart: 1-3,
This team has a proclivity for promoting guys after All-Star breaks. Don't be surprised if Garin Cecchini is coming to a Portland near you sometime in the next couple of days.
