PAWTUCKET â Bring on the IronPigs!
The playoff-bound Pawtucket Red Sox completed their regular season quietly on Monday afternoon, finishing 20 games above .500 at 81-61 after rolling to a 7-3 win over Rochester.
The PawSox will begin a best-of-five playoff series Wednesday night at Lehigh Valleyâs field in Allentown, Pa. against an IronPigs team that lost 10 of 16 games to Pawtucket during the regular season. Lehigh Valley nailed down the wild-card with a 4-1 rain-shortened win over Syracuse on Monday.

âI was definitely thinking of Ben,â Tamburro admitted on Monday. âI know heâs somewhere up there celebrating.â
