A strong PawSox team is ready to take on the Charlotte Knights starting tonight. The PawSox aren't planning on any major changes for the upcoming series tonight.
After being on the road against Louisville, Indianapolis, and the home series against Syracuse, the PawSox have won eight out of their last ten games. The PawSox are having a successful 2013 season. Manager Gary DiSarcina said he doesn’t believe in making any drastic changes preparing for Charlotte.
The City of Pawtucket is stepping up efforts to combat a rat problem. The city gets ten to 15 complaints a week about the rodents.
The City of Pawtucket has set out 85 rat bait stations. But unlike previous years, where they might have gone unchecked for up to two months, they’re now being checked, and re-baited if necessary, every two weeks. Shawn Logue, the city’s Code Enforcement Director, said the rat problem is most prevalent in two neighborhoods.
The PawSox are away to take on the Gwinnett Braves for the next three of a four game series on the road in Georgia. Monday’s 5 -1 win was the ninth loss in a row for the Gwinnett Braves. Pawsox spokesman Bill Wanless said this gives the PawSox a boost for tonight’s game against the Braves.
“First up we got to take care of business down in Georgia tonight and then in Charlotte over the weekend before we come home,” said Wanless.
The PawSox return next week to face the Braves at McCoy stadium.
Flip through catalogs for J.C. Penney, Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn and you could see a braided rug for sale. You might assume that rug was made overseas, but there’s a good chance it was made in Pawtucket. As part of our on-going series, Made in Rhode Island, Catherine Welch visited Colonial Mills where thousands of braided rugs are shipped out of Pawtucket to major chain stores across the country.
