Red Sox minor lines: Implosions on the mound

New, comments

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

USA TODAY Sports

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
