Post 14 in legion state finals on Sunday

July 30, 2011

WEST WARWICK – Joe Yankee wasn’t even sure he’d be able to pitch on Saturday. Hurd Auto Mall certainly wishes he hadn’t.
With Cumberland Post 14 fighting to stay alive in the American Legion Senior Division state tournament, its ace left-hander overcame back and shoulder discomfort to toss a complete-game three-hitter that headlined his team’s 2-0 win at sun-splashed McCarthy Stadium.
It was quite an afternoon for the Lincoln High School rising senior, who celebrated his birthday by striking out eight batters and not allowing a runner past second base.

Re-opening of Wilbur Road bridge a matter of safety

July 30, 2011

LINCOLN – Perhaps nobody is more elated with the re-opening of the Wilbur Road bridge, which spans over Route 146, than employees of the Lime Rock Fire Department.
Both the police and fire departments in town had received word from R.I. Department of Transportation officials on Wednesday morning that the bridge would be ready to take on traffic that afternoon.

Fresh produce hard to come by in city's 'food deserts'

July 30, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Keyondra Davis doesn't kid herself about the kind of food they put on the shelves at the pharmacy near her home in Cumberland Village.
A lot is just overpriced junk food, says Davis. Still, as much as she dislikes it, she knows she's usually going to end up at the store when her two-year-old son Jayden's stomach starts to growl.
She doesn't have much choice.
She lives in a food desert.

Web Only: Collette falls to Gershkoff/Auburn Post 20

July 29, 2011

WEST WARWICK – Like many American Legion coaches, Collette Vacations boss Ray Ventura was probably hoping that Jeff Diehl was going turn pro after getting drafted by the New York Mets in June.
You could see why Friday night as Diehl single-handily almost won the game for Gershkoff/Auburn Post 20, the catcher belting two home runs in a 6-4 win over Collette in the winners’ bracket final of the American Legion Senior Division playoffs.

Nasuti hopeful Woonsocket sports will remain intact

July 29, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Woonsocket High School athletic director George Nasuti is guardedly optimistic that his interscholastic sports program will continue to enjoy the success, and occasional state championships, that the Villa Novans have accrued in recent years.

Post 14 still alive

July 29, 2011

WEST WARWICK – Instead of dwelling on Thursday’s loss to Collette Vacations Post 79, the boys from Cumberland Post 14 answered the challenge of keeping its season alive.
Top-seeded Post 14 lives to fight another day thanks to eight standout innings from knuckleball artist Zach Perry and key hits from Tyler Santaniello and Nick Zammarelli. Almost forgotten in the aftermath of Friday’s 5-2 win against defending champion New England Frozen Lemonade/Shields Post 43 was the spectacular – some may argue season-saving – catch Matt Sorkin made in center field to end the top of the first inning.

McGair: Putting the trade deadline in perspective

July 28, 2011

The fourth week in July means the following:
1). The bombardment of back-to-school commercials, serving as a cruel reality check and a reminder that summer reading will not be accomplished through osmosis or CliffsNotes.
2). There’s roughly a month remaining in the minor league season. Where does the time go?
3). Another fast-moving July 31 trading deadline is just days away from building toward a crescendo.

Collette Vacations bests top seed Post 14

July 28, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — It’s been quite some time since Collette Vacations Post 79 enjoyed a nine-game win streak or found itself two wins away from a state championship, but that’s the state of the Pawtucket ballclub heading into tonight’s 8 p.m. winners’ bracket final at McCarthy Stadium.
Eric Geisman gave a splendid performance on the mound and Post 79 did just enough offensively to help produce a 4-1 victory over Cumberland Post 14 on Thursday night in their semifinal-round game at Pierce Field.

July 28, 2011

Roland Lavallee has never veered away from his dream of qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in January.
But for the last nine months, the former Mount St. Charles standout has certainly been tested with a series of personal and physical setbacks.
