The Pawsox overcame another early deficit to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

The Yankees jumped out to an early 2-0 in the second inning, and held the lead until the Red Sox scored a run in the bottom of the 5th by way of a Bryce Brentz RBI single. Brentz added another RBI single, this time in the 7th to tie the game 2-2. Jonathan Hee followed with a single to left which scored Brentz due to a throwing error by Scranton's right fielder, Cole Garner. That's all the Sox needed. For the second straight night, the bullpen did a fantastic job in relief and pitched scoreless ball.

The Pawsox will have a chance to win the series in tomorrow night as the series moves to Rochester. In case you were wondering and rather than you lose sleep trying to figure out why the series is moving to Rochester, I'll explain. Due to stadium construction in Scranton, the Yankees will be playing their playoff home games in Rochester.
