Red Sox minor lines: Anthony Ranaudo surging forward

USA TODAY Sports

A mid-season swoon made it look like Anthony Ranaudo might be done in by fatigue, but a promotion to Triple-A has seen him return to form.

Pawtucket W 1-0

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 0-1, BB, K
Brock Holt: 1-3, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-4
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-3, K

Anthony Ranaudo: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Through 20 innings in Triple-A, Anthony Ranaudo has a 1.93 ERA. Fewer true outcomes, either good or bad, but he's getting the job done after it looked like fatigue had set in.

Oh, and Jackie Bradley Jr. just got hit a bunch, if you're wondering why there are so few plate appearances represented there.

Portland L 6-8

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 1-4, BB, 3 K, E
Garin Cecchini: 1-3, 2 BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 1-5, 2 K
Christian Vazquez: 1-4, 2B, BB, K
Travis Shaw: 0-2

Even if it feels like Garin Cecchini has fallen off some at the plate, his OBP is still a ridiculous .432. He's got a crazy on-base streak going, and if his hits aren't going too far, they're certainly falling in bunches these days.

Salem W 10-9

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 2-5, 2B, 2 K
Keury De La Cruz: 0-4, BB, 2 K
Mookie Betts: 3-5, 3B, HR
Cody Koback: 1-3, BB

Mike Augliera: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Sean Coyle has eight walks to seven strikeouts since his return to High-A, though a .222 BABIP isn't helping his numbers. Mookie Betts, meanwhile, has even strikeout and walk numbers in his first exposure to the level period, and with a much more reasonable BABIP, is hitting .298/.371/.489--a figure dragged down by a slow start, and then well up by a .995 OPS in August.

Greenville L 2-4

Box Score

Kendrick Perkins: 1-3, BB
Jose Vinicio: 0-4, 2 K

Cody Kukuk: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
Austin Maddox: 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Austin Maddox hasn't allowed an earned run in nine August innings.

Lowell L 1-5

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, BB, E
Manuel Margot: 1-4, K, CS

Corey Littrell: 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

GCL Red Sox L 2-3

Box Score

Kolbrin Vitek: 2-3, 2B, K
Jordon Austin: 0-0, BB
Bryce Brentz: 0-2, K

Hey, they finally found a level Kolbrin Vitek can hit at!
