WooSox Drop Sixth Straight Game

By Stephen Ur

The Worcester Red Sox hosted the Columbus Clippers in the fourth game of their six-game series at Polar Park in Worcester, MA. The WooSox dropped the first three games against the Clippers, including a 16-1 loss on Thursday.

Worcester got on the board first in the bottom of the first inning when David Hamilton scored on a Niko Goodrum single. As it had been the entire series up to that point, it was Columbus the rest of the way.

They would tie the game and took the lead for good in the top of the third inning. Home runs from Micah Pries and David Fry in the top of the sixth made it 4-1 in favor of Columbus.

They would add on four more in the top of the eighth then close it out in the end for the 8-1 victory. The loss for Worcester is the fifth consecutive since a 5-1 start.

Paxton, pitching on rehab assignment for the Red Sox, pitched 3.1 innings, allowing four hits and two earned runs while striking out six.

“I think I need another game or two to tighten things up,” Paxton said on what he feels should be next for him in his rehab. “It’s been a long time since I’ve completed.”

They will look to bounce back as they begin a weekend series against Columbus starting tomorrow. First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET.
