Red Sox minor lines: Anthony Ranaudo bounces back, Garin Cecchini rolls on

USA TODAY Sports

Anthony Ranaudo bounced back from a mediocre start, while Garin Cecchini just kept rolling.

Pawtucket L 4-6

Box Score

Jose Iglesias: 0-4
Brock Holt: 0-4, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, 2B, K, 2 SB

Jose Iglesias is hitting a mere .216. Even if you're willing to write some of that off as post-demotion letdown, it's also a reminder that ground balls finding holes is not an entirely sustainable strategy.

Portland W 3-2

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 3B
Michael Almanzar: 1-4
Kolbrin Vitek: 1-4, 2B

Anthony Ranaudo: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Keith Couch: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 HR

Ranaudo bounced back from his last mediocre start, and now holds a 1.38 ERA through nearly 40 innings.

Salem L 3-4

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-5, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 1-4
Garin Cecchini: 2-3, 2B, HR, BB, K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, HR, K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, 2B, BB< 2 K
David Renfroe: 0-4
Henry Ramos: 0-4, 2 K, A

Sean Coyle burst out of the gates with some impressive speed, but has petered out with a dramatic slump that has his OBP down under .300. Garin Cecchini, the more steady producer, has just kept rolling, and is hitting .376/.471/.675 through his first 32 games. I think that officially falls into the category of "totally nuts".

Greenville L 6-10

Box Score

Cody Koback: 1-3, 2 BB, K
Jose Vinicio: 0-4

Pat Light: 3.1 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 2 HR
Yunior Ortega: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Pat Light has been bouncing around from mediocre start to mediocre start, and it's been unclear which direction, he'd end up breaking in, exactly. Now we see, and we wish we hadn't.
