WEB ONLY: Diaz' hit enables PawSox to top Chiefs in 12 innings

May 31, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Fresh off a 5-3 road trip that saw them take over first place in the North Division, the Pawtucket Red Sox kept the good times rolling Friday night.
It may have taken some time, yet Pawtucket was able to outlast Syracuse courtesy of a 9-8 contest that took 12 innings and lasted four hours, 20 minutes. The hero was Jonathan Diaz, who blooped a ball into shallow right-center to score Justin Henry with one down in the 12th.
Diaz’ third base hit of the game went in the books as a double. Ryan Rowland-Smith picked up his third victory after tossing a scoreless top-of-the 12th.

Spread-out playoff schedule pleases local baseball playoff teams

May 31, 2013

For a change of pace, the R.I. high school baseball playoffs are neither rushed nor condensed.
The 16-team field in Division I and II takes center stage Saturday, with the first game of the double-elimination regional qualifying round. In years past, a loss on Day 1 placed players and coaches squarely behind the eight ball. Teams were forced to start their battle for survival in the losers’ bracket the very next day, a predicament that wreaked havoc with pitching plans and left no opportunity for coaches to address any other issues.

Softball Mount sends shockwaves, upsets Clippers

May 30, 2013

CUMBERLAND — Next year is supposed to be the season Mount St. Charles storms through the first round of the Division I playoffs and gets ready to make some noise in the double-elimination portion of the state tournament.
But somebody forgot to fax that memo to this year’s Mounties.
Armed by a 15-hit attack, solid defense, and a rare complete game from junior Kylie Finnerty, the 13th-seeded, senior-less Mounties sprung arguably the upset of the postseason on Thursday afternoon with a stunning 7-2 triumph over fourth-seeded Cumberland at Tucker Field.

Softball Lions able to fend off Eagles, 3-0

May 30, 2013

LINCOLN – The more things change for the Lincoln High softball team, the more they stay the same.
Gone are the days when head coach Dick Ryan can sit back and watch his squad pile up the runs and achieve mercy-rule status in the blink of an eye. This year’s Lincoln edition is conditioned to win low-scoring, fist-clenching affairs that largely hinge on the effectiveness of Lindsay Mayer and her powerful right arm.
