Red Sox minor lines: A late lunge for Longhi

Greenville hasn't been as explosive as usual of late, but Nick Longhi is keeping up his end of the bargain.

Pawtucket W 6-5

Deven Marrero: 2-4, BB, K, CS
Marco Hernandez: 1-4, BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-4

Deven Marrero dug himself quite the hole this season, but over the past three weeks he's at least been better, taking his line from .237/.297/.336 up to .253/.314/.343. Not good, but not so bad as it's been.

Portland W 4-3 (In 10)

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

Well, Sam Travis was apparently tired of making all those outs in his previous game. It's easy to forget, but his Portland line is actually dragged down some by a rough start post-promotion. Since the All-Star Break, he's hitting a cool .304/.382/.458

Salem W 7-2

Kevin McAvoy: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

Greenville L 2-6

Yoan Moncada: 0-5, 2 K
Michael Chavis: 1-5, K
Rafael Devers: 0-3, 2 K
Andrew Benintendi: 1-3, 2B, POCS
Nick Longhi: 3-4, 2B, E
Javier Guerra: 0-4, 3 K

For as exciting a team as they were all year, it's been a bit of a crawl to the finish line for the Drive as a whole. These past two weeks he's gone 15-for-43 with five doubles, four walks, and a homer. That's .348/.404/.535 in triple slash terms.

Lowell W 10-7

Victor Acosta: 2-4, 2B, BB, K, SB
Josh Ockimey: 1-5, 2 K
Kyri Washington: 2-4, 2B, BB, K
Tucker Tubbs: 0-4, BB
Tate Matheny: 2-4

The Washington renaissance continues. Add him to the list of close watches in 2016.

GCL Red Sox W 1-0 (In 7)

Yoan Aybar: 0-3

Well, that's a slightly underwhelming way to win a championship, but the Sox have indeed taken down the GCL. Too bad Logan Allen and/or Anderson Espinoza couldn't take the mound for the clincher.
