Henry Owens' No-Hit Streak Reaches 15 2/3

Owens Climbing Ladder
After seeing a young left-hander (Matt Moore) completely dominate the Red Sox last night, it's somewhat comforting to know that we have our own port-side stud making his way through the organization. Henry Owens extended his no-hit innings streak to 15 2/3 on Monday night with five frames for Boston's Class 'A' Advanced Salem Red Sox. Owens struck out nine batters and lowered his ERA to 2.78. MLB.com ranks Owens as the fifth best prospect in the Carmine Hose system—and he is rapidly making a bid to climb that list even further.
