Red Sox Minor Lines 6/5: Move Over Britton, It's Balcom-Miller's Time

Pawtucket L 4-5

Box Score

Che-Hsuan Lin: 0-4, BB, 2 K, CS
Marco Scutaro: 1-3, BB
Darnell McDonald: 0-2, 2 BB, SB
Lars Anderson: 1-5, 2B, K
Mike McKenry: 1-4, 2 K
Jose Iglesias: 1-3, BB
-Actually looked a bit patient today. My biggest issue was how much he expanded the strike zone by with two strikes.

Jason Rice: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
Michael Bowden: 0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Sean Coyle is just plain bad after the jump. June hasn't been kind to him so far.

Portland W 12-4

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, 2B, 2 BB, K, 2 SB
-OBP is still high, but he needs to not strike out once per every three at bats.
Alex Hassan: 2-5, HR, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-5, 2B, BB, 2 K
Will Middlebrooks: 3-5, K
Tim Federowicz: 3-4, 2B, HR, BB, K
-First homer since swatting three in April.

Chris Balcom-Miller: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR
-I gotta say I'm surprised to see this many strikeouts quite so soon in Double-A. Also worth noting: seven groundouts, two balls in the air all game (both for hits)

Salem L 3-6

My but this team is boring right now.

Box Score

Kolbrin Vitek: 3-4, 2B
-If Vitek is streaky, then hopefully this is the beginning of another positive one.

Drake Britton: 4 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
-Well, at least he only walked one guy. Wouldn't be surprised to see him join Stolmy on the DL.
Kendal Volz: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K


Greenville L 1-3

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-4, 3 K

Henry Ramos: 0-4
David Renfroe: 2-3, 2B, BB

Manny Rivera: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
-5 GO: 5 AO, second straight game without a homer.
