A clean and effortless sixth inning was what Albers delivered as the Pawtucket Red Sox cooked up two wins at McCoy Stadium. Daniel Nava capped off the suspended portion of the proceedings with a game-winning single in the 10th inning, lifting the PawSox to a 2-1 win past Buffalo.
Albersâ€™ 1-2-3 frame came in the regularly scheduled contest as Pawtucketâ€™s offense came alive in a 10-6 victory.
