PAWTUCKET â After the Pawtucket Red Sox had eked out a pair of stunning â and thrilling â come-from-behind, one-run victories the previous two nights, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre returned the favor on Tuesday evening.
The RailRiders notched two unearned runs, one each in the sixth and seventh frames, to thump the PawSox, 2-1, before a sparse crowd of 4,430 fans at McCoy Stadium.
Manager Dave Mileyâs crew rode a superb mound outing from starter Graham Stoneburner, not to mention fellow righty Dellin Betances, to end Pawtucketâs win streak at three.
PAWTUCKET â From Gary DiSarcinaâs perch in the PawSox dugout, the manager is able to hone in and get a proper read on the placid look on Allen Websterâs face, one that until recently had singularly defined the right-handerâs facial expression on the mound.
âHeâs got a demeanor thatâs really laid back, which is useful at times,â noted DiSarcina.

PAWTUCKET â For PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina, seeing Derek Jeter propel himself through the rehab process this past weekend helped conjure up one pleasant memory after another.
âI hadnât seen him in a while, but the first thing I thought of when I saw him was âMan, heâs a classy individual,ââ DiSarcina expressed. âIn my mind, he and Cal Ripken Jr. were the torchbearers. Cal handed it over to him, and not because Derek won, but itâs the way he won.
