PawSox RHP William Cuevas Impressive In Loss

Impressive pitching performances in defeats have become sort of a hallmark of the Red Sox organization this year—at every level. At AAA Pawtucket yesterday, the trend continued. William Cuevas—a 24-year old righty—threw seven impressive innings of two-run ball, yielding just four hits. Of course, the punch-less PawSox offense—emulating their big-league bretheren—put up a goose-egg in the 4-0 loss. Cuevas—who has a wispy Pedro-like frame—was 8-5 with a 3.40 ERA over nineteen starts at AA Portland before his promotion to the next level. Said Pawtucket manager Kevin Boles, "...This was a great debut for William. I really liked his tempo and pace." Perhaps another kid pitcher to look for down the road.
