Owens throws shutout inning in Futures

Red Sox prospect Henry Owens pitched a shutout inning for the victorious U.S. team in the Futures Game Sunday at Minneapolis.

Owens, who is 12-3 with a 2.21 ERA for Double-A Portland, was the starter for the U.S. against the World team. After getting the first two batters, Owens gave up a two-out single but struck out Kennys Vargas swinging at a changeup to end the inning.

Sean Coyle, the other member of the Red Sox organization who participated in the game, started at second base and went 0-for-2 batting second in the order.

Coyle is batting .336 with 11 home runs for Portland.
