Red Sox minor lines: The Sea Dogs return

After a couple of water-logged days off, the Portland Sea Dogs were back in action Friday night.

Pawtucket L 3-7

Alex Hassan: 1-4, 3 K
Dan Butler: 1-3, 2B, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-4
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 1-4, HR, K

Allen Webster: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
Rich Hill: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Allen Webster just can't keep the ball in the zone. That's 12 walks now in 20 innings compared to just 11 strikeouts. Perhaps this is the ugliness that comes with actually fixing his greater issues, but I'll need to see the results before I actually buy into that.

Portland W 6-4 (In 7)

Mookie Betts: 1-4
Deven Marrero: 2-4
Travis Shaw: 4-4, HR
Blake Swihart: 1-4, K
Sean Coyle: 1-3, SB
Henry Ramos: 1-3, K, CS

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Noe Ramirez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Portland W 6-0 (In 7)

Mookie Betts: 1-4
Henry Ramos: 1-4, K
Blake Swihart: 2-4, HR, K
Sean Coyle: 0-4, 3 K, E

Portland is back, but our headliner in Mookie Betts was unfortunately not exactly awe-inspiring at 2-for-8. Still, we got some good stuff from elsewhere, with Travis Shaw randomly having an incredible performance, and Blake Swihart breaking out the power swing for the first time this year. The young catcher is hitting .333/.350/.513 in his first 39 at bats in Double-A--a very nice sign for a prospect who has typically struggled on promotion

Salem W 8-2

Brian Johnson: 6 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

The requisite Salem pitcher line, but this time it's a doozy. Good news for Brian Johnson, who had allowed 10 runs in his last eight innings. It'll take more time for his season numbers to recover from that, but six perfect innings certainly seems like a good start.
