TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (21-24): W, 3-1 vs. Durham  

— The PawSox swept the Bulls to continue a five-game winning streak.

— Pablo Sandoval recorded his third double since starting his rehab assignment in Pawtucket. He has been out since April 24 with a right knee sprain. Despite the double, the third baseman is just 4-for-25 in seven games. In 17 games with the Red Sox this year, he has tallied three home runs and 10 RBIs, while batting .213.

— Right-hander Brandon Workman (2-1) got the win after two innings pitched, allowing no hits and recording two strikeouts. He finished with a 2.07 ERA in May.

DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (22-23): W, 8-7 vs. Trenton

— Deiner Lopez singled to left field which scored Cole Sturgeon for Sea Dogs’ third walk-off win in the 2017 season. Lopez was 2-for-4 in the game. During his 18 games in Portland, he is batting .321 with three RBIs.

— Right-handed pitcher Travis Lakins (0-2) showed improvement in the first five innings of the game. He allowed just one hit and three runs, while tallying six strikeouts. Prior to Monday’s game, he lost two in a row to Hartford and New Hampshire and allowed five and seven hits respectively. Lakins now has a 4.22 ERA.

HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (31-20): W, 4-3 at Lynchburg

— In the bottom of the fourth, Josh Ockimey blasted his seventh home run of the year to center field to put the Red Sox on the board. This season Ockimey is batting .309 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs in 48 games played.

— Bobby Poyner (2-0) recorded his sixth save of the season after pitching a perfect ninth inning. The lefty pitcher has a 2.45 ERA this season and has racked up 32 strikeouts.

— Daniel McGrath (1-4) got the win in five innings pitched with five strikeouts and allowing just two hits. This game was an extreme improvement after his last seven games where he allowed five or more hits in each game.

SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (30-19) L, 3-2 vs. Rome (11 innings)

— Nick Sciortino hit a solo home run, his first of the season, in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game at two.

— Rome got the win thanks to a Justin Ellison home run in the 11th inning off of Steve Negosek, who was working his third inning. The Drive threatened in the bottom half of the inning, but hit into a game-ending double play.

— Game 2 of the doubleheader was postponed due to rain.
