Red Sox minor lines: A weekend of walks

Red Sox batters and pitchers alike are walking, walking, walking...

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports


Pawtucket L 0-1 (In 10)

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, K
Will Middlebrooks: 0-3, BB
Bryce Brentz: 1-3, 2 K
Xander Bogaerts: 0-3, BB, K

Brandon Workman: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

A nice bounce-back performance from Brandon Workman after a bit of an implosion in his last outing.

Portland L 5-7

Box Score

Christian Vazquez: 1-4, K
Garin Cecchini: 2-4, 2B, K
Michael Almanzar: 0-4, E
Travis Shaw: 1-3, HR, BB

Anthony Ranaudo: 7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

Ranaudo keeps runs off the board this time, but all-too-often of late the walks and strikeouts are very much the same.

Salem L 0-9

Box Score

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

Henry Owens: 2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 5 BB, 3 K

Owens seems to have been the last top pitching prospect in line for a meltdown. It feels as though every one in the system has experienced at least one in the past month.

Greenville W 8-4

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 2-4, 2B, BB, SB
Jose Vinicio: 2-4, BB, 3 SB

Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Lowell L 4-5

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-4, 3B, BB, 2 K
Manuel Margot: 0-4, BB, CS
Williams Jerez: 0-4, K


Pawtucket L 2-3 (In 10)

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-2, 3 BB
Will Middlebrooks: 1-4, K
Xander Bogaerts: 2-3, BB, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-4

There's the hits from Xander. Having drawn a walk in eight straight games is all well-and-good, but sometimes you need a good 2-for-3 night.

Portland L 4-9

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 3-4, 2B
Travis Shaw: 0-4
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-4

Matt Barnes: 0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Noe Ramirez: 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

There is no such thing for Garin Cecchini. He's hitting .412/.524/.588 now; there's just no stopping him.

Salem L 2-7

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 1-5, HR
Deven Marrero: 1-3, BB, SB, E
Keury De La Cruz: 0-3, BB
Brandon Jacobs: 1-4, K
Blake Swihart: 0-4, K
Cody Koback: 1-4, K

Marrero keeps hitting and hitting and hitting, and while he may not have volume today, he certainly picked up the impact with a long ball.

Greenville Game 1 L 0-3 (In 7)

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 1-2, BB, CS
Jose Vinicio: 0-3

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 0 K

The day Justin Haley doesn't walk the world there'll be a ticker-tape parade in Greenville.

Greenville Game 2 W 3-1 (In 7)

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 1-4, K
Jose Vinicio: 2-4, K

Lowell W 4-3

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, K, E
Manuel Margot: 1-3, K
Williams Jerez: 1-3

GCL Red Sox L 5-6 (In 8)

Box Score

Jordon Austin: 0-3, BB, 3 K
Jon Denney: 1-2, 2 BB

Three walks in Jon Denney's first two games. I'd say he's gotten nothing to hit, but he's also picked up a couple of singles, so...
