Red Sox Minor Lines 6/1, 6/2: Runs, Runs, Runs


Pawtucket W 8-7

Box Score

Che-Hsuan Lin: 1-6
Darnell McDonald: 2-3, 2B, HR
Lars Anderson: 0-1, 4 BB
-Such is the new Lars this year. All walk, no pop.
Mike McKenry: 2-5, 2B
Jose Iglesias: 1-4, BB, E

Kevin Millwood: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
-In case you thought his time with the Yankees was rock bottom...
Jason Rice: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
-He's not ever going to make the bullpen with the command he has right now.

Sean Coyle strikes out a bit much for my taste and--

Oh, God...

Why, Stolmy, why?

After the jump.

Portland W 18-9

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-7, 2 2B, 2 K
Alex Hassan: 1-5, 2B, 2 BB, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 4-5, HR, BB, K
-Lavarnway is now up to 12 homers, tied for second in the system, with an .858 OPS and a rapidly-improving BB:K rate. The slump seems to be over, and one of the team's best minor league hitters is back on track. Now if he could only catch...
Will Middlebrooks: 2-3, 2 BB
Tim Federowicz: 4-5, BB
Oscar Tejeda: 1-5, BB, 2 K

Stolmy Pimentel: 1.1 IP, 5 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 HR
-Simply put, Stolmy seems to have nothing. Now, it's possible this is because the Sox are trying to make him work on pitches he's not particularly strong with (see: Wilson, Alex before this last month) , but right now it seems the promotion after only a decent year in Portland was perhaps too aggressive (unless, of course, something is physically wrong with him). Stolmy is allowing a ton of fly balls, not picking up whiffs, and just getting knocked around on a regular basis.
Cesar Cabral: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K


Salem L 7-9 (In 11)

Box Score

Pete Hissey: 2-4, 2 BB, K, SB
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-4, 2 BB, 2 K, E
Reynaldo Rodriguez: 1-5, 2B, BB, K

Junichi Tazawa: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Kendal Volz: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K


Greenville W 14-12

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 1-5, 3B, 0 BB, 2 K, 2 SB, E
-The bad news is that Coyle's BABIP has come up towards a more normal number at .280 without his OPS improving (not that it needs to). On the other hand, Coyle's also shown some very impressive speed so far this season--the likes of which usually results in a higher BABIP.
Miles Head: 2-5, HR, 3 K
David Renfroe: 1-5, 3 K
Henry Ramos: 3-5, 2 2B, K, A



Pawtucket W 8-0

Box Score

Che-Hsuan Lin: 1-3, BB
Lars Anderson: 0-4, BB
Luis Exposito: 1-4, 2B
Jose Iglesias: 2-4

Kyle Weiland: 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K
-Weiland is having a very Doubront-like year right now, especially with his K:BB ratio spiking lately.
Michael Bowden: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R , 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K


Portland W 1-0

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, BB, K
Alex Hassan: 0-3, BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-3, 2B, K
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, HR, K
Tim Federowicz: 0-4
Oscar Tejeda: 1-4


Salem W 3-2

Box Score

Pete Hissey: 0-4, K
Reynaldo Rodriguez: 1-3, 2B


Greenville L 8-9 (In 10)

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 1-5, 2B, 2 K
Christian Vazquez: 2-5, HR, 2 K
Miles Head: 2-4, BB, 2 K
Brandon Jacobs: 0-5, 2 K
Henry Ramos: 2-4, K, E
David Renfroe: 1-4, K

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
-In his first start of the year, it's unsurprising that most of Couch's trouble came when he passed his usual innings count. Still sitting pretty with a 42:6 K:BB figure, though.
Juan Rodriguez: 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
