Pawtucket W 9-4
Allen Webster: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Chris Carpenter: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
Allen Webster's control issues came early, but he settled in from there to have a very good night. The Sox will hopefully be able to turn to him at some point during the season when their rotation needs a boost.
On the hitting side of things, Ryan Lavarnway is on the board in game two, and in no small way, too. Nice to see the Sox romp on the Yankees' vaunted (or, at least, once vaunted) young pitcher Dellin Betances. We can beat 'em at the top two levels!
Portland W 7-4
Brandon Workman: 5 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
Make that three. Xander Bogaerts has his first of what will hopefully be many hits this season, and Stephen Drew doubled off the wall in what could be his last game.
Sam Schluth has a report of the game here, for those interested in that unusual line from Brandon Workman.
Salem L 1-11
Mickey Pena: 4 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
That's a very 2011 Sean Coyle performance. Just one, but man, it'd be a pretty big boost to the system if he started looking like he did back before the injuries. Otherwise, a pretty mediocre day for the Salem Sox, shut down by Devin Jones. He was quite good last year, though, so it's not like there's no precedent for being held in check by him.
Greenville W 4-2
Jose Vinicio: 0-5, 2 K
Cody Koback: 1-3, BB, K, 2 SB
Kendrick Perkins: 2-4, K
Justin Haley: 3.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 6 K
Greenville is looking like a bit of a weak link in the system in terms of interesting names early on. The good news is that every day should bring with it an interesting pitcher. Lots of the arms from Boston's pitching-heavy 2012 class have found their way here, and Frank Montas will make his full-season debut shortly.
