PAWTUCKET â€” The newest member of the Pawtucket Red Sox played a major role in snapping the teamâ€™s third-longest losing streak in club history on Wednesday night at McCoy Stadium.
Starting pitcher Zach Stewart, who was acquired by the Boston Red Sox in Sundayâ€™s trade with the Chicago White Sox for Kevin Youkilis, turned in a splendid outing to help the PawSox defeat the Charlotte Knights, 5-1, and grab their first victory after nine straight losses.
PAWTUCKET â€” Mauro Gomez earned a spot on the International League all-star team last season, the third straight year he earned a midseason honor.
Ryan Lavarnway was a Carolina League all-star in 2010, and Pedro Ciriaco picked up his last minor-league all-star honor three years ago in the Southern League.
That being said, when was the last time Justin Germano, the fourth member of the Pawtucket Red Sox named to the I.L.â€™s all-star team early Wednesday afternoon, selected to a squad?

PAWTUCKET â€” Staffing reductions in several municipal departments could occasionally result in some slower response times or limitations on city services, announced Mayor Donald Grebien.
The mayor said that several recent retirements, including those of some longtime department heads and clerks in the City Clerk's office, coupled with the need for the administration to keep a tight rein on expenses are the primary reasons for the staffing shortage. It is also the season when employees are taking more vacations, which is compounding the problem of some departments being left short-handed.
