Here’s a look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (28-28): W, 4-1, at Norfolk (Mets)

— Left-hander Roenis Elias threw the first complete game of the season for Pawtucket, surrendering only one run and six hits in nine innings. He struck out eight and walked just two batters in the dominant performance. In his two starts against Norfolk, he has tallied 21 total strikeouts.

Sunday’s win gives Elias, 27, his third victory in his last four starts. On the year, the Cuba native is 3-3 with a 4.00 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP with Pawtucket. In his third season in Triple-A, he sits at second on the team in innings pitched (54) and leads all pitchers in strikeouts (53).

— Leadoff hitter Ryan LaMarre got Pawtucket on the board first with a solo home run in the third inning. It’s his third homer in his last seven games, and the 27-year-old finished the game 2-for-5 with a double, a run and an RBI. LaMarre now is batting .302/.346/.460 in 34 games with the PawSox. In his last seven games, the University of Michigan product is .322 with five RBIs and six runs scored.

— Deven Marrero, Boston’s No. 9 prospect at MLB.com, went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the game. He scored the go-ahead run in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly. Sunday’s game was his second multi-hit performance in a row after going 22 games without recording multiple hits. In 49 games with Pawtucket, Marrero, 25, is hitting .211/.255/.258 with 15 runs and 15 RBIs. He ranks third on the team in hits (41) and is tied for second in stolen bases (5).

DOUBLE-A PORTLAND SEA DOGS (18-36): Doubleheader at Hartford (Rockies) postponed due to rain.

HIGH-A SALEM RED SOX (37-20): L, 1-0 in 5 innings (rain), at Lynchburg (Indians)

— Sunday’s game was cut short due to rain, which means Salem starter Jalen Beeks was defeated despite allowing one run and two hits while striking out five. He let up a run on a sacrifice ground out in the bottom of the second inning, and that was all Lynchburg needed to escape with the win.

Beeks, 22, has not recorded a win in his last five starts, and now is 4-3 on the year with a 3.34 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Batters are hitting only .274 against the left-hander this season.

— Offensively, Salem could only muster three hits in five innings. Mike Meyers, Nick Longhi, and Rafael Devers recorded hits, but the Red Sox were unable to get on the board in time.

SINGLE-A GREENVILLE DRIVE (28-27): No game scheduled.

The Drive had the day off and hit the road Monday for a three-game series at Kannapolis (White Sox).
