DURHAM, N.C. â For a team that has enjoyed a champagne bath or two in recent weeks, this was not the ending the Pawtucket Red Sox had in mind.
The International League champion PawSox felt the sting of the Pacific Coast Leagueâs best Tuesday night as Reno romped to the Triple-A National Championship, 10-3, at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Aces jumped all over PawSox starter Nelson Figueroa as the playoff hero was knocked out after just two innings.
DURHAM, N.C. â If thereâs anyone who can relate to the coming-out-of-nowhere playoff run that the Pawtucket Red Sox have enjoyed, itâs Rick Burleson.
A former Red Sox and PawSox shortstop, Burleson is presently the hitting coach for the Reno Aces. The 61-year-oldâs presence in the Eastern Time Zone this week conjures up memories pertaining to Pawtucketâs first Governorsâ Cup-producing club in 1973. More than eager to take a stroll down memory lane, Burleson says the â73 PawSox possessed future major-league contributors by the bushel.
