Red Sox Minor Lines: Triston Casas hits another homer

New, 11 comments

Pawtucket L 3-4

Bryce Brentz, PH: 0-1, 1 K

Chad De La Guerra, SS: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K

Steve Pearce, 1B: 0-4, 3 K

Sam Travis, LF/1B 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

Rusney Castillo, CF: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 SB, 1 E

Josh Ockimey, DH: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 K

Chris Owings, 2B: 0-4, 2 K

Kyle Hart: 6 IP, 11 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K (85 pitches)

Trevor Kelley: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (7 pitches)

Pawtucket struggled to get much of anything going on Friday night, scoring three on a three-run shot from Travis in the third inning but not getting anything else. They managed only four hits throughout the night while Indianapolis put up 14 knocks, so it’s impressive it was only a one-run game to begin with. Still, there are a lot of cold bats in the PawSox lineup right now, with Ockimey perhaps being the most high-profile.

Portland L 8-11 (F/10)

Jarren Duran, CF: 1-5, 1 R, 1 K

C.J. Chatham, SS: 3-5, 2 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 E

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 0-4, 1 R, 2 K

Joey Curletta, 1B: 2-5, 1 HR, 2 R, 1 RBI

Tate Matheny, RF: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 CS

Brett Netzer, DH: 2-3, 1 BB, 2 RBI, 1 K

Durbin Feltman: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K (29 pitches)

This was a strange game, and not just because the Sea Dogs were playing at the Whoopie Pies for the night. There were twelve runs combined scored between the two sides in the third inning and by the end of the fourth Portland had an 8-7 lead. They wouldn’t be able to score after that, though, and the bullpen couldn’t hold Reading. That includes Feltman, of course, who had been looking a lot better of late but struggled with control in the eighth and allowed the tying run to score. His inconsistent command has been one of the biggest disappointments on the farm this year.

Salem G1 L 7-8

Victor Acosta, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 0-3, 1 RBI, 1 K

Marcus Wilson, CF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K, 1 CS

Garrett Benge, 3B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Charlie Madden, C: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Salem G2 W 4-3

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 E

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 0-3, 2 K

Marcus Wilson, CF: 2-2, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 SB

Nick Lovullo, 3B: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Jhonathan Diaz: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 8 K (99 pitches)

Zach Schellenger: 1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 2 K (32 pitches)

Speaking of disappointing relief options, Schellenger was an under-the-radar possibility to contribute in the majors this year but the righty has not been able to get going and almost blew this game with more control issues. On a more positive note, it was a big doubleheader for Wilson who continues to rake in High-A. His OPS is now up to .996 since getting to Salem.

Greenville W 5-0

Cole Brannen, CF: 1-4, 1 K

Everlouis Lozada, 2B: 2-5, 2 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Kole Cottam, C: 2-4, 1 2B, 2 RBI

Jordan Wren, LF: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Triston Casas, 1B: 2-5, 1 R, 1 R, 2 RBI

Tyler Dearden, DH: 1-4, 2 K

Brandon Howlett, 3B; 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Chris Machamer: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K (88 pitches)

Casas has picked up right where he did before the All-Star break, launching his 11th homer of the year. The 2018 first round pick is starting to gain some national spotlight, and a strong performance down the stretch will make him a consensus top-100 name if he’s not already there. Meanwhile, Cottam has quietly started to turn it on of late and is up to a .783 OPS on the year a a catcher. That’ll do.

Lowell PPD

DSL 1 L 7-8

Eduardo Lopez, CF: 1-4, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 R

Eduardo Vaughan, LF: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI

Carlos Sanchez, 1B: 2-5, 1 R, 2 K

Erick Flores, C: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K

DSL 2 L 1-8

Elio Prado, LF: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 CS

Player of the Day: This one goes to Marcus Wilson, who as I said has been raking since his demotion to Salem. The return in the Blake Swihart trade is blocked at center field in Portland by Duran, but he should get another chance at Double-A at some point soon and play in the corner spots.
