“I’m probably going to go home sick tonight,” Frodio says over his second bowl of pasta and sausage.

The move to make sure that Pawtucket’s Game 3 starter was well rested paid off handsomely. Wright’s knuckleball baffled the Rochester hitters to the tune of 6.1 scoreless innings as the PawSox downed the Red Wings, 5-1, before 4,681 enthusiastic and supportive fans Friday night at McCoy Stadium.

Perhaps the most tense tilt for the crowds attending this R.I. Injury Fund quadruple-header came in the form of Shea's 7-0 victory over Woonsocket, that a battle of usual Division II mainstays. The most entertaining contest, however, was the third, a free-for-all between D-I's East Providence and D-II's St. Raphael Academy.
