PAWTUCKET â€“ PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler likes to point out that each playoff game has been the equivalent of a box of chocolates â€“ you just never know whoâ€™s going to play the role of hero on a given night.
Wednesday saw Pawtucketâ€™s battery of pitcher Zach Stewart and catcher Dan Butler step to the forefront and take their bows. Their induction into the clubâ€™s ever-expanding legion of primetime performers was officially cemented after PawSox silenced the Charlotte Knights, 2-0, in Game Two of the Governorsâ€™ Cup finals before an audience of 3,525.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Lately, much attention has been paid to the hitting exploits of Bryce Brentz â€“ deservedly so, too.
The outfield prospect carried a .471 postseason average into Game Two of the Governorsâ€™ Cup Championship Series, a figure buoyed by a little bit of everything from two home runs to two doubles to five runs batted in.
