Report: Bowden summoned from Triple-A
The Providence Journal reports the right-hander has left McCoy Stadium and will join the Red Sox here at Rangers Ballpark. The Texas Rangers defeated Boston 10-9 in 11 innings Friday night and manager Terry Francona blew out his entire bullpen.
This will be Bowden’s second stint with the Red Sox this season, and he has not allowed a run in 2 1/3 innings of relief.
