Red Sox minor lines: A rare day for Trey Ball

Trey Ball pitched, but he didn't give up runs. A rare positive sign from Boston's first-round project arm.

Pawtucket L 3-5

Mike Carp: 0-3, K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-3, 3B, K
Travis Shaw: 2-4
Garin Cecchini: 2-4, K
Christian Vazquez: 1-4
Alex Hassan: 1-4, K

Rubby De La Rosa: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Alex Wilson: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

It's an ugly return to Pawtucket for Rubby De La Rosa, but it seems like there might have been more to the story than just bad pitching.

Portland W 5-4

Deven Marrero: 0-5, K
Blake Swihart: 2-4, BB, K
Sean Coyle: 0-3, BB, 2 K

Henry Owens: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

It speaks volumes that this might well be considered a disappointing outing from Henry Owens. Not so much as his last game, to be sure, but it's become a shock when he's not completely dominant.

Greenville L 2-5

Forrestt Allday: 3-5
Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-5
Wendell Rijo: 1-3, BB, K
Manuel Margot: 1-3

Trey Ball: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Trey Ball has had another outing like this earlier this season. He proceeded to allow five runs in his next game. Putting together two successful outings in a row would be a big deal.

Lowell W 11-5

Danny Mars: 2-5, 2B, K
Sam Travis: 2-4, BB
Nick Longhi: 2-4, BB, K, E
Cole Sturgeon: 2-4, 3B, K

Quite a bit of hitting going on in Lowell. Nick Longhi in particular has picked up quite a bit over the last few games, collecting multiple hits in four of his last five. No matter how the four aforementioned players are doing in other categories, all are hitting nearly .300 to start their seasons.

GCL Red Sox W 3-0

Josh Ockimey: 0-2, 2 BB
Victor Acosta: 2-3, 2B, BB
Trenton Kemp: 0-4

DSL Red Sox W 8-2

Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-2, SB
Rafael Devers: 1-2, BB, SB
