Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox
Final Score: PawSox 5, Durham Bulls 1
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.

Marco Hernandez (1-4, K)
