The Pawsox took a 1-0 lead over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in the 1st round of the IL playoffs.

Scranton jumped out to a 4-0 lead by the 3rd before the Pawsox started their comeback. Pawtucket grabbed 3 runs in the bottom of the 3rd by way of a J.C. Linares 2-run homer and a solo homer from Andy LaRoche. LaRoche drove in another 2 runs in the 5th to give the Pawsox the 5-4 lead and they didn't look back. Bryce Brentz added a 2-run homer in the 8th to cap off the scoring and give the Pawtucket the 7-4 victory in game 1.

Zach Stewart went 5 innings, giving up all 4 runs on 7 hits, walked 2 and struck out only 1. I would say that is an improvement since the last time we saw him. The bullpen did a great job containing the Yankees by combining for only 2 hits and 7 strikeouts over the final 4 innings.

Game 2 is tonight at 7:05 in Pawtucket. Get your tickets here.
