Here's what happened in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (37-37): W, 8-1 vs. Syracuse

-- PawSox starter Jalen Beeks threw seven shutout innings allowing only three hits in the win. The 24-year-old added seven strikeouts bringing his season total to an International-League-leading 101.

-- Oscar Hernandez had a day at the plate. The catcher went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a RBI double and a walk. On top of that, the 24-year-old caught two would-be base-stealers.

-- First basemen Adam Lind knocked his third home run since joining the Red Sox organization. Designated hitter Sam Travis had two singles extending his hitting streak five games and his batting average to .226.

-- Recovering Red Sox reliever Tyler Thornburg threw one inning of relief. He let up a solo homer before recording three straight outs.

DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (28-46): W, 5-4 vs. Trenton

-- A two-run eighth inning single by catcher Austin Rei secured the Sea Dogs' one-run victory.

-- A solo home run from third basemen Chad De La Guerra cut the lead in half to 4-3 before Rei knocked in two just a few batters later.

-- Relief pitcher Trey Ball came away with the victory. Ball threw two perfect innings while fanning two batters. The win brings his record to 2-2 and his ERA to 6.69.

HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (35-37): W, 7-1 vs. Frederick

-- In a 1-1 game heading into the seventh, Salem’s bats exploded for a five-run frame their way to the win.

-- Right fielder Trenton Kemp opened the seventh’s scoring with a solo blast, his third of the year. Kemp also knocked a double just a few innings earlier.

-- In total Salem's offense recorded 10 hits in the win, only two of the nine starters went hitless. Even more impressive, the Red Sox lineup combined for just one strikeout. 

-- Starter Bryan Mata was given the no-decision. The righty threw five innings giving up one unearned run and striking out four in the process.

SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (26-47): L, 7-5 at Rome

-- Trailing 5-3 heading into the eighth, the Drive put together a comeback bid that would fall just short.

-- Designated hitter Jordan Wren cracked his second hit of the day to tie the game at 5-5. Wren is batting .291 with eight RBI’s between Salem and Greenville this season.

-- The tie was short-lived. Relief pitcher Lukas Young gave up two-RBI-double in the bottom half of eighth and the Drive were kept off the scoreboard in the ninth. The loss brought Young’s record to 0-2 with a 6.06 ERA.
