Red Sox Minor Lines: Jarren Duran is going streaking

While some Pawtucket relievers are rounding into form.

Pawtucket L 2-4

Marco Hernandez, 2B: 2-4

Chris Owings, SS: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB

Rusney Castillo, RF: 0-4, 1 RBI, 1 K

Chad De La GUerra, 3B: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Tzu-Wei Lin, LF: 1-4

Tanner Houck: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K (16 pitches)

Ryan Brasier: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (14 pitches)

The PawSox couldn’t get the win on Thursday with the offense having a mostly quiet night, but there were a few positives to take away from this game. For one thing, it was a solid night out of the ‘pen for both Houck and Brasier. Both righties are guys the team thinks can and should help the big-league squad down the stretch. Houck now has a 2.57 ERA with Pawtucket with seven strikeouts and two walks in seven innings of work. Brasier, since being optioned, has a 1.80 ERA in five innings with six strikeouts and a walk. Offensively, De La Guerra hit a homer to bring his OPS up to .937. He’s somewhat quietly having a big year, and it was only a couple of seasons ago the team was fairly high on him and sent him to the AFL.

Portland W 4-3

Jarren Duran, CF: 2-5, 2 R, 1 SB

C.J. Chatham, 2B: 0-4, 1 K

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Joey Curletta, 1B: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Marcus Wilson, RF: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 K

Brett Netzer, DH: 2-4, 1 CS

Durbin Feltman: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB,1 K (25 pitches)

There’s not a whole lot to say about this game. Portland got a big three-run sixth that was the difference in the night as the bullpen held on from there. Offensively, Duran is looking more and more like himself every day. The outfielder now has an 11-game hit streak with seven of those games including multiple hits. He also has 16 stolen bases in 52 games with Portland. That’s a 50-steal pace over 162 games.

Salem G1 L 3-4

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 0-2

Keith Curcio, CF: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Joan Martinez: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 0 K (27 pitches)

Salem G2 L 2-6

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 E

Edgar Corcino, RF: 2-3, 1 2B, 2 RBI

There’s not really too much to say here after a tough doubleheader for Salem. The High-A club has been solid even after losing Duran and Bryan Mata, among others, but this just isn’t the most exciting roster. Martinez had been exciting in the first half of the year but he’s falling apart as the season goes on. He’s allowed at least one run in six of his last eight appearances.

Greenville SUSP

Lowell L 1-6

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 1-4

Cameron Cannon, SS: 1-4, 1 K

Jaxx Groshans, C: 0-4

Stephen Scott, 1B: 0-4

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 0-4, 1 R, 2 K, 1 E

Nick Decker, RF: 1-2, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 CS

The good news here is that Jimenez was indeed in the lineup. If you’ll recall, he had left the previous game in the third inning and there was no word on what the issue was. Apparently it was nothing serious. The bad news is, well, pretty much everything that happened on the field. It was an ugly and quiet one for the Spinners here, with Decker having the only solid game. He’s up to an .818 OPS in his first taste of pro ball.

GCL W 11-3

Bramdon Perez, CF: 2-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

Daniel Bakst, DH: 3-4, 2 BB, 2 R 1 RBI

Dean Miller, LF: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 5 RBI, 2 K

Danny Diaz, 3B: 1-5, 1 R

Fabian Andrade, 1B: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Brock Bell: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K

Zach Schneider: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K

You know how they say a walk is as good as a hit? Miller certainly hopes so because he was a single away from the cycle but did draw a walk. Does that still count? Well, that’s between you and God.

DSL 1 G1 L 5-7

Eduardo Lopez, CF: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 CS

Darel Belen, 1B: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Albert Feliz, LF: 2-5, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K

DSL 1 G2 L 2-3

Brainer Bonaci, SS: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Darel Belen, DH: 2-4

DSL 2 L 2-4

Axel James, 2B: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Gregori Custodio, 1B: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 K

Frailyn Sanchez: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K
