Cecchini's grand slam powers PawSox past Norfolk

June 26, 2014

PAWTUCKET – If you weren’t settled into your seat at McCoy Stadium until the second inning Thursday night, you missed a lot.
A five-run first inning highlighted by Garin Cecchini’s grand slam propelled Pawtucket to a 7-3 victory over Norfolk before 5,297. Cecchini turned on a 2-1 offering from Jason Gurka and deposited it into the right-field bullpen for his third home run of the season.
The homer enabled Cecchini to take over the club lead in RBI with 30. The previous leader was Bryce Brentz with 28. Brentz hasn’t appeared in a game for the PawSox since May 15.

Holt's durability isn't lost on PawSox

June 25, 2014

PAWTUCKET — There have been three editions to Paul Dickson’s handy and comprehensive “The Dickson Baseball Dictionary,” though no revised version has graced bookstore shelves in the past five years.

If and when Dickson gets around to updating the game’s vernacular – 952 pages of words and phrases suggests that the author has covered all the bases (no pun intended) – he should make it a point to insert the full name of the Red Sox’ current version of a Swiss Army knife: Brock Holt.

Mayor: Time to relocate Registry

June 24, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Where’s the best location for the new registry of motor vehicles in the city?

It doesn’t matter who you talk to – from the chief of the state Division of Motor Vehicles to the mayor and the guy on the street – everyone seems to come up with the same answer: Put it in one of the hollowed-out retail plazas on Diamond Hill Road.

“I’m promoting it from an economic development standpoint,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “We’re all concerned about the exodus we’ve seen up there and we need to regenerate an area that’s been deflated.”
