Red Sox minor lines: Big nights in Pawtucket

Garin Cecchini and Deven Marrero are finally showing signs of life, while Jackie Bradley Jr. just keeps on rolling through Triple-A.

Pawtucket W 7-3

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 2-5, 2 2B, K
Allen Craig: 2-5, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 1-3, 2 BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 0-5, 3 K
Deven Marrero: 3-4, HR, BB
Garin Cecchini: 2-5, HR, 2 K

Keith Couch: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Well, if his second homer of the year on Saturday was a brief reprieve in a bad season, two games in a row is a legitimate sign of life for Garin Cecchini. And while Deven Marrero's season hasn't been as consistently awful as Cecchini's, he certainly needed a boost as well after a dismal May wiped away an encouraging April.

Portland L 0-5

Carlos Asuaje: 0-4, K

Pat Light: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

That's just the second run Pat Light has allowed since transitioning to a more traditional relief role (he pitched mainly 2-to-3 inning outings at the beginning of the season). So far he's enjoyed an extremely positive transition to the bullpen, which is good, because the whole starting thing was really not working out at all.

Salem W 6-5

Manuel Margot: 2-4, 3B
Sam Travis: 2-4
Wendell Rijo: 2-4

Sam Travis is on quite the hot streak these past couple weeks. In the past 10 games, he's gone 20-for-44 with four doubles, a walk, and a homer, boosting his OPS by about 80 points. Still work to do, but he's back on track.

Greenville L 1-3

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

Michael Kopech: 3.1 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Not a great week for well-regarded young pitching prospects in Boston's system. Maybe Eduardo Rodriguez took all the mojo with him to the majors?

I'll take that trade, I guess.
