Pawtucket W 6-3
I wish Pawtucket's prospects would perform like Pawtucket's major league depth...
Michael Bowden: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Kris Johnson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Dustin Richardson: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
-Hasn't shown the same promise as a pen arm since the start of fall ball, really.
Lars Anderson is pretty awesome after the jump!
Portland Game 1 L 1-3 (In 7)
Stephen Fife: 4 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
-Fell apart in the top of the 4th. Was having a really good game to that point. A run scored in the first after reaching on a pathetic blooper pop-up, but other than that it had been very smooth sailing.
Portland Game 2 W 2-1
Ryan Kalish: 0-2, BB, K
Che-Hsuan Lin: 0-2, BB, K,SB
-Lin's average is .250. His OBP is .385. Give me some power, and we'll call it a day.
Luis Exposito: 1-3, 2B, K
Lars Anderson: 1-2, 2B, BB, K
-Hello again, Mr. Anderson!
Jose Iglesias: 0-2, K
-Not the greatest day for Jose, though.
Casey Kelly: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
-Not much good contact on Kelly at all. There was an infield hit, and a flair over 2B for the hits. Threw a ton of strikes, changed speeds well. Only 39 pitches used to get through 3.
Salem W 9-3
For all that Portland is the team that's supposed to be packed to the brim with Talent, Salem is for all-the-world looking like the best team in the system.
Pete Hissey: 0-5
Oscar Tejeda: 3-5, HR
-Having a lot of success hit-wise to start the season. 8:1 K:BB though. What happens when that .481 BABIP starts dropping?
Anthony Rizzo: 3-4, BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-5
-A disappointing day for young Ryan.
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, 2B, K
Stolmy Pimentel: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 HR
Greenville L 3-6
Unfortunately, Drake Britton will be hitting the DL for a short while with a bicep strain
Derrik Gibson: 0-4, BB, K, SB
Ken Roque: 0-5, 3 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-4, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 2-3, 2B, BB
-An underwhelming triple slash line, but you get the feeling some stuff is clicking. He still won't turn 20 until December.
Reymond Fuentes: 1-3, BB
-Not an impressive start for last year's first overall, though with his speed you might expect a BABIP over .304.
Yeiper Castillo: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 3 K
