Alabama Pitts, the celebrated ex-convict, makes his debut with Albany in a twinbill with Syracuse.

2015 – The Red Sox put up a football score in defeating the Mariners, 22 – 10, at Fenway Park. The two teams combine for 7 homers and 39 hits. The Red Sox chase Felix Hernandez with 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings, then both teams go wild in their last two turns at bat, with 7 runs for Boston and 8 for Seattle. Jackie Bradley has a game for the ages, with 3 doubles, 2 homers, 5 runs and 7 RBIs, while Blake Swihart has 4 hits, 4 runs and 3 RBIs and Xander Bogaerts also has 4 hits. Lost in all the scoring, Boston starter Wade Miley has a solid game, giving up only 2 runs in 7 innings to earn the win. The Sox are the first big league team to have 15 runs and 20 hits in back-to-back games since they had done so in 1950, while the Mariners allow the most runs in team history.
