After Mike Lowell treated his Pawtucket teammates to a $750 tab at Outback on Friday, he had a pair of hits in eight at bats during a two-game set against the Bisons. Nothing spectacular, but it was interesting to watch Lowell take swings in the cages beneath Dunn Tire Park. A certain zing comes off the bat of a guy who’s got World Series MVP in his credentials. He spoke with us Western New York scribes for a few minutes after the BP session on Saturday and explained the thumb guard he’s wearing.
“I think the original design came from the Bruins,” Lowell said. “There’s is a little more of a contact sport than ours.”
Lowell insists he’ll be ready and rarin’ come Tuesday as the BoSox return to action against the slumping Toronto Blue Jays.
BTW, the Bisons finally put a two-game series together, sweeping the PawSox.
