Pawtucket had to use 6 pitchers to stop the bleeding that Nelson Figueroa caused in the first 2 innings. Figueroa was hot during the playoffs until last night when he gave up 6 runs (all earned), on 7 hits and lasted only 2 innings. Chris Hernandez and Brock Huntzinger didn't help at all, as they combined for 3 innings, 4 hits, 4 runs, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Alex Wilson, Jose De La torre, and Tony Pena Jr. closed out the game with score-less ball, but it was too late.

The Pawsox had plenty of chances against Reno's top prospect, Trevor Bauer, but clearly failed to capitalize. Bauer walked 7 batters over 4 2/3 , and the Pawsox couldn't do a damn thing. Pawtucket went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left a total of 15 runners on base. Tony Thomas hit a solo homer in the fifth for one of Pawtucket's very few highlights.

I still don't understand why the AAA Championship is a 1 game, winner-take-all. Both teams had to play best-of-fives to get there, why not make it at least a best-of-3? Sure, it is late in September, but a single game elimation is too little league for me. At least they have the Governors' Cup, even though most people don't know it exists.

Stats after jump.
