Red Sox minor lines: Garin Cecchini heralds the end, Xander Bogaerts homers again

Garin Cecchini has gone 1-for-7 with two strikeouts. The end is nigh!


Pawtucket W 7-6

Box Score

Will Middlebrooks: 1-4
Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, HR

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-4, HR, K

Unfortunately,'s video of Xander's homer is actually Jeremy Hazelbaker's homer. But they did get around to putting up Xander's homer from two days ago, so let's go to that tape instead:

Xander Bogaerts does not seem to hit cheap homers. Ever.

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 0-3, K
Michael Almanzar: 0-3, K
Travis Shaw: 0-3, 3 K
Brandon Jacobs: 0-3, K
Kolbrin Vitek: 1-2

This might be the first time Garin Cecchini hasn't reached base in Double-A. Whether that's the case or not, going 1-for-7 with two strikeouts in a day is clearly a sign of the end times.

Salem Game 1 L 2-3

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 1-4
Deven Marrero: 1-2, 2 BB, E
Keury De La Cruz: 0-3, BB
Blake Swihart: 0-3, BB, K

Cody Koback: 1-3, BB
David Renfroe: 1-3, K, E

Henry Owens: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 4 K

After spending all of last year giving up tons of earned runs with excellent peripherals, this is the least Owens start of all time.

Salem Game 2 W 3-1 (In 7)

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 0-3, CS
Deven Marrero: 0-3, 2 K
Keury De La Cruz: 0-2, BB, K
Mookie Betts: 1-3, SB
Cody Koback: 0-2

Thus ends the Ramos hit streak.

Greenville L 1-3

Box Score

Jose Vinicio: 1-4, K, SB

Justin Haley: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 7 K

It's frankly amazing that Haley strikes out as many batters as he does given his...difficult relationship with the strike zone. If he and the zone can ever work that out, though...

Lowell W 1-0 (In 10)

Box Score

Manuel Margot: 2-4, BB, K, SB
Williams Jerez: 2-4, SB

GCL Red Sox Game 1 L 0-5 (In 7)

Box Score

Jon Denney: 1-3, 2B, K

This is the first game in which Jon Denney has not drawn a walk. He's gotten off to a nice start in Boston's system.

GCL Red Sox Game 2 W 7-1 (In 7)

Box Score

Jordon Austin: 0-3, 2 K

Jordon Austin not so much...
