Red Sox minor lines: Javier Guerra's power show continues

Javier Guerra just keeps on hitting homers.

Pawtucket L 0-4

Rusney Castillo: 1-4, 2B, K
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 0-3, BB
Blake Swihart: 0-3
Allen Craig: 1-3
Garin Cecchini: 0-3, K

Steven Wright: 7 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR

Portland L 0-3

Carlos Asuaje: 1-3, BB
Sam Travis: 0-4, K

Sam Travis' red-hot July has cooled off these last few days, but he's built up enough slack in the first week-and-a-half that his OPS on the month still sits over .800. Night and day with his immediate results post-promotion.

Salem L 2-6

Wendell Rijo: 0-3, BB

Ty Buttrey: 5.2 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

Ty Buttrey went nearly three months without allowing five earned runs in a start. Now he's done it twice in three games in July. A suddenly rocky road for the young righty, though he's still got a 3.26 ERA for now.

Greenville W 9-3

Yoan Moncada: 3-5, 2B, HR, SB
Michael Chavis: 0-5, 2 K
Javier Guerra: 2-4, 2 HR, BB
Nick Longhi: 4-5

Michael Kopech: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 3 K

70 games into the season, Javier Guerra just keeps hitting, and hitting for power. That's 11 homers now in just over 250 at bats from a 19-year-old shortstop.

Lowell W 6-5 (In 11)

Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-6, 2 K
Tate Matheny: 1-4, SB
Victor Acosta: 1-2
Tucker Tubbs: 1-3, 2 BB, K, SB
Mitchell Gunsolus: 2-5, K

Tucker Tubbs is in a strange place right now. .240 batting average, .375 OBP, .420 SLG. He's maybe a homer short of being Adam Dunn.
