Double-A Portland Sea Dogs
Final Score: Sea Dogs 7, New Hampshire Fisher Cats 2
Justin Haley (5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, BB, 3 K)
- After a dominant stretch in his first taste of Portland last season, Haley has struggled mightily in his second time around. Through 20 starts, he’s sporting a 5.38 ERA and his command has suffered as he is the owner of a 4.1 BB/9. Still, yesterday represents a strong start for Haley and, if he can string some solid performances together, he could be on his way to Pawtucket next season.
Notable Position Players:
Carlos Asuaje (2-5, SB)
Tzu-Wei Lin (1-2, BB)
Manuel Margot (3-5, 3B, SB)
- Margot likely has the best raw speed in the Red Sox organization and he put it on display yesterday. With a stolen base, a triple, and three hits to boot, Margot shows his potential to be an elite leadoff hitter in the future and showed the form that has placed him so high on mid-season prospect rankings.
Henry Ramos (1-4, 2B)
Sam Travis (1-5, 2 K)
