PawSox Get Walked Off Upon In Final Road Game Of Season, Club Fought Valiantly With Brentz Smashing A Game Tying Shot In The 9th Inning
The 2019 road slate for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox has come to a close.
On Sunday in Buffalo the PawSox fought to end the season with a .500 road record but fell just short with the Bisons walking off in the bottom of the 11th inning with a 5-4 final score. With the loss the PawSox drop to 56-75 on the season and a road record of 34-36.
Mike Shawaryn was the starter in a spot (ish) start situation and performed admirably for Pawtucket. Shawaryn allowed a first inning home run but was able to settle down going 5 innings allowing 2 earned runs on 6 base hits while striking out 3 batters.
After Shawaryn issued the first inning home run Red Sox prospect Bobby Dalbec clapped back with a 2-run shot in the top of the 2nd inning to pull Pawtucket ahead 2-1. Buffalo did hit another solo home run off Shawaryn in the bottom of the 2nd however to tie the game at 2-apiece.
Shawaryn was replaced by Jennry Mejia in the 6th inning with Mejia going 1 scoreless.
In the top of the 8th inning Dalbec recorded another RBI this one on a scorcher up the middle for an RBI single giving Pawtucket a 3-2 lead. But this was a game of battling back for the Bisons who scored two runs in the bottom of the 8th to take a 4-3 lead off PawSox reliever Domingo Tapia.
Pawtucket wasn’t going down without a fight however as Bryce Brentz belted a tying solo home run in the top of the 9th inning to force extra innings.
Trevor Kelley and Hector Veleazquez both turned in scorless outings but with the offense failing to find the game winning hit the Bisons were able to walk-off on Colten Brewer who gave up the game winning single to Roemon Fields.
As for Red Sox rehabber Michael Chavis he went 0-for-3 at the plate striking out 2 times. Chavis has now been held hitless in 2 of his 3 rehab games as the infielder tries to come back from an AC Joint Sprain. Boston is punting on Chavis’s activation with Alex Cora telling the media out in San Diego that Chavis will have an extended rehab with the goal being to get him at-bats.
Chavis, 24-years-old, is likely to return to McCoy Stadium to take part in final homestand finale of the season.
Pawtucket will return home on Monday where they kick off their final home-stand of the year with this finale lasting 9 games. Scranton/Wilkes Barre is in town to start for a four-game week-day set. Pawtucket is 22-39 at McCoy Stadium this season and will look to improve that mark.
Billy McMillon‘s club probable rotation will be: Kyle Hart, Ryan Weber, Teddy Stankiewicz, and Erasmo Ramirez.
