Gomez to the rescue as PawSox top Red Wings

May 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Mauro Gomez ended his slump in a big way on Thursday afternoon.
The veteran first baseman delivered a two-out, two-run double into the right-field corner in the bottom of the eighth inning to erase a one-run deficit and lift the Pawtucket Red Sox to a 6-5 victory over the Rochester Red Wings in the finale of their four-game series at McCoy Stadium
Gomez, who was an International League All-Star with the Gwinnett Braves last year, came into this contest with just four hits in his last 45 at-bats, two of them coming in Wednesday night’s 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

Mount’s Brad Auclair: Ruler of the links

May 10, 2012

LINCOLN -- When senior Brad Auclair checked his text messages at Mount St. Charles on Thursday morning, he found one particularly intriguing – and funny.
“My father (John) likes to give me some advice before every match, and he said something like, ‘Swing smooth, relax, just go out and have fun,’” Auclair explained. “He also said, ‘Hit the ball solid’ and to think my way around the course, where I should leave each shot. He closed it with ‘Go out and shoot 32 again.’
“When I read it, I was thinking, ‘Yeah, right,’” he added. “I just wanted to be around par.”
