Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Boston Red Sox optioned pitchers Alfredo Aceves and Allen Webster to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday.
Both pitchers appeared in Boston's 11-8 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday. Webster started for the Red Sox and was shelled for seven runs on six hits and two walks in just 2 1/3 frames before Aceves entered from the bullpen and recorded the final two outs in the third inning.
Over six starts for the Red Sox, Webster owns a 1-2 record with a 9.57 earned run average, while Aceves is 4-1 with a 4.86 ERA over 11 games, including six starts, with the BoSox this season.
