Vitek has reach base in all 16 games, 13 of them with hits. Still showing no power.

Bogaerts hit streak in 9 games not 10 per his MILB page last 10 games. He was hitless back on April 11.

Iglesias is 2/3 with a 2B and a BB so far today.

Not stunning so far, but in roughly 1/7th of last years AAA at-bats, he has 1/3 of the walks.

WMB is really streaky, but it's good to know that his ups could potentially be THIS good. Key is how he manages the downs.

Salem PPD is a true sign that the baseball gods are mad at Red Sox fans.

After starting the season .111 / .150 / .111 (2-18, BB, SF) in his first 5 games ...

he's .306 / .419 / .333 in 9 games since.

And Clay Davenport has him at +3 defensive runs in his first 12 games. Even with rounding, that's at least +30 / 150. Obviously there's very little meaning to such a SSS, and he's obviously not that good, but it's still really reassuring to see these simple defensive metrics, based on game logs, reporting him as outrageously good, when that's what all the scouts say.

Indeed. I'm pretty sure it's the MLE curse of a plague of frogs.

STORIES

PAWSOX

Game Story

The Pawtucket offense continued belting the ball as the PawSox beat Durham again, 9-5, on Saturday afternoon.
Pawtucket scored at least one run in each of the first six innings. That followed a game in which the team scored in every inning except the fourth on the way to a 15-10 triumph Friday night.
Will Middlebrooks, the third baseman who has jumped to the top of the list among all of the Boston prospects, continues to rip the ball. Middlebrooks had a home run off the foul pole in right and an RBI single. He now leads the International League with 22 RBI in 17 games. He is second in the league in home runs, with seven (he has hit at least one in each of the last four games). He is fourth in the league in hitting, at .379. He has had at least two hits in 10 of his 16 starts.
Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler is batting him sixth. He has Mauro Gomez, a free-agent signee out of the Atlanta organization, in the clean-up spot. Mauro, who takes vicious swings, has hit three home runs in the two games on the homestand thus far. He crushed one over the berm in left in the first inning Saturday. His ball whacked the Hasbro “Go PawSox sign” and ricocheted back onto the back. Gomez has five home runs and 14 RBI and is hitting .355.
Lars Anderson joined the home run fun before the crowd of 5,095 when he ripped one deep in the seats in right-center in the fifth, his first of the year.


SEADOGS

Game Story

The Mets combined a hit-and-run with a double steal to turn four consecutive singles into three runs on their way to a 6-1 Eastern League victory at NYSEG Stadium.
"They have team speed and good athletes," Sea Dogs Manager Kevin Boles said. "It's our responsibility to slow things down.
"We have to take care of the ball and make sure our stretch times are right, too."
The Sea Dogs have lost three straight and 6 of 7, and own the worst record in the Eastern League, 4-13.
Sea Dogs reliever Will Latimer (1-1) took over for starting pitcher Chris Martin with the game tied in the sixth.
Jefry Marte and Eric Campbell got the Mets started with consecutive one-out singles. They were both on the move when Josh Rodriguez singled to right field, breaking the tie and putting runners on the corners.
Travis Ozga singled to score another run and again put men on the corners. He was then part of a double steal that included Rodriguez making a successful break to the plate for the third run of the inning.
Martin was strong through five innings for the Sea Dogs except for needing 77 pitches, which ended his day early on a pitch count.
Martin shut out the Mets through four innings and allowed his only run on a fifth-inning double-play ball. He gave up two hits and hit Joe Bonfe with pitches twice while striking out three.
"He pitched great," Boles said after Martin lowered his ERA from 6.14 to 5.03. "He had real good life to his fastball. His slider was crisp.


DRIVE

Game Story

Greenville Drive rightfielder Henry Ramos collected two of his team’s eight hits, Saturday.
The big one came in the eighth inning as his double to left-center scored two runs to give the Drive a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the Augusta GreenJackets in front of a Fluor Field crowd of 5,489.
Greenville delivered after missing on several opportunities to either tie or take the lead throughout the game.
“Ramos came through big,” said Greenville manger Carlos Febles. “He got a great at-bat, I think a 10-pitch at-bat and then got the two-run double to give us the lead. It feels great, every time you get the ‘W.’”
Designated hitter Blake Swihart reached on a fielding error by GreenJackets third baseman Jose Cuevas to open the eighth. First baseman David Renfroe was walked with one out to put runners on first and second. Ramos then launched a double to left.
“All I was doing was trying to control my game,” said Ramos through interpreter, Greenville pitcher Mickey Pena. “I was looking for my pitch so I could drive in some runs, thankfully, two came in.”

WMB's has really cut down on his K's so far. Just a 13% K% this year vs. 25% last year.
