When Haas knocked down a 10-foot birdie putt on the 452-yard, par-four 13th to move he and Andrade to 19-under, the board just behind the green indicated they had sliced the gap to a mere shot.

Familiar faces await Middlebrooks in Pawtucket

June 25, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Will Middlebrooks does not need Pawtucket manager Gary DiSarcina or hitting coach Dave Joppie – two names who have previous player-coach relationships with the scuffling third baseman – to get in his face and flat-out tell the owner of a .192 big-league batting average this season where the areas of improvement lie.
“He knows what he needs to do,” said DiSarcina in anticipation of Middlebrooks’ arrival at McCoy Stadium on Wednesday, one day after getting informed by Boston skipper John Farrell that his season-long offensive funk had earned him a demotion to the Triple-A ranks.
