Good News from Pawtucket: Owens and Vazquez

The PawSox beat the Buffalo Bisons (sic) last night, 2-0. (Note to Bisons management: the plural of Bison is Bison.)  

On a cold night, Henry Owens threw six innings of one-hit ball, with that one hit getting doubled up on the next play. He faced 21 batters, striking out eight and walking three. Those three walks are likely to be the biggest concern for the Red Sox, since Owens struggled with his command in Spring training. 
Christian Vazquez had a good night as well. He went 1 for 2 at the plate with a double and two walks.  Vazquez knows how to work an at bat.  He struck out once. 

The positive outing from Owens was particularly huge, considering the state of Boston’s starting pitching right now.
