No, they did not win tonight, but Toledo lost and that was good enough.
The Yankees won. Pawtucket is now 3.5 games behind in the division, so it looks like hot wild card action.
The radio guys (Hoard, Hyder) tried to get some player reaction from the clubhouse in Rochester but it was far too zany. You could hear howls of ecstasy... I don't know, it sounded really wild. Dan Hoard took a moment to reflect on the players who'd contributed to the PawSox's success but were no longer on the team (or were in Boston). He mentioned Bailey and Pauley, the Mighty Gronkiewicz, Jed Lowrie and Brandon Moss. He even mentioned the disastrous Chad Spann.
He omitted Craig Hansen. I'm sure it was a mere oversight.
In a related story, Dan Hoard is kind of hot. Is that weird? Yeah. It's really weird.
Congratulations to the PawSox kidz and to manager Ron Johnson and to the entire organization.
JOE!!! TAKE US TO THE PLAYOFFS!!
