Matchup: Durham Bulls vs. Pawtucket Red Sox

The Pawtucket Red Sox are the Triple-A team of the Boston Red Sox. In past years these have often been terrific, and very important, games for both teams. Doesn't look like it will work out that way this season, but maybe.

The PawSox are in 5th place in the six-team North Division of the IL, 9 games out of first place. They lead the Bulls in key hitting and pitching categories. They seem to be an impatient crew, drawing the fewest bases-on-balls of any team in the league. On the other hand, they don't strike out nearly as much as the Bulls. Pawsox hitters have only struck out 602 times this year. Bulls have struck out 760 times and lead the league in that category.
