Red Sox minor lines: Matt Barnes in need of correction

New, 12 comments

Matt Barnes has allowed a fair few runs this year. But so did Henry Owens last year, and look how that's turned out.

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Pawtucket L 8-12

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 1-5, K, E
Will Middlebrooks: 1-5, HR, 2 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 3-4, CS

Keith Couch: 1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Alas, not everyone can debut like Ranaudo and Owens. But on the bright side, Keith Couch is not nearly so important a piece of the puzzle as either of those two.

Portland L 2-8

Box Score

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

Matt Barnes: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR
Noe Ramirez: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 B, 2 K, 2 HR

Matt Barnes had a streak of four games with one earned run or less. Ironically, it's his best game peripherally-speaking in the past month which snaps that streak. He could definitely be in line for a Henry Owens-like correction year in 2014.

Salem L 0-3 (In 5)

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 0-3
Deven Marrero: 0-2
Keury De La Cruz: 0-2
Blake Swihart: 0-2
Mookie Betts: 1-2
Cody Koback: 0-1

Talk about a BABIP game. Three hits in those five innings, but zero strikeouts for Wilmington's starter Santiago.

Greenville L 2-5

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 2-4
Jose Vinicio: 0-4, K
Kendrick Perkins: 0-3, 2 K

Brian Johnson: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Brian Johnson's ERA is 3.05. When did that happen?

Lowell W 4-3

Forrestt Allday: 1-2, 3 BB
Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-5, 2B, 2 K, E
