PAWTUCKET â€“ Arnie Beyeler had everything figured out â€“ or so he believed prior to discussing his baseball career ambitions with Brad Mills a few years back during spring training.
At the time Beyeler was managing in Double-A Portland while Mills served as Terry Franconaâ€™s bench coach in Boston. One day the pair engaged in some casual chatter when the minor-league skipper revealed what he considered the pinnacle: coaching third base for a major league club.
ALLENTOWN, Pa. â€” A brief period of clearing skies provided some false hope that the PawSox may be able to play the opener of their Round One Governorsâ€™ Cup Series against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Unfortunately, the clearing skies disappeared and another heavy downpour forced the postponement of the game.
The series will now be pushed back by one day, with the opener being played Thursday night at 7:05 at Lehigh Valley. PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler will keep the same pitching rotation in effect, with Matt Fox (10-4, 3.96) going up against Dave Bush (1-2, 3.91) in the opener.
