Red Sox minor lines: Allen Webster bounces back, Anthony Ranaudo rolls on

Allen Webster found his control, while Anthony Ranaudo had the best bad night you'll ever seen.


Pawtucket W 4-3

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 2-4, 2B, BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 2-4, BB, 2 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, BB, 2 SB
Brock Holt: 1-3, SB

Allen Webster: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

After walking nine in his last two games, those two free passes are a good sign from Webster.

Portland W 10-9

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-5
Travis Shaw: 0-2, 3 BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 2-5, 3B, HR
Christian Vazquez: 0-4, BB, K

Anthony Ranaudo: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Keith Couch: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Those were 4.2 laborious innings for Ranaudo, who need nearly 100 pitches. Actually, I think it's worth noting that, ridiculously enough, this is a bad game by Ranaudo's standards this year. It saw his ERA, BB/9 and H/9 all tick up, and his K/9 tick down. That's pretty crazy.

Salem W 3-2

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 3-5, 2B, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 1-5, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 1-2, BB
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2B, K
David Renfroe: 1-4, K
Blake Swihart: 0-3, BB, K
Henry Ramos: 0-4, K

The best argument for Garin Cecchini's promotion at this point is probably all the walks. If pitchers aren't throwing him strikes (because, y'know, the OPS that leads the league by 200 points), and he's shown his ability to take those pitches, what's being gained by him proving he can do that time after time? We'll see, but a promotion really does seem in order.

Greenville W 12-2

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 2-4, 2B, HR, BB, 2 K
Cody Koback: 2-6
Jose Vinicio: 3-5, 2 2B

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K

Oh my God, this is...this is a fully positive game from Greenville. I don't...I don't understand?
