It’s 72 degrees and partly cloudy here in Moosic, PA and according to the national weather service, there is only a 5 % chance of rain this evening.
That’s right, Monday’s doubleheader between Pawtucket and Scranton/WB is a go, as the field has been deemed playable at PNC Field.
Game one begins at 5:35 with Michael Bowden on the mound for Pawtucket. Charlie Zink will go in game two.
As I mentioned in a previous post, Jed Lowrie is no longer with the PawSox. Fearing the possibility of another postponement at Scranton/WB, Lowrie was transferred to Portland and is expected to be in the Sea Dogs starting lineup tonight.
However, I have good news for PawSox fans. It appears likely that Jed will return to Pawtucket on Thursday when the PawSox open a homestand against Buffalo.
“I think we’ll probably see him when we get back to Pawtucket,” manager Ron Johnson told me. “He went down to Portland because we had to make sure he could get some at-bats in. He’s feeling really good right now. He got all of his work in here – he’s been running, throwing, and he’s ready to go. He just needs to play.”
I hope you’ll join us for the radio call tonight beginning with the pregame show at 5:20 on the PawSox radio network and PawSox.com.
