High-A Salem Red Sox

Final Score: Carolina Mudcats 4, Red Sox 3

Notable Pitchers:

Trey Ball (6 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 4 R, 3 BB, 2 K)

  • This most recent start from Ball isn’t quite as good as a number of starts on his recent run, but it’s hardly a disaster either. Before yesterday, the lanky southpaw hadn’t allowed four runs or more in an outing since May 29th and in that span of seven starts since then, he’s made four shutout performances. It’s important to note that his peripherals don’t exactly believe in his strong results yet, as he has just 49 strikeouts versus 36 walks in 85.2 innings this season, but his 3.68 ERA is still a step in the right direction.

Notable Position Players:

Mauricio Dubon (1-4, K)

Tzu-Wei Lin (2-5, 2B)

Wendell Rijo (0-5, 2 K)
