The IronPigs lost a pitchers duel on Sunday, falling 2-0 at first place Pawtucket.

Ethan Martin was brilliant once again on the mound for the 'Pigs.

Martin earned a no-decision after throwing six shutout innings with eight strikeouts.


But Paw Sox knuckleballer Steven Wright was even better.

Wright pitched a complete game, four-hit shutout, striking out seven along the way.

Cesar Jimenez (4-2, 3.27) took the loss after surrendering the game's only runs in the eighth inning.

The IronPigs (54-55) fall to 4 1/2 games behind Pawtucket in the North Division.

The 'Pigs and Paw Sox will wrap up their series Monday night at 7:05pm.
