Lincoln Little League improves to 2-0 in New England regionals

August 4, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. — Thankfully for Lincoln Little League, Brandon Lee is just one player.

The No. 3 hitter in Newton South East’s lineup certainly did some damage Sunday, slugging two home runs with four RBI and two runs scored. Collectively, Lincoln was able to overcome the Herculean effort and knock off the Massachusetts representative. 14-8, in the second game round-robin play of the Little League New England Regional Tournament.

Both squads ended up spraying the ball all over Leon J. Breen Field, tallying 22 runs and 25 hits, including 10 extra base hits.

PAWTUCKET — Sometimes the trades that a major-league ballclub doesn’t end up making can prove quite revealing.

The Jake Peavy acquisition was not the only smoke signal sent out by the Red Sox at the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline. Last Wednesday’s 4 p.m Eastern Time deadline did not feature the acquisition of a warm body for the sole purpose of augmenting the bullpen core that manager John Farrell presently has at his disposal.

CUMBERLAND – It’s mid-summer and the town-owned Metcalf-Franklin Farm on Abbott Run Valley Road in Cumberland has already harvested 10,000 pounds of vegetables and is well on its way towards an anticipated annual yield of 34,000 pounds by the end of the growing season.

And every ounce of it goes to nearly a dozen food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency food centers from Woonsocket to Pawtucket to Central Falls.
