Red Sox minor lines: Jackie Bradley Jr. rides again

New, comments

Jackie Bradley Jr. is headed back to the major leagues. How was his last night in Pawtucket?

Jim Rogash

Pawtucket L 2-7

Box Score

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

It's not the most glamorous of lines to depart on, but it's solidly Bradley. The question now is whether he'll be able to carry any of this production over to the majors. Hopefully we're not in for a replay of April.

Portland L 3-6 (In 11)

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-5, K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, BB, SB
Travis Shaw: 0-5, K
Christian Vazquez: 0-3, 2 BB, K

Matt Barnes: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
Keith Couch: 2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

Barnes was strong right up until those last few outs, giving up a pair of runs to bring down his full game considerably. That kind of sums up his year so far. Always so close to clearing that hill.

Salem W 5-4

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 1-4, 2 K
Henry Ramos: 1-4, HR
Garin Cecchini: 1-4
Keury De La Cruz: 0-4, 2 K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, K, SB, E
Blake Swihart: 3-4, 2B, SB, E

It's been a two steps back, three steps forward sort of season for Blake Swihart. The good news is that results in a positive trend on the whole, and this may well be the signal of another set of forward steps.

Greenville L 3-8

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 1-5, 2B, K
Cody Koback: 1-4

Cody Kukuk: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

Just in case you haven't been paying attention to actual game results this year, the Drive are 14-37. To put that into context, the Astros are 15-37.
