It was supposed to be Connor Seabold making this start for Worcester, but the Red Sox scratched the young righty in case they needed him in the bigs. He hasn’t been called up, but the pitching here in Triple-A didn’t miss a beat. It’s been a bit of a weird season for Hart, who was in the majors just last season. He’s been a bit of a forgotten name, and really it’s hard to see him sticking in the bigs unless his stuff has drastically changed, but the southpaw isn’t giving up. Since the start of August he has a 3.38 ERA over 40 innings with 33 strikeouts and 12 walks. At the plate, there wasn’t much going on besides another homer from Cordero, who is going to be one of the most interesting players to plan for this winter.

DSL Red L 3-10

Albertson Asigen, RF: 1-3, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Jose Mendez, SS: 1-1, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Jose Ramirez (SP; L): 2.1 IP, 6 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Efren Diaz: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

DSL Blue W 10-3

Jhostynxon Garcia, CF: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Johnfrank Salazar, SS: 1-2, 1 2B, 1 R

Armando Sierra, DH: 3-3, 1 2B, 3 R, 3 RBI

Alexis Hernandez, RF/1B: 1-3, 1 3B, 2 R, 1 RBI

Yordanny Monegro: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 K

This was another head-to-head matchup between the two intra-organizational affiliates, and once again the Blue squad came out in front. Red stopped their five-game win streak the last time they faced off, but Blue got back out on top this time to bring their record in these matchups this year to 7-3. Sierra certainly stood on the most here. He got a six-figure bonus in this most recent signing period, and while he’s really struggled hitting for power — he’s got an Isolated Power (SLG - AVG) of just .100 — he’s getting on base at a .371 clip. This last month in particular has been impressive, as he’s hitting .367/.424/.500 in September.
