FRIDAY, MAY 30, 2014
• ALEX HASSAN was recalled by the Red Sox. Hassan played at Duke from 2007-09 before being selected in the 20th round (618th overall) of the 2009 MLB Draft by the Red Sox.
• NATE FREIMAN had a game-winning single in the ninth inning to send the River Cats to an 8-7 victory over the Albuquerque Isotopes.
SATURDAY, MAY 31, 2014
• JAKE LEMMERMAN hit a two-run homer & a two-run single in the San Antonio Missions' 12-4 rout of Arkansas.
• MARCUS STROMAN makes a splash in his first MLB start.


Backed by a seven-run first inning, the righthander from Medford pitched six strong innings as the Blue Jays beat the Royals, 12-2, at the Rogers Centre.


"It was awesome to pitch with that kind of run support," said Stroman. "I felt no pressure and could really attack the zone ... I definitely like starting better than the relief role. It was amazing to get my first major-league start. I felt really comfortable and like I belonged."


Stroman (2-0) allowed one run and five hits. The former Duke star walked none and struck out six. "I thought he was terrific," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He showed us something."

• A two-run single in the eighth by WILL PIWNICA-WORMS gave the Potomac Nationals a 12-8 lead going into the final frame of a 12-11 victory over the Salem Red Sox.
Massachusetts native ALEX HASSAN made his big league debut in Boston's 4-0 win over Tampa Bay, playing right field and batting sixth. After striking out in his first at bat, Hassan later collected his first career hit and also added a walk. "Not really nervous. I'm just excited," Hassan said before the game. "I feel ready to go and hopefully I can help out this team in some way."


MONDAY, JUNE 2, 2014

• WILL PIWNICA-WORMS drove in the game-tying run in the ninth to help the Potomac Nationals to a 5-4 walk-off victory over the Salem Red Sox.
