Red Sox minor lines: Henry Owens' incredible hitless streak

New, comments

Henry Owens does not give up hits anymore. At all.

USA TODAY Sports

Portland Game 1 W 8-3

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 2-5, 2B, K
Michael Almanzar: 1-4, BB
Travis Shaw: 0-3, BB, E

Portland Game 2 W 5-4 (In 7)

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 2-4, K, 2 SB
Michael Almanzar: 1-2, BB
Christian Vazquez: 2-3
Travis Shaw: 0-2, BB, K

Keith Couch: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 HR

After a slightly rough patch, a set of multi-hit games is a nice sign for Garin Cecchini. Of course Cecchini could go 0-for from here-on-in and still make all sorts of top-50 lists.

Salem W 5-2

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 0-1, K
Deven Marrero: 0-4, 2 K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-3, BB, SB
Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K, CS
Mookie Betts: 0-4, K, E

Henry Owens: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 9 K

Henry Owens last gave up a hit on July 11, in the top of the third inning. It's been some 14 frames since then, with over 20 strikeouts in between. You might say he's on a roll.

Ramos, for the record, got himself ejected over a strike call, not hurt.

Greenville L 3-7

Box Score

Jose Vinicio: 1-5, K
Kendrick Perkins: 0-1

Cody Kukuk: 4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Nobody in Greenville is ever on a roll anymore. Oh well...

GCL Red Sox W 2-0

Box Score

Jon Denney: 0-4, 2 K
Jordon Austin: 1-4, 2 K

Jon Denney has been playing only sparingly these past couple weeks, and it's showing up in his results, unsurprisingly.
