LOWELL, Mass. (AP/CBS) — First, Bucky Dent tormented the Boston Red Sox. Now his son is doing it, too.

The Red Sox’ Class A affiliate Lowell Spinners were two outs away from their first perfect game on Wednesday night, when Auburn Doubledays shortstop Cody Dent, the son of Bucky, ruined it with a bloop single.

Jamie Callahan had struck out nine in six innings and reliever Mike Adams threw a perfect seventh and eighth before Taylor Grover came on to try to finish the gem in the ninth against the Washington affiliate.

Stats: Doubledays-Spinners Box Score

Spinners first baseman Nathan Minnich made a diving catch for the first out of the ninth, but Lowell’s good fortune then ran out when Dent stepped to the plate.

Dent, whose father hit the key homer for the New York Yankees against the Red Sox at Fenway Park in the 1978 AL East playoff game, blooped a ball over shortstop Tzu-Wei Lin to end the bid for perfection.

Chances are he won’t earn the nickname Cody “Bleeping” Dent, as the Spinners won the game 7-0.

Dent was drafted by the Nationals in June’s Amateur Draft in the 22nd round out of the University of Florida.

Callahan, who improved to 3-1 with the win, was named New York-Penn League Pitcher of the Week on Monday. He was a second-round pick by the Red Sox in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft.
