One step at a time for PawSox manager Beyeler

PawSox playoff opener pushed back to Thursday night

September 7, 2011

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A brief period of clearing skies provided some false hope that the PawSox may be able to play the opener of their Round One Governors’ Cup Series against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Unfortunately, the clearing skies disappeared and another heavy downpour forced the postponement of the game.
The series will now be pushed back by one day, with the opener being played Thursday night at 7:05 at Lehigh Valley. PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler will keep the same pitching rotation in effect, with Matt Fox (10-4, 3.96) going up against Dave Bush (1-2, 3.91) in the opener.

Justin Menard, 25, whose last known address was on Fifth Avenue, had been on the lam since the July 14 incident on Robinson Street.
