PROVIDENCE â€” Last year, Mount St. Charles rattled off 15 straight victories, the first 14 good for an undefeated regular-season mark and the Division I-North championship, before falling to Ponaganset in a crushing state tournament semifinal.
The Mounties, hoping for a repeat of that success in 2011, opened this campaign in rather impressive fashion, posting a rather easy 3-0 triumph over Division I-North foe Classical at the Al Morro Athletic Complex gymnasium on Wednesday night.
PAWTUCKET â€“ One down, five to go.
Seeking to claim the franchiseâ€™s first Governorâ€™s Cup championship in 28 years, the Pawtucket Red Sox grabbed Game One of the best-of-five opening-round series against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 7-4. The PawSox fell behind 4-0 after 2Â˝ innings before compiling seven unanswered runs to end the contest, which was witnessed by 1,518.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Larry Lucchino admitted Wednesday that he tries to clear his schedule and make a once-per-season pilgrimage to McCoy Stadium. In that regard, the Red Soxâ€™s president and CEO should thank the PawSox for advancing to the Governorâ€™s Cup playoffs.
Providing a textbook case of better late than never, Lucchino took in Wednesdayâ€™s playoff opener from Pawtucket president Mike Tamburroâ€™s box.
Arriving roughly 3 1/2 hours prior to the scheduled 7:05 first pitch, Lucchino spent quite a bit of time in the home teamâ€™s clubhouse and in the company of PawSox skipper Arnie Beyeler.
