Sox Are Champions! (AAA PawSox, That Is)

(Jeff Siner—Charlotte Observer)
Hey, we need some good news in this dismal year. The Red Sox AAA affiliate won the International League Title last night with a 4-1 victory over the Charlotte Knights. The PawSox will now face either the PCL's Reno or Omaha for the overall AAA title. PawSox hurler Nelson Figueroa pitched six solid innings in the win—while three relievers (Will Inman, Jose de la Torre, Josh Fields) hurled hitless innings to seal the victory.
