Red Sox affiliates
7:05 p.m.
Salem Red Sox – Mike McCarthy (2-1, 3.49 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 27 Ks)
at Myrtle Beach Pelicans – Nick Martinez (3-2, 2.41 ERA, 29 Ks)
NOTE: Salem (15-19) will be looking to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Pelicans, winners of six in a row. Shortstop Deven Marrero was back in the lineup for the first time since April 22nd after a DL stint for a hamstring injury. The 2012 first-rounder went 1-for-4 in his return. Second baseman Sean Coyle has gone hitless in his last 5 games and his average has dropped from .317 to .242 since the start of May.

Greenville Drive – Cody Kukuk (2-3, 4.62 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 22 Ks)
at Ashville Tourists – Eddie Butler (3-1, 1.76 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 38 Ks)
NOTE: The Drive (12-24) had their modest two-game win streak snapped on Sunday. Pat Light had his toughest outing as a pro, allowing 8 runs on 9 hits in just 3 1/3 innings. After their brief four game home stand (which they split with Augusta) Greenville hits the road for a quick three games at Ashville. It will be the first time these two teams have met this season. Mookie Betts brings an 8-game hitting streak into the game.

7:15 p.m.
Pawtucket Red Sox – Terry Doyle (3-2, 2.56 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 33 Ks)
at Charlotte Knights – Zach Stewart (1-4, 4.22 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 30 Ks)
NOTE: Charlotte ended the PawSox (23-14) season-high 6-game win streak with a 6-4 win on Sunday. Jose Iglesias was without a hit for the third straight game and is 0 for his last 12 at-bats. Pawtucket is 8-2 in May as they wrap up their four-game series in Charlotte before returning home. Knights starter Zach Stewart was 3-5 with a 3.94 ERA in 11 starts with the PawSox a season ago after coming over from the Chicago White Sox in the Kevin Youkilis trade.
