June 14, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Xander Bogaerts wasted little time in making himself feel quite at home in his new surroundings.

All the 20-year-old did in his PawSox debut was a little bit of everything, his efforts going a long way in Pawtucket grabbing both ends of Friday’s doubleheader against Buffalo. The home team won the first game in dramatic 1-0 fashion as Alex Hassan delivered a walk-off hit with two down in the seventh inning.
