Rain managed to doom three games out of four on Monday, but the minor league teams got back to action last night.
Pawtucket W 3-2 (In 10)
Christian Vazquez: 0-5, 3 K
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-4
Dan Butler: 1-4, 2B, K
Craig Breslow: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Chris Hernandez: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Alex Wilson: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Rich Hill: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Pawtucket W 7-1
Brock Holt: 1-3, BB, SB
Alex Hassan: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-4, HR, K
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 2B, K
Chrstian Vazquez: 0-4
Dan Butler: 1-4, 2B, 2 K
Allen Webster: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
Drake Britton: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
Well, if you're going to break an 0-for, Ryan Lavarnway has the right way to do it. Christian Vazquez, unfortunately, has taken up the streak in his stead, though his early success has provided a buffer for his numbers.
Meawnhile, Allen Webster has a solid night coming off an unfortunate first outing. The strikeout numbers aren't flashy, but Webster is the sort of guy who has the stuff to make batters miss if he can just avoid giving them freebies, so it's hard not to be pleased with a quiet game like this.
Portland L 1-10
Mookie Betts: 0-2, 2 BB
Deven Marrero: 1-4
Travis Shaw: 0-3
Henry Ramos: 1-4, K
Blake Swihart: 2-4
Sean Coyle: 0-4, 2 K
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
A couple of good performances from the two most important names makes even this drubbing something of a success.
Salem W 12-11
Brian Johnson: 4.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
The bad news is that the one team that can't be stopped is also the one team that basically entered the year with no real promise. The good news is that if the team keeps on performing quite so well we'll likely have at least one obscure player shine through.
Greenville L 1-10
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-1, 2 BB
Manuel Margot: 1-4
Wendell Rijo: 0-2, 2 BB, K
Tzu-Wei Lin has now reached base in nine of his sixteen trips to the plate. Is that good? That seems good.
