Randall advances to finals of R.I. Amateurs

July 12, 2012

MIDDLETOWN – The finals of the 107th R.I. Golf Association Amateur Championship will feature the old guard vs. the new guard.

The first 18 holes of this stroke play format will take place beginning at 8 a.m. with the final 18 commencing shortly after 1 p.m.

Burrillville caps off District IV play in grand style

July 11, 2012

BURRILLVILLE — It’s been more than a decade since the Burrillville Major Division all-star team concluded pool play in the District IV playoffs with an unblemished mark, but that’s what the Blue & Gold did on Wednesday night at Sherman Park.
And Burrillville put on a pure hitting display in nailing down its fourth victory. The winners received monster games at the plate from their No. 2 and 3 batters in the lineup, Tyler Richards and Josh Dichario, and ended up amassing 23 hits in a 22-1 triumph over Bernon that was cut short after four innings by the mercy rule.

Post 85 tops N.P., halts four-game losing streak

July 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET — The natural question for Navigant Credit Union Post 85 coach Jim Gauthier after his squad eked out a 3-1 verdict over the North Providence Post 29 Senators on Tuesday night was this:
Is it possible for a pitcher to be inconsistent, yet still toss a two-hitter?
“We were just talking about that,” Gauthier grinned, referencing the post-Post 85 meeting on the Renaud Field mound. “He didn’t have his best stuff, but he kept battling.”

Ex-Red Sox backstop offers observations, critiques of Lavarnway, Saltalamacchia

July 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Sunday marked the first time Bob Montgomery saw Ryan Lavarnway up close and in person. Studying the Pawtucket Red Sox catcher from the television booth in the press box located high above McCoy Stadium, Montgomery made good use of the monitor adjacent to him, particularly when tracking Lavarnway’s mitt motion as he received the ball from the pitcher.

Good news for Red Sox -- the cavalry's coming back!

July 8, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Clay Buchholz and Jacoby Ellsbury didn’t gallop out of McCoy Stadium on white horses. Still, it’s hard not to get all “wild, wild west,” sensing that the cavalry is heading toward Fenway Park – and not a moment too soon.

Extra-base hits fuel CALL's victory over Bernon

July 6, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Cumberland American All-Stars skipper Bruce Stanford knew he had a decent-hitting club, but nothing like this.
His Nos. 4, 5 and 7 hitters finished 10-for-10 with nine RBI and eight runs scored as CALL rolled to a wildly-entertaining 12-6 victory over Bernon’s best in a R.I. District IV Major Division Tournament Pool B tilt at Ayotte Field on Friday night.

Middlebrooks' sister is PawSox intern

July 4, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Lacey Middlebrooks arrived in this city, fully expecting to see brother Will Middlebrooks hone his craft with the Pawtucket Red Sox while fulfilling her internship requirements with the Triple-A ball club.
Borrowing from an idiom, “The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray.” Yes, there is a Middlebrooks presently at McCoy Stadium, yet instead of someone making connections with fans seated behind the outfield fence, this particular Middlebrooks is building a rapport as a pre-game, on-field coordinator and press box contributor.

Magill captures sixth Arnold Mills Road Race

July 4, 2012

CUMBERLAND – Add the ages of the second- and third-place finishers together and you would get 39, the age of the winner of the 44th edition of the Arnold Mills Road Race.
As 23-year-old Scott Twardowski and Colin Tierney, 16, learned on Fourth of July Wednesday, there’s still plenty of life left in the feet of Chris Magill, now a six-time champion of the holiday running event. The individual title – achieved in 21:06, which was 13 seconds better than Rehoboth’s Twardowski and 21 seconds quicker than East Greenwich’s Tierney – represents the first for Magill since 2006.
