Allentown, PA - The IronPigs woes continued Thursday night. Ethan Martin would take over for Sean O'Sullivan on the mound as Wednesday night's suspended game against Pawtucket would resume. Pawtucket added a run to their 3-2 lead on a sac fly in the 5th, then the wheels came off in the 8th, as Matt Spring smoked a two-run double off Jeremy Horst. Mookie Betts would add an rbi single, as Pawtucket went on to take Game 1, 7-2. In the night cap, things didn't get any better, eventhough the IronPigs wore their Michael Jackson tribute jerseys. Tyler Henson's rbi double in the 4th would account for Lehigh Valley's lone run of the night. Pawtucket's Ryan Roberts went 3 for 4 with 3 rbi and a run scored. The Red Sox take Game 2, 5-1. The IronPigs now have lost 5 straight. They travel to Buffalo for a four game set with the Bisons beginning Friday night.
