Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox

Final Score: PawSox 5, Durham Bulls 1

Notable Pitchers:

Matt Barnes (IP, H, 0 R, 2 BB, K)

Ronald Belisario (IP, 0 H, 0 R, K)

Heath Hembree (IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K)

Henry Owens (6 IP, 4 H, R, 2 BB, 9 K)

  • Owens appears to have finally shaken the control problems that have plagued him for much of the season. The lanky lefty has not allowed more than two walks since June 9 and is finally looking like the pitcher that’s consistently been one of Boston’s top prospects. Last night was another dominant start by Owens and he could be in line for a promotion soon.

Notable Position Players:

Jackie Bradley Jr. (3-5, CS)

  • Bradley continues to rake in Pawtucket, as he’s now slashing .317/.393/.474 with the PawSox. However, he’s still yet to get a real chance with the Red Sox this year (he’s 4-30 with inconsistent playing time). There’s not much space for him in Boston, but if the Red Sox plan on him being a part of the team’s plans, then they’ll need to make space.

Rusney Castillo (2-4)

Marco Hernandez (1-4, K)

Daniel Nava (0-5, 2 K)
