Pawtucket L 5-6
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-5, K
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, 2B, HR, BB
Xander Bogaerts: 3-3, 2 2B, BB
Brock Holt: 1-3
Yesterday we mentioned that Xander Bogaerts was having some BABIP woes. A 3-for-3 day will certainly help that. The ol' OPS is up towards .870 now, and there's really not much reason to expect it to go anywhere but up.
Portland L 1-2
Garin Cecchini: 2-4
Michael Almanzar: 0-4, K
Christian Vazquez: 0-2, BB, K
Travis Shaw: 1-3, HR, K
Matt Barnes: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K
Barnes has finally started showing his stuff again in his last two outings. He's gonna have to run the table to make his season as a whole look good, but it's nice to see the old signs of excellence from one of Boston's top pitching prospects.
Salem L 3-5
Henry ramos: 0-4, K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, 3B
Blake Swihart: 2-4
Mookie Betts: 0-3, BB
Cody Koback: 1-4, 2 K
Blake Swihart could certainly use one of his hot streaks again. Two encouraging games suggest one of those might be on the way.
Greenville W 5-4 (In 12)
Kendrick Perkins: 2-5, 2 K, SB
Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
GCL Red Sox L 3-8
Jon Denney: 0-2, BB, K, 2 E
