Red Sox minor lines: The best name in the system debuts

Bob DeChiara-US PRESSWIRE

Anthony Ranaudo suffered a bit of a letdown, but the real story here is Forrestt Allday. Because his name is Forrestt Allday.

Pawtucket W 6-5

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-5, 2B, BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 0-4, BB, 2 K
Xander Bogaerts: 0-4, BB, E
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, 2 BB, K, SB

Perhaps a bit lost in the up-and-down shuffling of Jackie Bradley Jr. is how fantastic he's been in his first exposure to Triple-A pitching. While he set the bar unreasonably high with his spring training performance, his season-to-date has to be viewed as missing zero steps in jumping to Triple-A after just 61 games in Portland.

Portland L 8-9 (In 10)

Box Score

Michael Almanzar: 1-6
Travis Shaw: 2-5, HR, BB, K
Christian Vazquez: 0-4, BB

Anthony Ranaudo: 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 2 HR

Not exactly the perfect follow-up to a record setting night from Ranaudo, if also not terribly concerning. Those are the first homers he's allowed since April.

Lowell W 5-1

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-2, 2 BB
Manuel Margot: 2-4, SB
Kendrick Perkins: 4-4, 2B
Forrestt Allday: 0-2, 2 BB, K
Williams Jerez: 0-4, 2 K

Mario Alcantara: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K

Normally an eighth-round pick signed for a pittance would be worth keeping an eye on, and little more. But this one is named Forrestt Allday. Not a team in the league wouldn't want that name in the system.

Also, I guess Perkins had a pretty good day. Y'know, if you like hits.
