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.
Game Two will feature Tony Pena Jr. (9-6, 3.56) for Pawtucket and lefty Ryan Edell (5-5, 3.27) throwing for Lehigh Valley.
With the schedule change, the three PawSox home games in the I.L. semifinals against Lehigh Valley are as follows:
Game A: Saturday, September 10 at 6:05 p.m.
Game B: Sunday, September 11 at 1:05 p.m.*
Game C: Monday, September 12 at 6:05 p.m.*
*If Necessary
Ticket-holders for games B and C at McCoy Stadium now have the option of exchanging their tickets at the box office for Saturday or Sunday's game (Game A or B).
