Pawtucket L 2-6
Brock Holt: 2-3, 2B
Ryan Roberts: 1-3, K
Daniel Nava: 1-2, BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-2
Bryce Brentz: 0-3
Garin Cecchini: 1-2, BB
Christian Vazuqez: 2-2, BB
Rubby De La Rosa: 3 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 4 K
I think it's about time we called time of death on the brief resurgence of Rubby De La Rosa as a starting pitcher. 16 walks in 20 innings is pretty damning, and his presence in the rotation was kind of a fluke to begin with. Nothing wrong with being a reliever.
Also of note: while it's hard to say that Brock Holt is still on a hot streak given the 0-fors he mixed in about a week back, he's rattled off two hits in each of his last three games. There's still some embers glowing, at least, which is not irrelevant given Will Middlebrooks' struggles.
Portland L 2-4
Mookie Betts: 2-4, 2B, BB, K, 2 SB
Deven Marrero: 1-4, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 1-4, BB
Blake Swihart: 2-3, HR, BB, SB
Mookie Betts, on the other hand? Still on a hot streak. Obviously. I'm not saying anything I haven't said before, but he's really just done everything for the last year. 17 stolen bases in 20 attempts, 18 walks to 12 strikeouts, and plenty of power to go with it.
Blake Swihart's resume isn't quite as impeccable, but this game is pretty much the ideal for him. That's his third walk, homer, and stolen base of the year. Obviously this being just his third walk as late as May 13 is pretty iffy, but he's cut down on his strikeouts of late, and it's good to see the expected pop starting to shine through in Double-A.
Greenville W 7-5
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, 2 BB
Wendell Rijo: 1-3, HR, BB, K
Manuel Margot: 0-4, K
Ty Buttrey: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Ty Buttrey's game is hardly one to write home about, but given how far behind he seemed in his first two outings, it's hard not to call this a positive trend.
