Red Sox minor lines: The tear continues for Jackie Bradley Jr.

He can't get a few straight starts in the majors, but Jackie Bradley Jr. continues to dominate the minors.

Pawtucket W 13-4

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-5, 2 HR, BB
Rusney Castillo: 0-6, K
Allen Craig: 1-5, BB
Garin Cecchini: 0-4, BB, 4 K

Joe Kelly: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HR
Pat Light: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Pawtucket W 5-1

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-5, CS
Daniel Nava: 0-5, 2 K
Rusney Castillo: 2-4
Marco Hernandez: 1-4, K

Henry Owens: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K
Matt Barnes: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

We've got the Henry Owens and Jackie Bradley Jr. of old playing in Pawtucket these days! One just hopes that, should the Red Sox fold as the deadline nears, they get Bradley back into the majors and in the everyday lineup with the last couple months remaining to them. Nothing to lose, after all. Playing time for lame duck outfielders like Alejandro De Aza and Shane Victorino (if they're even with the team) is not much of a consideration.

Portland L 1-2

Manuel Margot: 1-3, BB, SB
Carlos Asuaje: 1-3, BB
Sam Travis: 1-3, 2B, BB, K, POCS

Portland L 4-5 (In 11)

Manuel Margot: 2-5, K, SB, CS
Carlos Asuaje: 3-4, 2B, BB
Blake Swihart: 1-4, 2 K
Sam Travis: 2-5, HR, K

That's actually Margot's first multi-hit game since July 2nd. That despite hitting safely in all but one game since then. It's led to a strange sort of July for the young outfielder which has seen his OBP spike and his SLG tank. Not an unacceptable tradeoff, exactly, just...strange.

Salem L 1-4

Wendell Rijo: 1-4, K, CS

Salem W 6-4

Wendell Rijo: 1-2, 2 BB, POCS

Trey Ball: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 6 BB, 2 K

There's Trey Ball's 2015 season in a nutshell. Earned run totals that make you think maybe things are taking a turn for the better, peripherals that show nothing much has changed.

Greenville W 14-8

Yoan Moncada: 1-4, BB, K, 2 SB, CS, E
Michael Chavis: 0-5, 2 K
Rafael Devers: 1-4, K, SB
Nick Longhi: 0-4, 2 K
Javier Guerra: 2-3, 2 BB, E

Greenville L 4-6 (In 10)

Michael Chavis: 1-5, 2 K, SB
Rafael Devers: 2-5, HR, 2 K
Javier Guerra: 2-4, BB, E

Three walks in two games for Javier Guerra is pretty far from the norm, but a welcome sight for a player whose season could stand to look a little more...sustainable.

Also, that's Moncada's first time caught stealing. Took 18 tries, but they finally got him.

Lowell L 3-4

Andrew Benintendi: 2-5, 3B, K
Tate Matheny: 1-5, 3 K
Austin Rei: 0-4, BB
Mitchell Gunsolus: 2-3, K
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, BB, K

Lowell L 1-3

Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-4, K
Victor Acosta: 0-4
Andrew Benintendi: 1-2, 2 BB
Tucker Tubbs: 1-2
Mitchell Gunsolus: 0-2, K
Austin Rei: 0-2, BB, K

Andrew Benintendi has to be happy to notch a couple solid games after what's been a dry spell in terms of hits. But even after an 0-for-14 stretch, his OBP sits at exactly .400. That's what drawing six walks in that stretch will do for ya.

GCL Red Sox W 7-2

Trent Kemp: 0-3, BB, K
Yoan Aybar: 0-4, K
Jagger Rusconi: 0-2, K
