Pawtucket W 6-3
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-5, 2 K
Brock Holt: 2-5, 2B, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-4, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 2-4, 2B, 2 K, SB
Allen Webster: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
Rubby De La Rosa: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
Rubby wasn't exactly dominant coming out of the pen for the Sox, but it's clear this is what they're looking for from him in September. Hopefully some added familiarity will help make him a reliable option in the short-term.
Portland W 4-2
Garin Cecchini: 0-3, BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, 3B, 2 K
Christian Vazquez: 3-4
Noe Ramirez: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Christian Vazquez is extraordinarily close to maintaining a .290/.370/.400 line over the course of a full season.
Salem L 0-5
Sean Coyle: 0-3, BB, 3 K
Henry Ramos: 0-4, K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4
Blake Swihart: 0-3, K
Mookie Betts: 0-2, BB, CS
Henry Ramos has fallen right off the old cliff since the All-Star Break, making his hot streak look very much like just that--a hot streak, and nothing more.
Greenville L 2-6
Kendrick Perkins: 1-4, HR, K
Justin Haley: 5 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2 HR
A strange game indeed for Justin Haley, who has made an art form of keeping runs off the board despite mediocre peripherals. He's finally putting together a run of good peripherals, though--28 K : 5 BB in his last four games--and this is the reward. That's not positive reinforcement, Baseball Gods!
Lowell L 4-5 (In 10)
Forrestt Allday: 2-5
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-4, BB, K, 2 E
Manuel Margot: 2-5, HR, K, SB
Ty Buttrey: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Mike Adams: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Ty Buttrey, on the other hand, knows how to get away with this sort of thing: have the defense make three errors behind you!
GCL Red Sox W 2-1
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-1, K
Bryce Brentz: 1-3, 2B, K
Jordon Austin: 0-3, 2 K
Pat Light: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
The good news is Pat Light probably won't have time to return to the level which saw him allow 23 earned runs in 25 innings.
