Pawtucket W 5-0
Brock Holt: 2-4, 2B, BB, K, SB
Alex Hassan: 0-5, 2 K
Daniel Nava: 1-5, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-5, 3 K
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, 2 BB
Garin Cecchini: 2-4
Christian Vazquez: 1-4, K
Allen Webster: 5 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Allen Webster has now allowed six walks in his last 24 innings of work after surrendering 12 in his first 20. His K:BB on the season is still a hugely unimpressive 26:18, but that number will get a lot better if he maintains the pace he's set over the past few weeks.
Portland W 5-2
Mookie Betts: 1-3, BB, K, E
Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB
Travis Shaw: 1-3, BB, CS
Blake Swihart: 1-4, 2B
Henry Ramos: 0-3, BB
Brian Johnson: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
Noe Ramirez: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
So Brian Johnson has responded well to the increased challenge in Double-A. The lefty has faced almost exclusively right-handed hitting to boot.
Salem W 5-3
Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
So Austin Maddox is kind of weird right now. Over his 20 innings of work, Maddox has struck out 19 batters and allowed just three walks. He's also producing a lot more ground balls than fly balls. He's not even allowed a ton of hits--less than one per inning, leaving him with a WHIP of 1.12.
He's also got a 6.41 ERA as the result of five home runs. Which seems discordant.
Greenville L 2-5
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-3, 2B, BB, K
Wendell Rijo: 1-4, K
Manuel Margot: 0-4, 2 K
Trey Ball: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 0 K
Just repeat after me: Trey Ball is a high-upside project. Trey Ball is a high-upside project. Trey Ball is a high-upside project.
