PAWTUCKET â€” The good news coming out of McCoy Stadium on Thursday afternoon was that rehabbing Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who had struggled at the plate in his first five games with the Pawtucket Red Sox, smacked a home run leading off the sixth inning of the PawSoxâ€™s game against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
But aside from that, and a four-run rally in that inning by the PawSox that tied the contest at 5-5, there wasnâ€™t much else to smile about on the homefront.

WOONSOCKET â€” Fire Chief Gary Lataille says heâ€™s not looking to hire new firefighters, but is merely doing something he does every two years â€“ conduct an open application process for eligible firefighters to be included on a new certified hiring list that goes into effect June 7.
â€śThe Woonsocket Fire Department is not hiring,â€ť says Lataille, who has been fielding calls from people apparently confused about the open application process. â€śThis is something we do every two years.â€ť
