Red Sox minor lines: Brandon Workman moves up

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Workman makes his first Triple-A start, Xander Bogaerts gets back to hitting.

Pawtucket W 5-3

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-6, 2B, K, SB
Will Middlebrooks: 1-5, BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-4, BB, K
Bryce Brenzt: 3-5, 2B, HR
Brock Holt: 2-5, HR

Brandon Workman: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
Alex Wilson: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Not exactly a sizzling debut for Workman, but certainly not bad for his first start in the highest level of minor league ball.

Portland W 4-1

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-3, 3B, BB, K
Travis Shaw: 0-3, BB, K

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Keith Couch is back to starting, it seems. And at least last night it suited him well.

Salem Game 1 L 1-4 (In 7)

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 2-3, BB
Garin Cecchini: 2-4
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, K
Blake Swihart: 0-3, BB, K
Henry Ramos: 1-3, SB

Mike Augliera: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Salem Game 2 W 7-4

Box Score

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

Over his last ten games, Garin Cecchini is hitting .333/.487/.400. It's a testament to his performance this year that it almost feels like he's in a slump.

Greenville L 3-6 (In 7)

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 1-3, 2B, K
Cody Koback: 0-3, 2 K
Jose Vinicio: 0-3

Yunior Ortega: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Called after seven because of rain, or because of Greenville?
