Pawtucket W 8-7
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-5, 3 K, SB
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, BB
Xander Bogaerts: 0-3, BB, 2 K, E
Rubby De La Rosa: 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Not Rubby's best outing, but a reasonable bounce-back from an implosion in his last trip to the mound.
Portland W 8-5 (In 15)
Christian Vazquez: 3-7, BB, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 1-7, BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 2-8, K, POCS
Brandon Jacobs: 1-2, 2B
Kolbrin Vitek: 3-6, 2B, K, CS
Keith Couch: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
Woah, those are...quite a few big numbers. This is the second day in a row where Garin Cecchini has gone 1-for-7, though at least this time he picked up a walk.
And there, of course, is the last night for Brandon Jacobs, obviously cut short by virtue of the Thornton trade. He was often frustrating, but in the end, he played a part.
Salem W 4-3
Henry Ramos: 0-4, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 0-4, K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2 K
Blake Swihart: 1-3, BB
Mookie Betts: 0-4
14 tough at bats for Mookie Betts to start his High-A performance. After a breakout year in Greenville, though, he doesn't need to do that much more in 2013. We're going to pay attention next year no matter how he finishes this season.
Lowell L 5-6
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, 2 BB
Manuel Margot: 2-4, BB, 3 SB
Kendrick Perkins: 0-4, K
Williams Jerez: 0-4
Corey Littrell: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Margot, who has been getting on base quite a bit of late, finally gets some separation between his stolen bases and caught stealing numbers.
GCL Red Sox
Jon Denney: 0-4, K
