Red Sox minor lines: Xander Bogaerts finds the range (again)

Xander Bogaerts leads the charge on a night of big offense in Boston's farm system.

Pawtucket W 5-3

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-5, 2B, 2 K
Brock Holt: 1-4, BB, SB
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, 2B, BB, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-4, K, SB, E
Xander Bogaerts: 1-3, HR, BB, K

Rubby De La Rosa: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

It feels almost like it's been a rough month for Xander in July. It's been more than two weeks since his last multi-hit game, after all. But even in those two weeks he's hitting .222/.349/.556, and on the month as a whole .277/.397/.508. If Xander has had a problem post-promotion, it's the .263 BABIP more than anything else.

Portland W 3-1

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 1-4, SB
Michael Almanzar: 0-3, K
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 2B, 3B

Anthony Ranaudo: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 1 K
Noe Ramirez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

The good news is that the worn-down duo of Rubby De La Rosa and Anthony Ranaudo didn't give up a bunch of earned runs last night. The bad news is that these performances aren't exactly awe-inspiring. But right now I'd say we're mostly looking ahead to next year on these two, barring trades, which means we should probably take what we can get, on the whole.

Salem W 13-9

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 1-2, 2B, 3 BB, K
Deven Marrero: 3-6, 2B, K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2B
Blake Swihart: 3-5, 2 2B
Mookie Betts: 0-5, K, E

A much-needed boost to dismal July performances from Blake Swihart and Deven Marrero. Hopefully a catalyst for a longer hot streak.

Lowell L 2-3

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, 3 K, SB
Manuel Margot: 0-2, 2 K
Forrestt Allday: 1-3, 3B, BB, 2 K, SB

Corey Littrell: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

Can the Red Sox' system get together as a group and agree to just...y'know...not walk everyone, maybe?
