Game time: 7:15 p.m

Notes: Starting pitcher Nelson Figueroa, like much of his PawSox teammates, has caught fire at the right time. After breezing through his last two regular season starts, the 38-year-old won game four of the first round against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by tossing eight inning of two-hit ball where he allowed only one run. Figueroa was spotted leaving McCoy Stadium prior to last night’s game, so that he could fly down to Charlotte yesterday as the rest of the team did not arrive until this morning…The PawSox are 5-1 in the postseason and won all four games that they played at McCoy. As a team they have 46 hits in the playoffs, 21 of which went for extra-bases, included ten home runs. The PawSox have only committed three errors in their six postseason games…The latest into any season that Pawtucket has played is September 15th, which occured in 1977 when they lost to Charleston in the Governors' Cup series...The Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) evened up the Pacific Coast League Championship series with a 9-6 win over the Reno Aces (Diamondbacks) on Wednesday night. The PCL champ will play the IL champ in the one-game Triple-A National Championship next Tuesday, September 18th in Durham, North Carolina.

There will no live blog tonight, but check out the Red Sox-Yankees live game blog at Extra Bases as I will be sure to give continuous updates on the PawSox game as well.
