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 veteran Pawtucket Red Sox starting pitcher handcuffed the Durham Bulls to seven hits in 6 2/3 innings of work and his teammates did all their offensive damage in the fourth inning to grab a 3-2 triumph at McCoy Stadium.
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.

Randall wasn’t able to advance to today’s quarterfinal matches, but the recent Cumberland High grad gave two-time champion Brad Valois all he could handle during match play of the Round of 16 at the Potowomut Country Club.

Crawford will start in left on both nights when the PawSox host the Durham Bulls, and if all goes well this weekend, he is expected to be back in the Red Sox’s lineup on Monday when they head to Baltimore to face the Orioles.
