New, 13 comments

And he is not alone...

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Pawtucket W 2-1

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-4, 2B, K, SB
Brock Holt: 0-3, 2 K
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-2
Bryce Brentz: 0-3, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-2, BB, 2 K

Allen Webster: 8 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 HR

Allen Webster is trying to show the Red Sox they can use him down the stretch, having had consistently good outings since late July. While I'm sure the Red Sox will be happy to have the option come September, I'm also pretty sure they'll want to avoid really relying on him if possible.

Portland W 10-5

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 2-4, 2B, BB
Christian Vazquez: 2-4, 2B, BB
Michael Almanzar: 2-5, 2B, K
Travis Shaw: 0-5, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 0-4

Noe Ramirez: 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

If Christian Vazquez' recipe for success is copying Garin Cecchini...well, yeah, that would probably get the job done.

Salem W 6-4 (In 12)

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-6, 3 K
Henry Ramos: 1-6, 2B, 3 K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-6, 4 K, SB
Blake Swihart: 1-6, K
Mookie Betts: 1-5, BB

Mike Augliera: 6.1 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

How often are Golden Sombreros complemented by X-for-X performances? Probably more often than we'd think, but Keury is still weird either way.

Greenville L 6-9

Box Score

Kendrick Perkins: 1-5, 3 K
Jose Vinicio: 0-4, K, SB

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

So, seriously, what's the hope for the 2014 Salem Red Sox? Forrestt Allday or Manuel Margot racing through Greenville, I guess? Because Mookie ain't sticking around for long if he even starts in Salem rather than Portland.

Lowell L 3-8 (In 11)

Box Score

Forrestt Allday: 3-5, 2 SB
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-5, BB, K, SB, E
Manuel Margot: 2-6, 2B, 2 K

Ty Buttrey: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 6 K

Forrestt Allday OBP watch: .435

GCL Red Sox W 7-0

Box Score

Jordon Austin: 1-5, 2B, 3 K

Pat Light: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Daniel Bard: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Alfredo Aceves: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Daniel Bard is back and...and...

Oh God...

This is...this demands revision. A new chapter is being added to The Aceves Mythos. He rises again, and his disciple rises with him.
