Red Sox Minor Lines 4/18: Happy Matt Barnes, Sad Drake Britton

Pawtucket W 6-1 (In 11)

Box Score

Just one of your typical 5-run eleventh innings.

Che-Hsuan Lin: 3-5, 2B, BB, K, SB, A
Ryan Lavarnway: 3-6
Will Middlebrooks: 3-4, HR, BB
-Even WMB's biggest fan probably didn't see this one coming. Hitting .365 with four homers and finally has a couple walks in the last few games. An unreal start.
Alex Hassan: 0-4, BB, 2 K

Aaron Cook: 8 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 0 K
-13:5 GO:AO. We're just going to start doing "Cook start" and "Non-Cook start"

Bogaerts keeps rolling along after the jump.

Portland W 2-1

Box Score

Kolbrin Vitek: 0-3, BB, 2 K, E
Oscar Tejeda: 1-4, 2B, 2 K
Juan Carlos Linares: 0-3, BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, 2 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3

Chris Hernandez: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
-Before the season, I thought Hernandez might be a good pick to burn out at Portland. Instead, he's sporting a 1.72 ERA through 15 innings of work, and has 11 strikeouts to two walks in his last couple of outings.

Salem L 9-11

Box Score

Yeah, it's a Drake Britton game...

Jackie Bradley: 2-4, 2 BB, SB, E
Sean Coyle: 2-5, BB, K
Brandon Jacobs: 0-5, BB, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 2-6, 2B, 2 K
Xander Bogaerts: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB, SB
Christian Vazquez: 2-3, BB

Rich Hill: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Drake Britton: 4 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
-Take him back to the drawing board. He's too good to be this bad.

Greenville W 4-2

Box Score

Blake Swihart: 2-4, 2B, BB, K
Garin Cecchini: 1-1, 3 BB, SB
Henry Ramos: 1-3, K, CS
David Renfroe: 1-4, HR
-Hit 8 homers in ten times as many at bats last year. Breakout year?

Matt Barnes: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K
-Yeah...something tells me he's a bit much for this level. He's essentially getting spring training work in here, developing what needs developing before making the jump.
