Notes: In round one of the playoffs PawSox starter Zach Stewart allowed four runs on two walks and seven hits, two of which were home runs, in a game one win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He will need to pitch more like his August 23rd start when he threw a season-high seven innings against these very Knights. In that outing Stewart allowed only four hits and two runs and did not allow any walks. This will be his 13th start for Pawtucket since being acquired from the Chicago White Sox in the Kevin Youkilis deal...Due to the early injury of Knights starter Charlie Leesman last night and the subsequent move to bring in scheduled game two starter Andre Rienzo, manager Joel Skinner has bumped his staff up one game. So Charlie Shirek moves from game three to tonight, Matt Zaleski will pitch in game three and Scott Carroll will get the game four call if necessary. A game five starter has not yet been determined...After a 2-for-3 performance last night with a double, triple and a walk, Bryce Brentz is now batting .471 in the playoffs. Outfield mate J.C. Linares is at .438 after a 2-for-4 night which included his second home run of the postseason...Nelson Figueroa, Pawtucket's game three starter, left McCoy Stadium prior to tonight's game and will depart for Charlotte in advance of the team...The PawSox are 3-0 at home in the postseason after last night's victory. They have outscored their opponents 27-13 in their five playoff games thus far and their pitching is holding opposing batters to a .181 batting average...In game one of the Pacific Coast League Championship Series last night, the Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) handily defeated the defending champion Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals), 13-1. The PCL champ will play the IL champ in the one-game Triple-A National Championship next Tuesday, September 18th in Durham, North Carolina...This will be the final game played at McCoy Stadium this season. It will be seven months before the Triple-A Red Sox return to Pawtucket when they face the Rochester Red Wings on April 11th in their 2013 home opener.
