Red Sox minor lines: Anthony Ranaudo moves up, makes Buffalo Bisons sit down

USA TODAY Sports

Anthony Ranaudo made his Triple-A debut in style, recording six shutout innings against the Buffalo Bisons.

Pawtucket W 8-1

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-4, 2B, BB, K
Will Middlebrooks: 2-5, K, E
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, K, SB

Anthony Ranaudo: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

While Owens' debut in Double-A was impressive, Ranaudo's is just downright surprising. For a guy who seemed to be fading late in the season (albeit with a reasonable excuse), making an opposing Triple-A team look this powerless in his first game at the highest minor league level is an entirely welcome shock.

Portland L 4-6

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 0-3, BB, K, POCS, E
Christian Vazquez: 2-4, 2B
Travis Shaw: 0-4, K

One way or another, Christian Vazquez has bounced back from a terrible June, and is hitting .349/.438/.444 since the Double-A All-Star break. His bat is unlikely to ever be impressive, but if he can do anything with it, his glove should carry him to at least a decent bench job in the majors.

Greenville W 8-6

Box Score

Kendrick Perkins: 2-4, 2B, HR

Is August the month when Kendrick Perkins finally shows the ability to hit? Probably not, but we don't have much better to watch for in Greenville, so...

Lowell L 3-11

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-4, K

Ty Buttrey: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Through 37 innings, Ty Buttrey has produced 30 true outcomes, none of them homers. The Twins would love him.
