PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) — Dan Butler drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning, leading the Pawtucket Red Sox to a 6-5 win over the Charlotte Knights on Wednesday. With the victory, the Red Sox swept the three-game series.
Noe Ramirez allowed two runs, but struck Eddy Alvarez out with a runner on first to end the game for his fifth save of the season.
The walk by Butler capped a two-run inning and gave the Red Sox a 4-3 lead after Mike Miller drew a bases-loaded walk earlier in the inning.
The Red Sox extended their lead in the seventh when Brian Bogusevic hit a two-run home run.
Charlotte saw its comeback attempt come up short after Casey Gillaspie hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to cut the Pawtucket lead to 6-5.
Bogusevic homered and singled, scoring a pair of runs while also driving home a couple for Pawtucket.
Pawtucket right-hander Justin Haley (2-0) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing three runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings. Opposing starter Carson Fulmer (7-8) took the loss in the International League game after giving up four runs and four hits over 5 1/3 innings.
