PAWTUCKET -- Alex Hassan opened the season a dismal 0-for-17 at the plate before he broke out of the slump with a 3-for-4 outing at Rochester on April 13.
Slow but sure, his confidence increased, and that was more than obvious on Sunday afternoon.
Hassan finished 3-for-3 with a double, homer, sacrifice fly, two RBI and three runs scored to pace the Pawtucket Red Soxâ€™ 5-4 come-from-behind triumph over the Clippers before 5,516 fans at McCoy Stadium.
PAWTUCKET -- The way Lars Anderson figures it, versatility is the key to getting back to the Boston Red Sox.
Thatâ€™s why the Pawtucket Red Sox first baseman called Mike Hazen, now Bostonâ€™s Vice President and Assistant General Manager, last November and asked that he be considered for an outfield position.
Given Adrian Gonzalezâ€™ contract with Boston, he figured, â€śWhy not?
â€śHe told me he thought it was a good idea, and that he would talk to the powers-that-be,â€ť Anderson, 24, said in the clubhouse prior to Pawtucketâ€™s tilt against the Columbus Clippers on Sunday morning.
