Red Sox minor lines: Big swings in Pawtucket

New, comments

Travis Shaw and Mookie Betts went nuts in Pawtucket. For one player, this is a welcome change of pace. For the other...more of the same.

Pawtucket W 16-5

Mookie Betts: 3-5, BB
Travis Shaw: 3-4, 2 2B, HR, BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-5
Alex Hassan: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB, K
Christian Vazquez: 2-5, K

Anthony Ranaudo: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Drake Britton: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Alex Wilson: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Travis Shaw needed that. His big night breaks up an 0-for-12 run that left him looking entirely unready for Triple-A.

Mookie Betts did not need that, but he'll take it. He's played 21 games in Pawtucket now, and has reached base in every last one of them.

Salem W 5-1

Corey Littrell: 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Greenville L 4-11

Forrestt Allday: 0-6, K
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-3, BB
Wendell Rijo: 1-4, K
Manuel Margot: 1-4, 3B

Teddy Stankiewicz: 5 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

Stankiewicz' season just feels...weird. Zeroes punctuated with games like this one. On the whole that's probably better than consistently being decent since consistency seems a lot easier to learn than the actual ability to pitch well enough to dominate a game. Of course, in all cases, we're talking about Single-A hitters here, which is not proof of all that much.

Lowell W 8-4

Danny Mars: 1-4, 3 K
Nick Longhi: 2-3, 2B, BB, K

DSL Red Sox W 2-1

Luis Alejandro Basabe: 2-4, K
Rafael Devers: 2-3, 2B, BB, K
Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-3, BB, 3 K

Rafael Devers' power show has slowed down, but they still can't keep him off the basepaths. Now he just needs to get his travel papers sorted out.
