Red Sox minor lines: Henry Owens surging at just the right time

Henry Owens is rolling, and he's doing so at the very moment the Red Sox might need him.

Pawtucket L 2-4

Daniel Nava: 2-4, BB, K
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-4, 2 K
Blake Swihart: 0-3, 2 K
Rusney Castillo: 2-4, K, 2 SB
Garin Cecchini: 2-4, SB

Henry Owens: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR
Pat Light: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 1 K
Edwin Escobar: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Pawtucket W 7-2

Daniel Nava: 3-4, 2B
Rusney Castillo: 2-5
Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-4, BB, K
Allen Craig: 4-5
Garin Cecchini: 2-5, HR, SB, E

Keith Couch: 6 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Henry Owens' revival in Pawtucket is exceptionally good news for a Red Sox team that might find itself in need of yet another starter in the weeks to come. There's less need for Garin Cecchini, but I'm sure we'll all take an 11-for-19 stretch all the same after such a rough few months.

Portland L 3-7

Carlos Asuaje: 0-3
Sam Travis: 0-3, BB
Manuel Margot: 1-4, K

Justin Haley: 2 IP, 11 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Portland L 1-6

Carlos Asuaje: 0-4, K
Sam Travis: 2-4

Williams Jerez: 2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Two disasters in three starts now for Haley. To this point, a 3.68 ERA in Greenville had been Haley's worst season. But this year he's just a mess. One wonders if there's something physically wrong with him, or if he's just finally hit a hurdle he can't easily surmount.

Salem W 3-2

Wendell Rijo: 3-4, 2B, BB

Daniel McGrath: 4 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Greenville L 6-9

Michael Chavis: 1-5, HR
Rafael Devers: 4-4, BB
Nick Longhi: 1-5, 2B, 2 K
Javier Guerra: 2-4

Greenville W 11-8

Yoan Moncada: 0-5, 4 K, E
Michael Chavis: 2-6, 2B, 3 K
Javier Guerra: 3-6, 2 K

The day off did the red-hot Yoan Moncada no good, clearly. One hopes the same will not prove true for Rafael Devers coming off that 4-for-4 night.

Lowell L 0-3

Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-3, BB, 2 K, E, A
Andrew Benintendi: 0-3, BB, K
Austin Rei: 0-1, BB. E
Victor Acosta: 0-4, 3 K
Tucker Tubbs: 0-3, K

Lowell L 6-8

Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-5, 2 K
Tate Matheny: 1-3, K
Austin Rei: 2-5, 3B, K, E
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, BB, K, E
Tucker Tubbs: 0-1, 2 BB, K
Mitchell Gunsolus: 2-4

Since his 5-for-13 start, Andrew Benintendi is 0-for-12 in his last four games.

GCL Red Sox W 5-1

Trent Kemp: 0-3, BB, K
Yoan Aybar: 2-3, BB, K

GCL Red Sox L 0-2

Yoan Aybar: 0-3, K
Jagger Rusconi: 2-3, 2B, K
