DURHAM, N.C. â€“ For a team that has enjoyed a champagne bath or two in recent weeks, this was not the ending the Pawtucket Red Sox had in mind.
The International League champion PawSox felt the sting of the Pacific Coast Leagueâ€™s best Tuesday night as Reno romped to the Triple-A National Championship, 10-3, at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Aces jumped all over PawSox starter Nelson Figueroa as the playoff hero was knocked out after just two innings.
DURHAM, N.C. â€“ If thereâ€™s anyone who can relate to the coming-out-of-nowhere playoff run that the Pawtucket Red Sox have enjoyed, itâ€™s Rick Burleson.
A former Red Sox and PawSox shortstop, Burleson is presently the hitting coach for the Reno Aces. The 61-year-oldâ€™s presence in the Eastern Time Zone this week conjures up memories pertaining to Pawtucketâ€™s first Governorsâ€™ Cup-producing club in 1973. More than eager to take a stroll down memory lane, Burleson says the â€™73 PawSox possessed future major-league contributors by the bushel.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ A long percolating dispute between the school administration and the North Smithfield Teachers Association (NSTA) boiled over on Monday when the teachers voted down a proposed contract agreement and also issued a vote of no confidence in School Supt. Stephen Lindberg.
