Cumberland American blanked, 2-0

August 20, 2011

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Following Friday’s opening Little League World Series loss, Cumberland American manager Dave Belisle promised his team would play better Saturday against home-town favorite Clinton County, Pa.
He was right. But it was not enough to save Cumberland’s historic season.
Christopher Wright pitched 4 2/3 brilliant innings of six-hit baseball and repeatedly threw well under pressure Saturday night at Lamade Stadium, but Pennsylvania pitcher Alex Garbrick and Tyler McCloskey stymied Cumberland, combining on a three-hit as Cumberland lost, 2-0.

Andre Carter: Best 'new' Patriot?

August 20, 2011

When the wave of transactions swept through Gillette Stadium at the start of training camp, two names expectedly stood out among the rest.
Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco.
The former, no stranger to controversy on and off the field, has not practiced since Aug. 4 because of an undisclosed injury. The latter, his first-quarter touchdown in the Patriots’ 31-14 preseason win over the Buccaneers on Thursday notwithstanding, continues to build a rapport with Tom Brady.
I foresee another New England newcomer having a more immediate impact than both Haynesworth and Ochocinco.

Potential RIPTA cuts drawing stronger protests

August 20, 2011

PROVIDENCE — As decision day looms for RIPTA, the state’s public transit authority, to implement massive service cuts that would eliminate at least part of 39 of its 54 bus routes, protests are escalating in from riders and public officials alike.
Pawtucket is one of the hardest hit areas, with several routes reduced or eliminated altogether, and Burrillville and Glocester residents face losing an important transportation link to the central part of the state, many of whom use it to get back and forth from work or school.

August 20, 2011

Cumberland American roughed up in LLWS opener

August 19, 2011

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — The Cumberland American Little League all-stars have made comebacks a summer-long staple.
Now they hope to stage their best comeback yet.
Braydon Salzman, Nick Pratto and Ryo Takada combined on a three-hit shutout and the offense produced up and down the lineup as California blanked Cumberland, 11-0 Friday at Lamade Stadium in Cumberland’s Little League World Series debut. The West champions, unbeaten this summer, move into Sunday’s winner bracket to meet either Clinton County, Pa. or La Grange, Ken.

Middlebrooks brings potent stick to PawSox

August 19, 2011

PAWTUCKET — The PawSox locker room has looked like a bus station this week, with players coming down I-95 from Portland or heading to Boston.
Friday’s transit report led with the news of third baseman Will Middlebrooks’s promotion to Pawtucket from Portland. Middlebrooks effectively replaces Ryan Lavarnway, who joined Boston’s lineup on Thursday.

August 19, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox keep finding ways to win games, even as their 24-man playing roster is adjusted seemingly every day according to the organizational needs.
On Friday night, Pawtucket gained a split of its four-game series with Columbus as new addition Greg Smith hurled one-run baseball over seven innings during a 7-1 victory. Smith had been released by Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last week after compiling a 3-3 mark in 13 games for the Yankees.
