Red Sox minor lines: The second-half tear continues for Yoan Moncada

There's been no stopping Boston's top prospect since the All-Star break.

Pawtucket W 2-0

Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB, E, POCS
Allen Craig: 0-2, BB
Marco Hernandez: 0-3, K
Garin Cecchini: 0-2, BB

Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Pawtucket W 4-3 (In 10)

Deven Marrero: 2-4, BB, K
Allen Craig: 2-5, HR, K
Garin Cecchini: 0-5, K

Pat Light: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

There you have it! Clear proof that Allen Craig can, indeed, still hit a home run. What a time to be alive!

Portland L 0-3

Manuel Margot: 0-4
Sam Travis: 2-3, BB
Carlos Asuaje: 0-3, BB, K

Portland W 7-3

Manuel Margot: 1-5, 2B
Sam Travis: 2-3, 3B, BB, K

When the year started there was only a vague hope that the Red Sox might have some future first base answer in Sam Travis. Now Shaw is going nuts in the majors and Travis more or less looks like he should be at Triple-A after just one year in the system. Hopefully between the two the Sox find at least one real long-term solution.

Salem L 2-4

Trey Ball: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

Salem L 4-8

Teddy Stankiewicz: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 2 K

What on earth, Stankiewicz? That's the first time he's allowed even as many as four walks in a game this season.

Greenville L 2-3

Yoan Moncada: 1-3, BB, K
Rafael Devers: 1-4, 2B
Andrew Benintendi: 0-4
Nick Longhi: 1-4, K
Javier Guerra: 1-4, 2B

Greenville W 7-0

Yoan Moncada: 1-3, HR, 2 BB, 2 K
Michael Chavis: 2-4, 2 2B, K
Rafael Devers: 1-3, BB, K, E
Andrew Benintendi: 1-3, BB, K, SB
Nick Longhi: 0-4

While Yoan Moncada's eight homers would already have him on pace for about 18 homers in a full season, seven of his eight have come in the second half. If he kept up that pace over the course of a full season, he'd wind up with about 25.

Lowell W 5-2

Victor Acosta: 1-4, K
Josh Ockimey: 0-4, 2 K
Tucker Tubbs: 2-4
Mitchell Gunsolus: 2-3, 2B, K
Tate Matheny: 0-3
Austin Rei: 0-3

Lowell W 8-4

Victor Acosta: 1-3, K, E
Josh Ockimey: 1-2, HR, 2 BB, K, E
Mitchell Gunsolus: 1-3, BB, K
Tate Matheny: 1-4, 2 K

One more good game today will have Josh Ockimey's OPS up over .800. Not bad for a 19-year-old facing mostly college-level competition. Throw him into that sudden bounty of 1B talent, albeit on the low end given how far away he is.

GCL Red Sox W 2-0

Yoan Aybar: 1-4, 2 K, SB

GCL Red Sox W 3-2

Logan Allen: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

When's the last time the GCL had anything as exciting as Logan Allen and Anderson Espinoza's "dueling" zeroes week in and week out? They've now thrown 60 innings between the two of them, allowing five earned runs, striking out 64 batters to just 10 walks against.
