Josh Reddick: 1-4, K

Portland W 9-8

Box Score

Che-Hsuan Lin: 1-5, K, A
Jose Iglesias: 0-4, K
Anthony Rizzo: 3-4, 2 HR, K
-That's 23 home runs on the year for Rizzo, including 18 in Portland, 7 in August, and 5 in the last 10 games--a stretch where he is batting .378/.467/.811 with a 7:10 BB:K. You know how the Sox tend to lack those prospects putting up ridiculous numbers because they push them promotion-wise and age-wise? Well, Rizzo turned 21 less than two weeks ago and missed a year to Lymphoma. And he's one of the best defensive first basemen in the minors.
Luis Exposito: 1-3, HR, BB
Nate Spears: 1-3, HR, BB
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-4, HR

Weiland: 4 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, PO

Bryce Brentz: 0-5, K
Miles Head: 1-4
Brandon Jacobs: 1-5, 2 K, E

Keith Couch: 1 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
