Red Sox minor lines: Starring Rubby De La Rosa, Matt Barnes

J. Meric

Rubby De La Rosa and Matt Barnes lead the way in a day full of pitching.

Pawtucket W 4-0

Box Score

Jose Iglesias: 0-3, BB, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-2
Bryce Brenz: 2-4, 2B
Brock Holt: 2-4, E
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-2, BB, K

Rubby De La Rosa: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K
Chris Hernandez: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

Rubby's first three games saw him toss just six innings, allowing ten earned runs with as many walks as strikeouts. Since then, he's thrown 14 innings, not allowing anyone to cross the plate, striking out 19 and walking four. Rust-be-gone.

Portland L 4-5

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-3, 2 BB
Travis Shaw: 0-5, 3 K
Michael Almanzar: 1-3, BB, K, SB
Christian Vazquez: 1-4, 2 K

Matt Barnes: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 1 HR
Daniel Bard: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB

Xander is hitting over .300 now, so that didn't take long. Barnes has had some home run troubles so far, symptomatic of his greater fly ball issues in Double-A, but that's all that's been bothering him these last few starts. We won't talk about Daniel Bard. Perhaps ever again.

Salem L 8-9

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-3, BB, SB
Garin Cecchini: 1-3, SB
Keury De La Cruz: 0-5, 2 K
Brandon Jacobs: 2-5, 2 HR, K
David Renfroe: 2-5, 2 K
Blake Swihart: 2-4, 2B
Henry Ramos: 1-4, HR

Henry Owens: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 8 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 3 HR
Noe Ramirez: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R< 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K

Henry Owens was bound to have a bad game at some point, and Brandon Jacobs was bound to have a good one. It's a reminder of the raw tools Jacobs has but hasn't managed to harness yet as a professional.

Greenville W 6-5

Box Score

Cody Koback: 2-4, BB, K

Frank Montas: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR

That's Montas' first walk since April 18. Since then, he's struck out 25 batters.
