Red Sox minor lines: Can't have it all

Jim Rogash

Last night was incredible for Red Sox fans, setting a high bar that the minor leagues didn't quite live up to.

Pawtucket L 2-6

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, 2B, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, K

Chris Hernandez: 4.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K
Alex Wilson: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Will Middlebrooks sits a day after getting himself ejected arguing a call, and Jackie Bradley Jr. hits the DL with elbow inflammation, making Pawtucket all about Xander, depending on who's pitching.

Portland L 5-6

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 0-3, 2 BB, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, BB
Travis Shaw: 1-5, K

Keith Couch: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Noe Ramirez: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

That's not the best way to maintain a .400 OBP by Cecchini, but it does do that.

Salem L 0-5

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 1-4, K
Keury De La Cruz: 0-4, K, POCS
Blake Swihart: 2-4, 2B, K, SB, POCS
Mookie Betts: 0-4, 2 K
Cody Koback: 0-3

Blake Swihart stolen bases don't really look like they're going to be a thing going forward. 7-for-14 so far this year.

Greenville L 3-4

Box Score

Kendrick Perkins: 1-3, 2B, BB, K

Brian Johnson: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

How big of a departure from the norm is this for Johnson? He hadn't walked more than two batters in his previous nine starts.

Lowell W 7-1

Box Score

Forrestt Allday: 1-4, BB
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Williams Jerez: 1-4, 2B, K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

Those four strikeouts are Stankiewicz' first true outcomes in three appearances.

GCL Red Sox L 1-3

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-4, 3 K, E
Jordon Austin: 0-4, 2 K
Nick Longhi: 0-4, 2 K
Jon Denney: 0-2, 2 BB

Nick Longhi sighting! Not a good one, but rookie ball, so who cares all that much?
