New, comments

Pawtucket W 6-5

Sometimes you just gotta go ahead and score five in the ninth.

Josh Reddick: 3-5, 2B, HR
-Has doubled his home run total from April-July
Eric Patterson: 2-5, 2B, 2 K, 2 SB
Jarrod Saltalamacchia: 2-5, 2 2B

How's Rizzo gonna keep his lead if he keeps walking? For shame...Uh...After the jump.

Greenville Game 1 W 5-3 (In 7)

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-3, 2B, SB, E
Derrik Gibson: 1-2, SB
Michael Almanzar: 2-2, BB
Kolbrin Vitek: 1-3, 2B
Reymond Fuentes: 0-2, BB, 2 SB, POCS
-Between a .329/.413/.457 August (backed by a 10:13 BB:K) and his 40 steals in 44 attempts, Fuentes is starting to round more into what the Sox perhaps expected. Good thing, too. His July was painful.
Shannon Wilkerson: 0-2

Manny Rivera: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
-A 5.90 ERA in his last 10 starts despite an awesome 41:3 K:BB ratio. The seven homers are likely culprits, though he's actually keeping the ball on the ground a lot better in the period than he had the rest of the season.



Greenville Game 2 L 2-4 (In 7)

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-2, 2 BB
Derrik Gibson: 1-3, BB
Michael Almanzar: 1-2, SB
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-2, BB
Reymond Fuentes: 1-3
Shannon Wilkerson: 1-3

Drake Britton: 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
-Has pitched five innings every other game for the last few weeks, so they're seemingly getting more comfortable with letting him work his arm. Or he could just be ridiculously eficient?



Lowell W 7-1

Box Score

Bryce Brentz: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K, SB
Miles Head: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, BB
David Renfroe: 0-3, BB, 2 K



GCL Red Sox W 9-3

Box Score

Jose Vinicio: 1-5
Oscar Perez: 1-4, BB, K, 2 PO
