Justin Thomas reflects on Boston bullpen stint; PawSox clip Red Wings

May 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET – For Justin Thomas, the near month he spent as member of Boston’s bullpen was merely a case of guilt by association.
Even though the 28-year-old lefthander was relegated to afterthought status – while with the Red Sox, Thomas allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings prior to getting farmed out to Pawtucket on April 27 – he was still part of a unit that became known as the land of diminished returns. No matter which reliever BoSox manager Bobby Valentine summoned, disaster seemed to follow.

PawSox' Hassan able to turn things around

May 9, 2012

Rochester snaps PawSox's four-game win streak

May 8, 2012

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox were able to dodge the raindrops Tuesday night. The same cannot be said of the Rochester Red Wings.
Buoyed by 5 2/3 innings of strong pitching by Liam Hendriks, the Red Wings grounded the PawSox, 3-1, before 3,325 rain-free fans at McCoy Stadium. The forecast called for a major weather disturbance to arrive at some point during the game, but the precipitation was able to hold off long enough that the teams were able to get this one in.
