PAWTUCKET – Rich Sauveur can’t wait to see Anthony Ranaudo go all Pablo Picasso on the blank canvas that will represent his tenure at Triple-A Pawtucket after his promotion here on Friday.

WEB ONLY: Navigant takes playoff duel with Upper Deck, moves two wins away from state title

WEST WARWICK -- As a light drizzle started to find its way to McCarthy Field, the tides of the American Legion ‘Final Eight’ winners’ bracket final changed on one pitch.

That hit emptied the bases and gave Navigant a 4-3 lead, one that Post 85 would improve all the way to a 12-3 final.

That said, the power hitter is a realist and understands the slippery slope that comes with accelerating the rehab timetable in order to return to the field this season.

BRISTOL — Milliseconds after southpaw Brendan Wright had fielded an easy grounder and thrown to first baseman Jayden Struble for the final out on Thursday evening, Cumberland American's All-Stars came from all directions to celebrate mere feet in front of home plate.
