Red Sox minor lines: The other Sea Dogs

There's more life in Portland than just Mookie Betts.

Pawtucket W 3-2

Brock Holt: 0-5, K
Ryan Roberts: 2-4, 2B
Daniel Nava: 1-3, BB, SB
Ryan Lavarnway: 3-4, 2B
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, BB, K
Garin Cecchini: 1-4
Dan Butler: 0-4, 2 K

Allen Webster: 6.2 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
Alex Wilson: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Webster has now walked just five batters in his last 19 innings, striking out 12 while allowing four runs. His season ERA stands at 2.77, mind, since he's actually had relatively little difficulty keeping runs off the board period. But it's nice to see some of those peripherals starting to make those results seem at least slightly sustainable.

Portland W 4-1

Mookie Betts: 2-5
Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB, 2 K, E
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 2B, K
Blake Swihart: 1-4
Henry Ramos: 4-4, 2B

Noe Ramirez: 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

While Mookie continues to hit .400, the Sea Dogs have Travis Shaw, Blake Swihart, and Henry Ramos all hitting .300 or better. For Ramos, this might not be terribly sustainable given his strikeout numbers. But both Shaw and Swihart are showing strong contact skills and at least enough power to help mitigate the oftentimes cruel nature of BABIP.


Greenville W 12-2

Tzu-Wei Lin: 4-6, K
Wendell Rijo: 1-5, 2B, BB, 3 K, SB
Manuel Margot: 0-4, BB, SB

Jamie Callahan: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

It's been a while since Tzu-Wei Lin has had a truly positive day at the plate. His season numbers have tanked in the last couple of weeks, and with his complete lack of power, this is the sort of thing Lin needs to do to keep pitchers from just pounding the strike zone against him.
