PAWTUCKET â€“ The anatomy of a young hitter adjusting to a new minor league level has been on full display lately.
In the case of outfield prospect Bryce Brentz, the hot streak he carries into the Governorsâ€™ Cup finals represents a complete 180 from where he stood following a handful of Triple-A games.
PAWTUCKET â€“ The scouting report provided by Pawtucket Red Sox catcher Dan Butler revealed just how on knuckleball pitcher Steven Wright was on Tuesday night.
â€śIt was all over the place and just so unpredictable,â€ť said Butler after Pawtucket took Game One of the Governorsâ€™ Cup finals against Charlotte by a 7-2 count. â€śI couldnâ€™t catch it and they (meaning the Knight batters) couldnâ€™t hit it. I donâ€™t know if (Wright) knew where it was going, but it was a pretty special pitch tonight.â€ť
