Too bad it’s September instead of May.
The story of the 2009 Pawtucket Red Sox was their lack of offense, but you couldn’t say that about the team last night. The PawSox combined for 22 runs with 28 hits as they swept a pair from the Syracuse Chiefs yesterday 12-5 and 10-2 at Alliance Bank Stadium.
In game one Jeff Bailey, Jed Lowrie, Mark Wagner, and Sean Danielson each drove in two runs. Dusty Brown and Travis Denker checked in with three hits apiece.
Adam Mills (2-2) put together another start that was just good enough to earn him the win. He worked five innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on nine hits. He walked one and struck out two.
PawSox MVP Chris Carter collected four of Pawtucket’s 11 hits in game two. Bubba Bell had three RBI’s while Jeff Natale belted a homer and drove in two. Angel Chavez also drove in a pair of runs.
Charlie Zink (6-15) ended a disappointing 2009 on a high note, earning the win. The knuckleballer threw five innings, giving up one run on five hits. He struck out three and did not walk a batter.
The 2009 season finale is this afternoon (2:00 PM) in Syracuse as Enrique Gonzalez (8-10, 5.24 ERA) throws for the Pawsox. Shairon Martis (4-4, 5.00 ERA) pitches for the Chiefs.
