BOSTON -- For the second time in his past three starts, Red Sox rookie left-hander Henry Owens faced the Orioles. Though such familiarity can often be a detriment to a young pitcher, that was not the case on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, where Owens led Boston to a 2-0 victory.
It was the second time in September he tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Orioles. On Sunday, Owens allowed just three hits and a walk with five strikeouts before leaving to a standing ovation.
