PAWTUCKET â€” The Pawtucket Red Sox are in a pennant race.
Just donâ€™t mention it to PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler.
â€śI get excited about all of our wins,â€ť Beyeler said Wednesday after his PawSox moved to within one game of International League North division leader Lehigh Valley with a 2-1 walkoff victory, their third win in as many games with the IronPigs this week.
Pawtucket can move into a tie for first place with a win over Lehigh Valley in tonightâ€™s series finale.
PAWTUCKET â€” Kevin Millwood isnâ€™t much different than the average working man who is nearing the end of his professional career.
The 36-year-old veteran of 14 big league seasons is proud of his accomplishments (159 wins, third in the 1999 National League Cy Young voting) and determined to go out on his own terms, pitching baseballs on hot summer days in the minor leagues, waiting for one last call to the big leagues.
