PAWTUCKET â Fresh off a 6-2 swing through the International Leagueâs South Division, the Pawtucket Red Sox defeated Gwinnett by a 5-3 count Tuesday night before 3,596 fans at McCoy Stadium.
Making his first appearance on the mound since getting roughed up by Minnesota last Wednesday at Fenway Park, Allen Webster tossed five innings of one-run ball en route to picking up his second victory with the PawSox.
PAWTUCKET â Finally, a little clarification to âmanagerâs decision.â
For roughly seven minutes Tuesday, PawSox skipper Gary DiSarcina stood in his office and shed some light as to why shortstop Jose Iglesias was absent from the lineup for three consecutive days after getting removed in the top of the fifth inning of the May 4 contest.
It was fairly obvious that DiSarcina caught wind as to what some folks were passing off as the explanation to why Iglesias spent time on the bench. Such suspicions were way off base because they didnât come straight from the horseâs mouth.
WOONSOCKET â Mount St. Charles head coach Josh DâAbate expected his crew to come out firing on all cylinders against visiting South Kingstown on Tuesday night.
After all, the Rebels had entered the important clash at 9-1, their lone loss occurring against Division I-South leader Coventry in only the third tilt of the season. He anticipated his Mounties, leading the North section, to want to prove its wherewithal against one of Rhode Islandâs best.
