Red Sox minor lines: Rubby De La Rosa highlights day of pitching

The farm system put its best pitchers forward Thursday night as Rubby De La Rosa, Brandon Workman, Henry Owens, and Francellis Montas all took the mound.

J. Meric

Pawtucket L 4-6

Box Score

Jose Iglesias: 1-4, SB, CS, E
Bryce Brentz: 0-4, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-3, BB, E
Brock Holt: 2-4, 2B

Rubby De La Rosa: 4 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
Chris Hernandez: 5 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR

The unearned run came courtesy of Hazelbaker's error--a dropped fly ball with two outs in the fourth. The walks aren't what you want to see, however, marking a bit of a relapse in that department after a good run of control from Rubby.

Portland W 15-4

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB
Travis Shaw: 4-5, 2 2B, HR
Michael Almanzar: 3-5, 2B, HR
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-1

Brandon Workman: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR

Shaw has been struggling at the plate the last couple of weeks. Only time will tell if this is simply a blip on the radar, or a sign of turning over a new leaf.

Salem L 4-5

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 2-4, BB, 2 K, 3 SB
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, K
Brandon Jacobs: 2-4, K, SB, E
David Renfroe: 0-2, BB, K, POCS
Blake Swihart: 1-4, K
Henry Ramos: 1-4

Henry Owens: 5 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
Noe Ramirez: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Sean Coyle broke his 0-for-26 slump by reaching base three straight times to start the game. We'll perhaps ignore the fact that he then went 0-2 with a pair of strikeouts for the sake of everyone's sanity.

Greenville L 3-6

Box Score

Cody Koback: 1-3, 2 K, CS
Jose Vinicio: 0-2

Francellis Montas: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

It's not the best we've seen from Montas, but it's also far from the worst, which is important given how completely incapable of getting outs he seemed to be earlier in the year.
