PAWTUCKET – As his players danced to loud music while taking swigs of beer in the other room, Arnie Beyeler stood in the manager’s office, his t-shirt completely soaked after several players cornered him near the visitors dugout and dumped beer all over him.
The fruits of victory are sweet if you’re the Pawtucket Red Sox. The locals clinched the I.L. North Saturday night after rallying for a 12-7 victory past Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The division title is the franchise’s first since 2003 and the fifth since 1991, when division play was introduced in the International League.
