Sea Dog Moncada first from Cuba to win Futures MVP

SAN DIEGO -- It was few minutes before Boston's top prospect, Yoan Moncada, was set to bat in the eighth inning, and he was feeling anxious.

The 21-year-old second baseman patted down customized Red Sox eye black and fiddled with a bright yellow shin guard that read "Moncada" across the back. He tightened his shiny silver wrist bands and matching arm sleeves a couple of times.

His thick gold chain peeked out of the top of his No. 11 jersey with every move. His stylish red-white-and-blue glove rested near him on the bench.

KEITH COUCH NAMED EASTERN LEAGUE PITCHER OF THE WEEK

Portland, Maine - The Eastern League of Professional Baseball Clubs has selected Portland Sea Dogs' starting pitcher Keith Couch as the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the week of July 4th - July 10th, 2016.

Couch pitched a complete game, nine-inning shutout in an 11-0 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on July 7th at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. He allowed seven hits, walked none, and struck out six.

Couch now holds the Sea Dogs franchise record for career complete games with seven. He has worked three consecutive complete games, including back-to-back nine-inning performances in his past two starts.

A native of Elmont, NY, Couch was selected by the Red Sox in the 13th round of the 2010 June Draft out of Adelphi University.

In his career as a Sea Dog, Couch is 25-9 with a 3.33 ERA (111 ER/300.1 IP) in 58 G (43 starts). The righty has struck out 202 while walking 85. Couch's 25 wins are the second most ever for a Sea Dogs pitcher in franchise history, behind only Michael Tejera (31).

This marks the second time in Couch's career that he's been named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week, he also earned the award for the week of August 19th, 2013. Couch is the second Sea Dog to win the award in 2016, joining Aaron Wilkerson, who won for the week of April 7-17th.

The Sea Dogs begin a four-game homestand with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Thursday, July 14th, at Hadlock Field.

"Killer Bs" give Red Sox hope

On July 8, with the Red Sox facing the Tampa Bay Rays at home, Mookie Betts led off the first inning with a walk. Two batters later, Xander Bogaerts singled him home. Three batters after that, Jackie Bradley, Jr. added a sacrifice fly to give Boston a 2-0 lead. The Red Sox would go on to win the game, 6-5, thanks in large part to contributions from these three young All-Stars and former Portland Sea Dogs.

Portland and Boston have had an embarrassment of riches in terms of young talent flowing through the system in recent years. Bradley, now 26, played in Portland in 2012, hitting .271/.373/.437 (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage) and introducing Maine to his highlight-reel defense. He spent some time with the big-league club in 2013, 2014, and 2015, but struggled with the bat before breaking out this year, hitting .296/.379/.552 with 14 home runs through Saturday’s game.
