Pawtucket L 2-5 (In 15)
Xander Bogaerts: 3-7, 2B
Will Middlebrooks: 2-7, 2 K, SB
Alex Hassan: 1-6, BB, 3 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-6, 2 K
Clayton Mortensen: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Alex Wilson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Interesting to see Clayton Mortensen stretching back out to starting-length appearances. Not that the Sox need all that much in terms of depth in either role right now.
Portland W 9-2
Garin Cecchini: 0-4, 2 K, SB
Michael Almanzar: 1-5, HR, BB, 3 K
Travis Shaw: 1-4, HR, 2 BB, E
Christian Vazquez: 2-5, BB, K, CS
After drawing interest with an early power surge, Almanzar's homers have joined the rest of his numbers in falling off.
Salem W 5-4 (In 11)
Henry Ramos: 1-5, 2 K, CS
Deven Marrero: 0-6, 2 K
Keury De La Cruz: 0-5, BB, 3 K
Blake Swihart: 2-5, K, CS
Mookie Betts: 1-4, BB, 3 K
Cody Koback: 2-4, BB, K
Swihart's terrible July swoon came to an end about a week before the month did; he's on an eight-game hitting streak now.
Greenville L 4-9
Jose Vinicio: 1-5, 3B, K
Kendrick Perkins: 0-2, 2 BB, K, CS
Cody Kukuk: 4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 5 K
Austin Maddox: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
I don't know why so many of us got a little hyped up about Jose Vinicio before the season began...
Lowell L 6-8
Forrestt Allday: 0-4, BB, 2 K, E
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-4, BB, K
Williams Jerez: 2-4, 2B, 3B
GCL Red Sox Game 1 L 3-5 (In 7)
Sean Coyle: 1-3, BB, K
GCL Red Sox Game 2 W 2-1
Nick Longhi: 0-3
Jordon Austin: 1-2
Pawtucket L 3-5
Xander Bogaerts: 0-5, K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-4, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 3-4, 2B, K
Franklin Morales: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Xander Bogaerts does not fail to get on base too often. But exceptions do occur.
Portland W 6-1
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, POCS
Christian Vazquez: 3-5, 2B, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 1-4, HR, BB
Henry Owens: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 11 K
Henry Owens, at least for his first game, makes the hardest jump in the minors look like Babytown frolics.
Salem W 3-0
Henry Ramos: 0-4, K
Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB, K, CS
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, 2B, K
Blake Swihart: 2-4, K
Mookie Betts: 1-4
Cody Koback: 0-3
Mike Augliera: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Mike Augliera keeps rolling, and holds a 3.14 ERA in 43 innings since the Carolina League All-Star break.
Greenville L 3-6
Jose Vinicio: 0-4, K, POCS
Justin Haley: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 8 K
By this point we know Haley can strike batters out at this level. The question is: can he stop walking them?
Lowell W 4-1
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, K
Williams Jerez: 1-2
Corey Littrell: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Littrell has still allowed just the one run through his first six professional appearances.
GCL Red Sox L 8-10
Sean Coyle: 1-3, HR, 2 BB, SB
Jon Denney: 0-4, 3 K
Nick Longhi: 2-4, 2 2B, K, SB, E
Trey Ball: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
So Sean Coyle still remembers how to hit. That's good. It's hard to really depend on him for much after the way his career has gone so far (remember, this was a guy who, as recently as last year, seemed closely tied to Garin Cecchini), but anything they get out of him after this is all upside.
