PawSox walk off with 2-1 victory over RailRiders

August 26, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Follow the trail of pixie dust and it will lead you directly to the home clubhouse at McCoy Stadium.
The good times continued at the ballpark Monday night as the PawSox staged a 2-1 walk-off win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. Pawtucket trailed 1-0 heading into the bottom of the ninth before receiving a game-tying sacrifice fly from catcher Ryan Lavarnway and a game-ending RBI single by Mark Hamilton that came on a 3-2 pitch.

PawSox's DiSarcina: Jeter's 'a classy individual'

August 26, 2013

PAWTUCKET — For PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina, seeing Derek Jeter propel himself through the rehab process this past weekend helped conjure up one pleasant memory after another.

“I hadn’t seen him in a while, but the first thing I thought of when I saw him was ‘Man, he’s a classy individual,’” DiSarcina expressed. “In my mind, he and Cal Ripken Jr. were the torchbearers. Cal handed it over to him, and not because Derek won, but it’s the way he won.

McGair: Bogaerts could be this year's version of Orioles' Machado

August 26, 2013

On the surface, Xander Bogaerts is this year’s answer to Baltimore’s Manny Machado. Both are talented 20-year-olds with left-side-of-the-infield pedigree who have skyrocketed up the organizational ladder, each making their respective debut on an American League East squad during the height of a playoff race.

Magill cruises to third "Yo" Raymond 5K victory

August 24, 2013

CUMBERLAND — The last time Chris Magill ran in the “Yo” Raymond Memorial 5K, he was on the losing end of the closest finish in the race’s seven-year history.

Fielding position, holding runners top areas that require Ranaudo's attention

August 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET — As PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina and pitching coach Rich Sauveur deftly explained, there are certain and significant areas that require Anthony Ranaudo’s attention.
Mind you this particular topic has nothing to do with Ranaudo’s ability to throw a baseball. In the promising righthander’s case, what DiSarcina and Sauveur are implying is that Ranaudo comprehends the importance of his “other” duties, such as fielding the position and holding runners.

New RIIL realignment guidelines to take effect in 2014-15

August 20, 2013

PROVIDENCE — Perhaps there’s no way getting around it. Coming up with a realignment proposal that soothes the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s masses is not as simple or straightforward as snapping one’s fingers.
That said, a few ruffled feathers has not impeded the realignment committee branch of the Rhode Island Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (RIIAAA) from coming up with a solution that on the surface could help foster the kind of harmony that has been elusive whenever this particular topic is mentioned.

Mortensen finds groove as starter following DFA

August 18, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Clayton Mortensen’s 2013 season has featured a wide range of emotions.
From making Boston’s Opening Day roster to landing on the disabled list with a right groin strain to getting designated for assignment for the first time ever, the 28-year-old Mortensen is living baseball proof that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Moving past what seemingly must feel like a lifetime’s worth of transactions that were compartmentalized into a short period has perhaps been reconcilable thanks to the right-handed pitcher’s new role with the Pawtucket Red Sox.
