PawSox edge Durham behind Duckworth

July 14, 2011

PAWTUCKET -- Brandon Duckworth’s frustrating two-month stretch without a victory came to a merciful end on Thursday night.

The victory was the fourth in a row and the eighth in the last 10 teams for the surging PawSox, who are now a season-high 10 games over .500 (51-41) and tied for the International League wild card lead with the Gwinnett Braves.
