Season comes to a close as Pawtucket gets swept away by Lehigh Valley


9/11 Cup of Coffee: The 2011 season officially came to a close on Saturday evening as Pawtucket was swept out of the playoffs.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs (PHI) completed a three game sweep of the PawSox, eliminating Pawtucket with a 3-1 victory. Alex Wilson received the loss despite a solid 7.0 innings of work, allowing 3 runs on 3 hit and 1 walk while striking out 6. Trevor Miller added 2.0 inning of flawless relief, striking out 2. Pawtucket struggled mightily all night on offense, receiving its only run of the contest on a Will Middlebrooks sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth. The PawSox were 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position and left 8 men on base. The loss officially closes the book on the 2011 minor league season for the Red Sox affiliates. Look for the Cup of Coffee to return during Arizona Fall League action in early October.
