Here are all the happenings from the Red Sox farm system on Tuesday night.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (30-32): W, 5-3 at Syracuse

-- The PawSox plated three runs in the top of the ninth for the come-from-behind victory.

-- Shortstop Mike Miller walked with the bases loaded to tie the game before Tzu-Wei Lin hit a grounded back to the pitcher, which he bobbled, allowing the PawSox to take a 4-3 lead and then added an insurance run on a wild pitch.

-- Closer Ryan Brasier recorded his seventh save. He lowered his ERA to 1.74 and hasn’t allowed an earned run since May 12.

DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (22-40): L, 2-1 at Richmond

-- The Sea Dogs mustered a mere three hits and combined for three errors defensively in the loss.

-- Starting pitcher Matthew Kent tossed seven scoreless innings and striking out five in the process. Hitters struggle to drive the ball against Kent, as he allows 1.97 ground outs for every fly ball.

-- Catcher Austin Rei singled twice and added a walk. His OBP stands at .358.

HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (29-33): W, 3-2 (10 innings) vs. Potomac

-- Catcher Roldani Baldwin roped a line drive to score shortstop Santiago Espinal and earn a walk-off win in the 10th.

-- Designated hitter Ryan Scott doubled in the bottom of the ninth to bring the game to extra innings, scoring first baseman Jerry Downs.

-- Starting pitcher Bryan Mata struck out eight, but walked six over 5 1/3 innings. Despite the gaudy strikeout numbers (39 in 46 1/3 innings), he has given up 40 free passes on the season.

SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (21-42): L, 10-4 vs. Rome

-- The Drive allowed 18 hits in the contest.

-- Starting pitcher Alex Scherff managed to go only two innings, surrendering seven earned runs and nine hits. His ERA sits at a lowly 6.45 for the season.

-- Right fielder Victor Acosta smacked two hits and recorded an RBI. Acosta has hit safely in 14 of his last 15 games.
