Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox

Final Score: Norfolk Tides 6, PawSox 2

Notable Pitchers:

Matt Barnes (4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K)

  • Barnes’ transition to the bullpen hasn’t gone perfectly, but last night’s outing did. With four perfect innings, Barnes shows just how dominant he could be out of the bullpen. With all the starting pitching prospects that the Red Sox have, Barnes will likely end up in the bullpen eventually so it makes sense to start early and this performance showcases his potential.

Ronald Belisario (IP, 0 H, 0 R, K)

Heath Hembree (IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, K)

Notable Position Players:

Jackie Bradley Jr. (2-3, 3B, BB, K)

Garin Cecchini (2-3, BB, K)

Allen Craig (0-3, BB, 2 K)

Deven Marrero (1-3, BB, K)

Travis Shaw (0-4, 2 K)
