Jason Pleau enters guilty plea

July 31, 2013

PROVIDENCE — The man at the center of a capital punishment battle between the state and federal governments on Wednesday changed his plea to guilty to avoid the death penalty.
Jason Pleau pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Providence to robbery, conspiracy and using a firearm in a crime of violence in the September 2010 killing of David Main, a Woonsocket gas station manager shot to death as he was walking into the Citizens Bank branch at 1675 Diamond Hill Road to deposit the Diamond Hill and Mendon Road Shell station's weekend receipts.

Navigant Post 85 receives forfeit win, spot in tonight’s winners’ bracket final

July 31, 2013

WEST WARWICK — To the perhaps three dozen fans on hand, it was a truly bizarre closing to a long day at McCarthy Field.
Those stragglers ended up going home early after Rhode Island American Legion Senior Division Commissioner Jim Foster ruled that Navigant Post 85’s opponent, East Bay/Riverside Post 10, had used an ineligible player during Wednesday night’s winners’ bracket semifinal of the state tourney.

WEST WARWICK — Upper Deck Post 86/14 was only looking for some insurance runs while holding a 4-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning on Wednesday night.
Yet when it was all said and done, one walk and one error by R&R Construction opened the floodgates for a big rally and a comfortable 9-3 win in the winner’s bracket semifinals of the American Legion “Final Eight” Tournament at McCarthy Field.
R&R ace pitcher Eddie Hole was working with authority through seven innings, allowing just two hits since the first inning. That was, until the eighth.

Middlebrooks is ejected in PawSox's loss to Tides

July 31, 2013

PAWTUCKET – It was apparent that Will Middlebrooks was not a happy camper.
On the same day that saw the Red Sox bring up Brock Holt to fill the infield void that was created in the wake of Jose Iglesias’ departure, Middlebrooks expressed his displeasure in a loud and boisterous way after striking out to end the third inning of Pawtucket’s 3-0 loss to Norfolk on matinee Wednesday at McCoy Stadium.

Left side of infield starts to come into focus for Red Sox

July 31, 2013

PAWTUCKET – In economic terms, the Red Sox were sitting on a surplus of shortstops and third basemen. As the Jake Peavy trade demonstrated, the organization was comfortable with putting that surplus to good use.
The parent club was not going to field a team that included Jose Iglesias, Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and Garin Cecchini on the same roster at the same time. And as Iglesias is a free agent at the end of the season, the Red Sox were able to sidestep a potential off-season topic by trading away the one-time perceived starting shortstop of the future to Detroit.
