Red Sox minor lines: The pitching falls apart

New, comment

The pitching on the farm has greatly improved in recent weeks. On Wednesday, though, it was back to being a complete mess.

Pawtucket L 4-9

Rusney Castillo: 0-2, BB, K
Chris Young: 1-3
Christian Vazquez: 0-4, K
Brennan Boesch: 1-4, 2 K

Justin Haley: 2 IP, 8 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 2 HR
Kyle Martin: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Yikes, Justin Haley! It's impressive that he's still got an ERA under 4.00, but how do you go from 21 scoreless to, well, this?

And when do we get Chris Young back in Boston? He's been down there for a week now. Can't be too much longer unless the Red Sox are really worried about finding playing time for him in the outfield.

Portland Game 1 W 4-3 (In 7)

Mauricio Dubon: 1-3

Brandon Workman: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 0 K

Portland Game 2 L 4-7 (In 7)

Mauricio Dubon: 2-3, HR

Yikes part two! Brandon Workman had been struggling even against Low-A competition, so I suppose it's no surprise that his re-introduction to Double-A hitters turned ugly in a hurry. At least Mauricio Dubon is still mashing in Moncada's absence. That's three homers since July 31st now after not hitting any in the first four months of the season.

Salem W 5-1

Joseph Monge: 1-4, 2 K, CS
Rafael Devers: 0-3, BB, K, E
Nick Longhi: 1-4

Greenville L 2-9 (In 14)

Luis Alexander Basabe: 2-5, 3B, BB, K, SB
Josh Ockimey: 0-5, BB, 2 K
Michael Chavis: 1-6, 2B, K
Kyri Washington: 0-5, BB, 2 K
Austin Rei: 0-5, 4 K

Stephen Nogosek: 1 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, K, E

Yikes the third! In his last 16 innings leading up to this one, Nogosek had allowed all of two runs, striking out 25 and walking six. Whatever curse afflicted the minor league pitching yesterday, we can only hope it's run its course now.

Lowell L 0-3

Matt McLean: 0-4, K
C.J. Chatham: 0-4
Ryan Scott: 1-4, K, CS
Bobby Dalbec: 1-3, 2B
Yoan Aybar: 0-3, K

Michael Shawaryn: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 K

And we will take this Shawaryn performance as...well, I guess it's better than the four runs he allowed last time out. And when everyone else is giving up a half dozen runs in a couple innings of work, I guess one can look past the walks for now.
