Pawtucket W 5-4
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-4, BB, 2 K
Bryce Brentz: 1-5, K
Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, BB
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-3, K, SB
Clayton Mortensen: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Chris Hernandez: 2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 1 K
The Sox have been yanking Hernandez back and forth from reliever to starter like he's Joba Chamberlain. It's not working out too well for him.
Portland L 0-3
Garin Cecchini: 2-4, K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, 2B, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 1-3, K
Christian Vazquez: 1-3
Anthony Ranaudo: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, E
Ranaudo will live with the wild-but-effective outing so long as they don't get too common. Two four-walk games in his last four outings isn't ideal, but it's not a pattern yet.
Salem L 2-8
Henry Ramos: 0-5, K
Deven Marrero: 2-4, 2 K, SB
Keury De La Cruz: 0-3, BB
Brandon Jacobs: 0-4, 2 K
Blake Swihart: 0-2, 2 BB
Cody Koback: 1-4, K
David Renfroe: 1-4, K, E
Mike Augliera: 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 2 HR
An eight-game hitting streak ends for Blake Swihart on a night with a .500 OBP.
Greenville W 7-6
Mookie Betts: 1-2, 2B, 3 BB
Justin Haley: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 6 K
So let me get this straight...pitchers have started pitching around Mookie Betts...and it's not working? Who do the Drive think they are? A baseball team.
Lowell W 1-0 (In 6)
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-3, SB
Manuel Margot: 0-2, BB
Williams Jerez: 0-1, BB, K
This is Jerez' tenth walk...
Of his career...
In about 250 plate appearances.
He may know how to hit peanuts, but he seems to need a lesson in taking them.
