Xander HR # 10 of the season. This guy is the top prospect in the system, folks. What he's doing in his first extended exposure to Baseball in America is incredibly impressive.

Game Story

Brett Carrollís two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Pawtucket Red Sox a 6-5 victory over the Buffalo Bisons on Friday night at McCoy Stadium. It was Pawtucketís third walk-off win in their last four games.

Che-Hsuan Lin led off the ninth inning with a single to right. After Nate Spears struck out, Jed Lowrie lined a single to right, moving Lin to third. Lars Anderson struck out for the second out of the inning, but Carroll then blooped a soft liner to right, scoring Lin and Tony Thomas, who entered the game as a pinch-runner for Lowrie.

Carroll finished with two hits and three RBI. Anderson hit his 12th homer of the season in the first inning. Lin had a pair of hits and scored twice.


Game Story

All of Richmond's scoring came in the fourth off starter Chris Balcom-Miller, without the benefit of any particularly hard-hit balls.

The half-hour rally started with an infield single by Charlie Culbertson, when Portland first baseman Matt Spring couldn't handle a low throw from third baseman Jon Hee.

After one out, Chris Dominguez looped an opposite-field double just fair down the right-field line to score Culbertson.

After Wes Hodges bounced to the pitcher, lefty-swinging Johnny Monell also went to the opposite field, chopping a double just over the third-base bag to score Dominguez.

Balcom-Miller's nightmarish inning was not over. After Wendell Fairley singled up the middle, Skyler Stromsmoe got the final hit of the rally, an RBI blooper over second base that three fielders converged on too late.

Balcom-Miller was relieved after 99 pitches by Miguel Gonzalez, with one out in the sixth.

"I thought Chris had a good approach tonight. He was very efficient," said Portland Manager Kevin Boles. "But give Richmond's hitters credit, they did what they needed to do."

Offensively, Portland's chances were hampered by a 15-mph breeze that never diminished.

The Sea Dogs hit five balls -- all caught -- that might have been home runs or gone for extra-base hits on a calmer night.

"Yes, I thought some of those balls would go a lot farther than they did, but that's the way it goes," said Boles.


Game Story

Red Sox pitchers issued nine walks and tossed five wild pitches, Salem's defense made three errors, and Kinston broke it open with five runs in the sixth, routing the Sox 10-2 on Friday night at Grainger Stadium.

After falling behind 4-0 early, Salem came within two after Kolbrin Vitek's solo home run in the top of the sixth, but the Indians batted around in the bottom of the frame and rolled to the series-opening victory.

Salem starter Drake Britton lasted just 2 13 innings, throwing 67 pitches to 15 batters and obtaining only seven outs.

The Indians scored an unearned run in the last of the first and then rallied for three more in the bottom of the third with Tyler Cannon's RBI double driving in two, chasing Britton from the ballgame in the process.

Down 4-0, the Red Sox loaded the bases with one out in the fifth against Indians starter Clayton Cook, who held Salem to just one run, scoring on Shannon Wilkerson's fielder's choice ground-out.

In the top of the sixth, Vitek's second homer of the season cut the deficit to two, and Miles Head drew a two-out walk that ended Cook's day. But Jose Flores induced a Jorge Padron ground-out to end the threat.

A tight game became a laugher via Kinston's five-run sixth, utilizing four walks, one hit-batter, three wild pitches, and two singles to score five times. Anatanaer Batista, who had thrown three scoreless innings until the sixth, was charged with three of the runs, while Jeremiah Bayer was assessed two.


Game Story

Greenville tied the game with four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and Brandon Jacobs' walk-off single in the 11th gave the Drive an 11-10 victory over the Lexington Legends Friday night.

Greenville built an early 5-0 lead. Felix Sanchez led off the first with a triple and scored on Sean Coyle's double. Coyle came around to score on two infield outs. In the second inning, two Lexington errors, an RBI single by Sanchez and a two-run double by Coyle produced three more runs.

The Legends came back with three runs in the fifth inning. Tyler Burnett led off with a single, moved to second on Ben Orloff's ground out and scored on Emilio King's two-out single and an error by Jacobs, the left fielder. Delino DeShields Jr. walked, and after a throwing error by catcher Christian Vazquez on a pickoff attempt, Jay Austin doubled home two runs to cut the Greenville lead to 5-3.

Xander Bogaerts' solo homer made the score 6-3 in the sixth, but Lexington took the lead in the top of the seventh. Consecutive singles by Burnett, Orloff and Roberto Pena brought home one run. King grounded into a force play at second, but DeShields singled, scoring Orloff, and Austin followed with another two-run double, giving the Legends a 7-6 advantage.

In the top of the eighth, an RBI single by King and an error by first baseman Michael Almanzar gave the Legends two more runs , and Burnett's solo homer in the ninth made the score 10-6 Legends.

Almanzar started Greenville's ninth-inning rally with a single. Drew Hedman followed with a double, sending Almanzar to third, from where he scored on a ground out by Drew Dominguez. Sanchez reached on an error at first base by Burnett as Hedman scored from third. Coyle popped out, but Jacobs was awarded first base on Pena's catcher interference, moving Sanchez to second. Vazquez singled, scoring Sanchez to cut the Legends' lead to one, and sending Jacobs to third. Jason Chowning relieved Brian Streilein for Lexington, and Chowning's wild pitch allowed Jacobs to score the tying run.


Game Story

For the third consecutive night the Lowell Spinners found themselves in an early hole and once again they were unable to catch-up, dropping the first of a two-game series to the Connecticut Tigers on Fireworks Night at LeLacheur Park Friday night, 6-1.

Connecticut (20-26) jumped all over Spinners' starter Tyler Wilson after Tyler Collins started things off with a one-out single. Collins stole second base and Wilson hit Jason King with a pitch before allowing a two-run single to Dean Green. Aaron Westlake followed with a two-run home run to put the Tigers ahead, 4-0, before Wilson stranded runners on first and second to get out of the inning.

Lowell (20-28) got on the board in the second inning on a solo home run by Tim Roberson, his second of the season, cutting the Tigers lead to 4-1.

The Tigers would add insurance runs in the seventh, off Nefi Ogando, and the ninth, off Joe Holtmeyer, for what would hold as a 6-1 final.

Offensively the Spinners had just five hits. Roberson was 2-for-3 with a home run, while Moko Moanaroa was 2-for-4 with a double. Keury De La Cruz had the lone other Spinner hit.

Wilson (2-3, 3.62) settled down after allowing four first inning runs, not allowing another run over his next three innings. Over four innings, Wilson allowed four runs on seven hits, striking out one. Ogando followed with four innings, allowing one run on three hits, striking out three. Holtmeyer allowed one run on two hits, striking out one in the ninth.
