Red Sox Minor Lines: Lowell stays alive

They can win it all with a victory on Tuesday

Lowell W 3-1

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 1-5, 2 RBI, 2 K

Roldani Baldwin, C: 1-4, 2 K

Cameron Cannon, 2B: 0-4, 1 K

Nick Decker, RF: 1-2, 2 BB, 1 R

Antoni Flores, SS: 0-4, 1 R, 2 K

Stephen Scott, DH: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Noah Song: 3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K (45 pitches)

Chris Murphy: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K (62 pitches)

This Spinners team was not going to go down without a fight. Already having made it farther than any other squad in team history, the Spinners were on the brink of dropping the best-of-three championship but came through and forced a decisive Game Three on Tuesday. All of the action from Monday’s win came in the second inning, with Lowell starting the frame with a single, error, single, hit by pitch and single. That put three runs on the board, and that was enough to win the game. The pitching for the Spinners was fantastic, with Song looking good again and Murphy continuing to dominate competition. This was the last we’ll see of these two in 2019, and for Song it may be the last we see of him for a couple of years. If so, it was a nice way to put a bow on what has been a strong season for a pair of draftees. The final minor-league game of the season for any team in the Red Sox organization will be on Tuesday in Brooklyn at 6:30 PM ET. Based on how their last turn went, I would expect Jay Groome and Ryan Zeferjahn to handle the early innings in this one, though that’s not official.
