Red Sox minor lines: The return of Sean Coyle

USA TODAY Sports

Salem's dynamic duo of infielders put on another show Wednesday night. Meanwhile Xander Bogaerts has already equaled his 2012 performance in one category.

Portland L 6-8

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, 3B, BB, K
Travis Shaw: 1-4, BB, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 2-5, 2B

Xander Bogaerts had three triples in all of 2012. He has already matched that figure. Even without the long ball, those power numbers are creeping upwards.

Salem W 5-4

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 2-5, HR, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 2-3, 2B, 2 BB, E
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, 2B, BB, K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, 2B, BB, K, 2 SB
Henry Ramos: 1-2, 2 BB, K, CS

Sean Coyle has been missing for the past week, but clearly the absence didn't exactly disrupt his momentum. That's Coyle's fourth homer in 10 games, which is quite a lot when you consider that he hit just 9 in 116 last year. Or, really, even when you don't consider that.

Greenville L 5-7

Box Score

Jose Vinicio: 1-4, 3B

Frank Montas: 4 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Madison Younginer: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

The bad news for Frank Montas is that he's still giving up tons of runs. The good news for Frank Montas is that this time there's actually some bright spots. Upward and onward!
