Workman, PawSox done in by long ball

May 7, 2014

PAWTUCKET --- As good as Brandon Workman was on Wednesday night – and he was very good – his counterpart was just a tad bit better.

Toledo Mud Hens starter Kyle Lobstein delivered his best outing of the year, limiting the Pawtucket Red Sox to four hits and a free pass in 6 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Hens’ bullpen kept the PawSox off the board the rest of the way in securing a 4-0 victory at McCoy Stadium.

Cumberland's McNulty’s distance running takes her from Bishop Feehan to Stanford

May 7, 2014

ATTLEBORO – If not for Abigail McNulty’s father pushing her in the direction of high-school running, there is no story about how this Cumberland native and Bishop Feehan senior blossomed into a long-distance ace that will be Stanford-bound this September.

To borrow from a popular television series: “Father Knows Best.” Tom McNulty certainly fits the bill after parlaying a strong tennis career at Feehan into a scholarship to Providence College.

Mount tops Cumberland in "Pink Out" softball game

May 6, 2014

CUMBERLAND — In an outstanding display of sportsmanship and community concern, especially for those who have suffered from cancer, Cumberland High and Mount St. Charles conducted a “Pink Out” contest at Tucker Field on Tuesday afternoon.
When Clippers’ skipper Marty Crowley opened his heart and invited MSC veteran mentor Cliff Matthews to partake in such a fundraiser last month, the latter jumped at the chance.
The coaches produced an emotional yet fun-loving ceremony prior to the Division I tilt, and five cancer survivors took part in the event.

Wilson's been thumbs-up in PawSox's bullpen

May 6, 2014

PAWTUCKET — The Alex Wilson who posted a 10.80 ERA in four Grapefruit League outings is a distant memory.

In his place is a reliever who has been a rock solid contributor at the backend of Pawtucket’s bullpen. Entering Tuesday’s game against Toledo, the right-hander has posted a microscopic 0.71 ERA in 12.1 innings. International League foes are hitting a paltry .143 against Wilson, who is averaging 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings.
