Pawtucket L 4-5
Jose Iglesias hasn't be as consistent in the minors, but he already has as many long balls as he had in all of 2012.
Portland W 7-1
Anthony Ranaudo: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
There are more walks than you'd like there from Anthony Ranaudo, but given that they weren't at all a problem in his first two outings, it's nothing to really worry about at all.
Salem W 7-4
Mike Augliera: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Noe Ramirez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Cecchini stole 51 bases in 57 attempts last year, but it's taken him nine tries to get to six successes this year. That's not the biggest surprise given that scouts thought a decent amount of that would go away at higher levels against better catchers. Still, it's nice to see him having some success in that area, since he's already doing everything else well.

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
