Pawsox Beat Knights To Take 1-0 Series Lead

Tuesday, September 11, 2012


While it may not be the best of times for the Boston Red Sox in 2012, their triple-A affiliate - the Pawtucket Red Sox continue to have a magical season.

The Pawsox had four players with multiple hits combined with solid pitching from Steven Wright Tuesday night at McCoy Stadium.  It all added up to a 7-2 win for Pawtucket in game 1 of their best-of-five Governor's Cup Series against the Charlotte Knights.

The two teams traded runs in the first inning before Danny Valencia belted a 2-run homerun in the bottom of the third to put the Pawsox in front for good.

Wright turned in a solid 7 innings of work allowing just 2 runs on 6 hits.  He walked 2 and struck out 6.

What's amazing about this season for the Pawsox is the fact that there has been a revolving door in the team's clubhouse at McCoy Stadium due to all of the injuries in Boston and subsequent call-ups.  The fact that they are now playing for the International League's Championship is quite an accomplishment.

The win gives the Pawsox a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series with game 2 slated for 7:05pm Wednesday night at McCoy Stadium.  It will be the final home game of the year for Pawtucket as the series shifts to Charlotte for game 3 on Thursday.  If neccessary, games 4 and 5 of the series would also be played in Charlotte on Friday and Saturday.

Tickets for game 2 are available on-line at and at the McCoy Stadium box office.
