PAWTUCKET â€” Sometimes staying put may well prove the best option. Kevin Millwood agrees, hence why heâ€™s not looking to leave the Red Sox organization anytime soon.
â€śI enjoy it here and feel that there could be some opportunity in the future [to once more pitch in the big leagues],â€ť said Millwood, addressing the thought process behind not exercising a recent opt-out date in his contract. â€śIt just seemed like a good situation to stay here and keep pitching. â€śMy biggest thing is this is a place Iâ€™ve enjoyed. I like the organization and hopefully it works out.â€ť
CUMBERLAND â€” Burrillville practiced all week expecting to face Cumberland National ace Brandon Croteau on Thursday at Garvin Field.
And it did. Just not until the third inning, after Burrillville had built an eight-run cushion and appeared well on its way to victory.
An appearance from Croteau â€” and his lethal curveball â€” changed all that.
Sparked by Croteauâ€™s four innings of stellar relief, Cumberland National rallied for an 11-9 win to keep pace in Pool B of the District IV tournament.
