Red Sox minor lines: Benintendi sets a record, Rodriguez' rehab continues

In the upper levels, Eduardo Rodriguez managed to salvage a rough start to his second rehab start. In the lower levels, Andrew Benintendi was setting a high mark in Salem franchise history.

Pawtucket L 4-6 (In 10)

Deven Marrero: 1-5, 2B
Marco Hernandez: 1-4, BB, K
Blake Swihart: 1-4, BB
Sam Travis: 1-5, K
Rusney Castillo: 0-4

Eduardo Rodriguez: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
Anthony Varvaro: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Noe Ramirez: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 HR

Rodriguez managed to pull back what looked like it'd be a scary performance after all three of those runs came in the first. If the initial projections are to be believed, Rodriguez will be back after one more rehab start, so it's nice that he managed to avoid disaster with so few innings left between him and the majors.

Portland L 2-13

Wendell Rijo: 0-4, 3 K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 3.2 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 HR
Luis Ysla: 2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Williams Jerez: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Well, the good news for Stankiewicz is that, even with this outing, his ERA on the season is perfectly respectable at 3.58. Hooray for building up nest eggs!

Salem Game 1 W 15-3 (In 7)

Yoan Moncada: 2-3, HR, BB, SB
Mauricio Dubon: 3-5, SB, E
Andrew Benintendi: 2-4, BB, K
Nick Longhi: 2-3, 2B, 3B, 2 BB, K
Rafael Devers: 1-4, 3B

Salem Game 2 W 7-6 (In 7)

Yoan Moncada: 1-3, 2B, BB, K
Mauricio Dubon: 1-3, E
Andrew Benintendi: 2-4, 2B
Rafael Devers: 0-2, BB, K

Yankory Pimentel: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

22 runs in 14 innings seems about right. That's actually Yoan Moncada's first homer of the season, which seems particularly surprising when you consider that he's still rocking a .934 OPS on the year. Meanwhile Andrew Benintendi is setting hitting streak records with 21 games (beating out Salem's old record holder of Keury De La Cruz which doesn't make it less impressive at all nope nope nope) and Mauricio Dubon and Nick Longhi are just sneaking along at .330/.392/.362 and .304/.375/.413 respectively.

If this isn't an embarrassment of riches, I don't know what is.
