First, the good news. Henry Owens' debut was relatively solid.
Now the bad news. The Red Sox bullpen was horrible.
Owens (pictured), the highly-touted Boston rookie, allowed just one run over his first five innings before being lifted two batters into the bottom of the sixth inning. He was ultimately charged with three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five.
Robbie Ross Jr. allowed two inherited runners to score in the sixth and then the real fun began in the seventh when the Yankees slammed a pair of 3-run homers off Craig Breslow and Alexi Ogando.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
