Red Sox minor lines: Two slow days

Rain kept the Red Sox down on Tuesday, and Wednesday didn't quite pick up the slack.

Usually when we're packing two days worth of games into one Minor Lines, the result is plenty of action. Not so this time. Rain has kept Portland completely out of action, while Pawtucket had no opportunity to make up their own rain out with a double header the day after. Toss in the fact that Salem has actually managed to produce a game which didn't have a single thing worth mentioning, and you've got...this:

Pawtucket W 7-6

Brock Holt: 3-5, 2B
Alex Hassan: 3-5, 2 2B, E, A
Ryan Lavarnway: 3-4, 2B, BB
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, BB, K, A
Dan Butler: 2-5, 2B

Brandon Workman: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Drake Britton: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

While Workman hasn't pitched much this year, I'd hesitate to call this rust simply because Workman didn't really give up all that much. A double, two singles, and a walk isn't that much offense over the course of 10 outs. But when it comes all at once it can produce disproportionate damage.

Salem L 1-2 (In 7)

Simon Mercedes: 4.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Mercedes saves Salem from having two unmentionable games. A nice bounce-back performance after getting absolutely demolished last Friday.

Oh, and remember that 6-0 start to the season? Well, the Salem Sox are now 6-7.

Greenville L 7-8

Manuel Margot: 1-3, BB, K
Wendell Rijo: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K

Pat Light: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

Greenville L 6-2

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-4, K
Manuel Margot: 1-4, K
Wendell Rijo: 0-3, BB, K

Not a banner pair of games for our intrepid trio of heroes, but it's Pat Light whose outing is most concerning after starting the season with two excellent performances. Don't want to see him sliding back into 2013 habits.
