PAWTUCKET â€” Perhaps the only good news coming out of McCoy Stadium on Tuesday night was this: Catcher Ryan Lavarnway extended his consecutive-game hit streak to eight with a bloop single to left in the fifth.
After that? There wasnâ€™t much for the 6,009 in attendance to get excited about, as the Pawtucket Red Sox dropped a dismal 8-0 decision to the Charlotte Knights.
In the process, Pawtucketâ€™s losing streak increased to nine straight games, and itâ€™s now dangerously close to eclipsing its second-longest skid in club history; that came between Aug. 12-20, 2009.
PAWTUCKET â€” New PawSox acquisition Zach Stewart admitted the last 48 hours have been a whirlwind of emotion.
After discovering he and Chicago White Sox teammate Brent Lillibridge had been traded for Boston third baseman/first baseman Kevin Youkilis on Saturday night, he took care of some family business, and didnâ€™t arrive at his new McCoy Stadium digs.
He didnâ€™t arrive at the park until about 4:30 p.m., met with manager Arnie Beyeler and pitching coach Rich Sauveur, exchanged pleasantries with some teammates and walked out onto the turf for some stretching and long tosses.
