Pawsox Prepare to Defend Governors’ Cup

Monday, September 09, 2013

 

That winning feeling remains consistent down on the farm in the Red Sox organization.

Thanks to a 3-0 win over the Rochester Red Wings Sunday afternoon at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, the International League North Division champion Pawtucket Red Sox advance to the IL finals - also known as the Governors' Cup - for a second straight year.  This year, they'll face the Durham Bulls (Tampa Bay's Triple A team) for the championship in a best-of-five game series beginning Tuesday in Durham, NC.

The Pawsox are the defending Governors' Cup champs, having defeated the Charlotte Knights in 2012.

In the 2nd inning Sunday, Jeremy Hazelbaker started a rally with a two out triple. Dan Butler followed with an RBI single with two strikes to score Hazelbaker and take a 1-0 lead. Justin Henry then doubled before Heiker Meneses singled to center field scoring Butler and Henry to give Pawtucket a 3-0 advantage.

Four pitchers, led by starter Charlie Haeger, got credit for the shut out win. 

The PawSox will hit the road to Durham Bull Athletic Park and begin the Governors' Cup Finals Tuesday night at 7:05pm. Pitching match ups are still to be determined. Pawtucket will return home to McCoy Stadium for Game 3 Friday night the 13th at 7:05 pm and if-necessary games Saturday at 6:05 and Sunday at 1:05 pm.
