Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox

Final Score: PawSox 6, Norfolk Tides 0

Notable Pitchers:

Ronald Belisario (IP, H, 0 R)

Brian Johnson (6.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K)

  • This is Johnson’s first start since his unsuccessful major league debut against the Astros last week and he immediately returns to dominating in Triple-A. It’s clear that he’s major league ready. It’s clear that the Red Sox need starting pitchers. It’s clear that this is a lost season. Why is Johnson not in Boston?

Noe Ramirez (1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K)

Notable Position Players:

Jackie Bradley Jr. (1-2, 2 BB)

Garin Cecchini (1-4, K)

Allen Craig (1-3, BB, K)

Marco Hernandez (0-4)

Deven Marrero (1-3, BB)
