Red Sox minor lines: Yoan Moncada breaks out

After a couple slow games to start his career, Moncada picked up three hits in his third.

Pawtucket L 1-2 (In 12)

Bryce Brentz: 2-5, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 2-4
Deven Marrero: 0-5, K
Garin Cecchini: 0-3, BB, K

Henry Owens: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 5 K

After his best game of the season, Henry Owens goes right back to walking batters in his next start. He's keeping runs off the board by-and-large, but this just isn't going to work long-term. Not at all.

Portland L 1-2

Carlos Asuaje: 0-3, BB
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4

Salem L 2-7

Sam Travis: 0-3, BB
Wendell Rijo: 1-4, 2B, K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 6 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 2 HR

Yike, Teddy. Stankiewicz had only offered up one homer in 39 innings headed into this game, so this looks like a bit of a blip on the radar at least in that area. But it doesn't seem like he brought his best stuff--or really anything close to it--to this one.

Greenville W 4-3

Nick Longhi: 0-4
Yoan Moncada: 3-4, K
Javier Guerra: 1-3, 2 K
Michael Chavis: 1-4, 3 K

And on the third day, Moncada answered the hype, at least somewhat. The first hit came on the infield, but it seems to have gotten him going, and even if it were a 2-for-4 day, that'd be nice coming off a hit in the last at bat of his second game.

Less exciting: Michael Chavis, who now has multiple strikeouts in eight of his last ten games, including four hat tricks. He just can't make contact, and doesn't seem to be improving yet.
