PAWTUCKET --- As good as Brandon Workman was on Wednesday night â and he was very good â 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 Hensâ bullpen kept the PawSox off the board the rest of the way in securing a 4-0 victory at McCoy Stadium.
WOONSOCKET â A man police have been looking for since New Yearâs Day in connection with a brutal robbery and assault was captured on Monday.

The victim, a 24-year-old man, told police he was a complete stranger to the men who attacked him.

ATTLEBORO â If not for Abigail McNultyâs 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: âFather Knows Best.â Tom McNulty certainly fits the bill after parlaying a strong tennis career at Feehan into a scholarship to Providence College.
CUMBERLAND â 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 âPink Outâ contest at Tucker Field on Tuesday afternoon.
When Clippersâ 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.
PAWTUCKET â 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 Pawtucketâs bullpen. Entering Tuesdayâs 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.
