Charlotte Knights win Game 1 of doubleheader against Pawtucket Red Sox

PAWTUCKET, R.I. The Charlotte Knights defeated a rehab-heavy lineup for the Red Sox on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader, winning 3-0 in seven innings.

Clay Buchholz had been assigned to rehab along with Shane Victorino and Will Middlebrooks, and Buchholz earned the loss, giving up 3 runs in 4 2/3 innings with five strikeouts.

Shortstop Carlos Sanchez led the Knights at the plate with a triple and a home run for a .300 average at game’s end.

• Pawtucket won the second game 3-0, led by 2 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs from Mookie Betts.

• The Chicago White Sox traded Kannapolis starting pitcher Jake Sanchez to the Oakland Athletics for outfielder Michael Taylor. Sanchez will reportedly be assigned to Class A Stockton while the White Sox said Taylor will join Charlotte.
