Here's a look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Wednesday. TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (11-8): Off day. Next game is Thursday night at Syracuse. DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (6-15): L, 6-0, at Binghamton (Mets) -- The Mets scored four runs in the first inning off Portland starter Ty Buttrey and never looked back. Only one run of the four was earned. Buttrey went 2 2/3 innings and allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits, while walking two and striking out one. He fell to 0-4 on the season. -- In relief of Buttrey, Heri Quevedo went 3 1/3 innings and allowed only one run on two hits. Williams Jerez tossed a scoreless seventh and Rob Wort allowed an unearned run in the eighth. -- At the plate, the Sea Dogs couldn't get anything going as they finished with just four hits as a team and went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. Of the four hits, three came from the final three spots in the batting order. -- Wendell Rijo, Jordan Weems, Ali Solis and Tzu-Wei Lin recorded hits in the loss. HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (12-8): W, 14-7, at Frederick (Orioles) -- Salem scored 10 runs with two outs in the eighth inning to come away with a wild win. In the inning they had four RBI walks, a RBI hit-by-pitch for Ben Moore, a RBI single by Mauricio Dubon and a three-run homer by Andrew Benintendi, his first of the season. The homer extended his hit streak to 16 games. -- Dedgar Jimenez started and went 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits, while walking two and striking out two. Adam Lau was able to get the win despite allowing two runs in 2 1/3 innings of relief. -- Three members of the lineup recorded three-hit games -- Dubon, Nick Longhi and Rafael Devers. One of Devers' hits was a home run and he finished the game with four RBIs. Devers is hitting .149 on the season, but the two-hit game should get him some momentum moving forward. -- Yoan Moncada's hit streak ended at 15 games as he went 0-for-4 with a walk. SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (10-10): L, 5-3, at Delmarva (Orioles) -- With the game tied at three, Delmarva scored two runs in the eighth inning off Anyelo Leclerc to come away with a win. It was his only inning of work. Daniel Gonzalez started the game and took a no-decision. He went four innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits. -- Luis Alexander Basabe paced the offense as he went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored to raise his average to .260 on the season. -- Luis Alejandro Basabe wasn't too shabby either as he went 2-for-4 at the top of the order with a double and a triple. -- First baseman Josh Ockimey went 1-for-4 with a double and is now hitting .304 this year. -- As a team, Greenville went 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position in the loss.
