Game 133- Chiefs vs. PawSox, August 21, 2008

It’s the rubber game tonight (7:05pm) of the three game series between the PawSox host the Syracuse Chiefs at McCoy. Syracuse took game one of the series, 4-2, on Tuesday while Pawtucket won last night’s contest, 8-5. LHP Ricky Romero (1-2, 3.52 ERA) throws for Syracuse. He’ll be opposed by Bartolo Colon (2-1, 1.93 ERA) for Pawtucket.

He did not figure in the decision, working only one inning and giving up two hits. In his six previous starts with Pawtucket, Colon has not surrendered a run in four of them. Colon will still be on a pitch limit of between 45 and 50 pitches.
