Travis Shaw: 0-0, 4 BB

Keith Couch: 2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 1 K

Xander Bogaerts is warming up, thank goodness. He has six hits in his last 12 at bats. Keith Couch is headed in the opposite direction, unfortunately, as his move to the bullpen continues to disagree with him.

Salem W 8-1

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 1-5, K
Garin Cecchini: 2-3, 2B, HR, 2 BB, K, SB
Brandon Jacobs: 1-4, 2B, BB, K, SB, A
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2B, BB, 3 K, SB
Blake Swihart: 2-5, SB

Just when it looked like Garin Cecchini was slowing down, he goes off with one of the biggest games we've seen from any prospect this season. Blake Swihart, meanwhile, has a five game hitting streak as he tries to get the bat going post-promotion.

Greenville L 2-13

Box Score

Frank Montas: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 8 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Greenville isn't exactly the most interesting team in the organization, but this is just straight depressing. After a strong first outing, Montas has really struggled to record outs. The 20-year-old might just not have been ready for the jump to full season ball?
