Red Sox minor lines: Implosions on the mound

Two Red Sox pitchers who have typically impressed did anything but Tuesday night, as Anthony Ranaudo and Mike Augliera were thrashed in the minors.


Pawtucket L 1-5

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-3, 2 BB
Will Middlebrooks: 1-2, BB, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-4, 2 K
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, K
Brock Holt: 1-4, K

Will Middlebrooks is back in action. The question is: what will the Red Sox do when he gets back to Boston if Iglesias is still hitting .400?

Portland L 7-8 (In 12)

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 2-4, 2B, 2 BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 2-6, 2B, K, E
Travis Shaw: 1-5, BB, K
Christian Vazquez: 0-6, K
Kolbrin Vitek: 2-6, K

Anthony Ranaudo: 4.2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 4 BB, 5 K

A truly awful night from Anthony Ranaudo has left his ERA inflated all the way up to 1.97. That's how you take a punch.

Salem L 5-12

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 0-5, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 1-4, K, E
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4
Brandon Jacobs: 2-4, 2B
Blake Swihart: 2-3, 2B, HR, BB, K, E
David Renfroe: 1-3

Mike Augliera: 0.1 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

Blake Swihart finally adds a homer to his intriguing 2013 resume. But of course it's not nearly enough to overcome a start like that from Mike Augliera. It's a significant change of pace for the fifth-round pick, who had actually been performing quite well to this point.

Greenville W 6-2

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 2-5, 2B
Cody Koback: 3-4, 2 2B

Cody Kukuk: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 8 K
