Charlotte won the season series, 3-5...The last two times Pawtucket appeared in the International League Championship Series (1991 and 2003) they were swept by the Durham Bulls, three games to none. Their last win in the Governor's Cup series came back in 1984 when they won it all...Bryce Brentz has six hits in the postseason including two home runs and a double...Pawtucket's pitching rotation for the remainder of the series - Game 2: Zach Stewart, Game 3: Nelson Figueroa, Game 4 (in necessary): Chris Hernandez, Game 5 (if necessary): Billy Buckner.
