Barnes wins debut; PawSox reduce magic number to one

PAWTUCKET — As far as Triple-A debuts go, Matt Barnes looked quite comfortable.

The slender right-hander was in total command on the McCoy Stadium mound Thursday night, tossing 5.1 scoreless innings that featured a little bit of everything. His Pawtucket teammates were able to make Barnes a victor as the locals silenced Syracuse, 2-0, before 5,021 fans.
