PAWTUCKET â€” Augusto Rojas and the Pawtucket Red Sox got everything they could ask for and more from their inaugural PawSox 5K Race/Walk at McCoy Stadium.
A sunny morning. A strong turnout. Plenty of positive feedback.
And a fantastic finish for first place.
In a thrilling conclusion that had the fans scattered along the stadiumâ€™s lower box seats cheering wildly, Geoff Nelson survived a frantic sprint with Nathan Petesch around the warning track by nipping him at the finish line near the PawSoxâ€™s dugout by less than a second.
