PawSox top Lehigh Valley; Ortiz is 0-for-4 again

April 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET — At this stage of his rehab assignment, David Ortiz is more concerned about feeling good when he steps out of the batter’s box as opposed to actual results.
The Red Sox star came out of Wednesday’s contest admitting that his injured heels are doing just fine. He finished hitless in four at-bats as Pawtucket bid adieu to a two-game losing streak with a 6-1 triumph against Lehigh Valley.

April 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET — If first impressions do indeed count, then Mitch Maier put his best foot forward upon formally introducing himself to PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina.
“He’s very driven and focused,” was the takeaway DiSarcina had of Pawtucket’s new outfield addition. “I didn’t have to ask him to come into the office and go over the signs. He walked right in that first day.”

PawSox with Mass. roots react to Boston Marathon tragedy

April 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — For members of the PawSox family with Massachusetts blood running through their veins, the horrific and tragic events that marred the Boston Marathon hit particularly hard.
“It’s a special day for race fans and baseball fans; there’s a (Boston Bruins) game at night. It’s a great time for the town,” explained manager Gary DiSarcina, a native of Malden, Mass. and current resident of Plymouth. “When you least expect it, that’s when these things happen.”

Ortiz goes 0-for-4 in PawSox's loss to Lehigh Valley

April 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — What David Ortiz is attempting to do is adhere to spring-training protocol.
The question is, will the Red Sox slugger be able to get everything ironed out over eight or so at-bats in the coming days with the Pawtucket Red Sox? In 2010, Ortiz received 62 at-bats in spring training and equaled the total the following year. In 2012, he collected 57 Grapefruit League at-bats.

Lincoln survives close call with Mount in 6-5 win

April 16, 2013

WOONSOCKET — In an impressive 26-game win streak that dates back to its season opener a year ago, Lincoln has experienced only a handful of close games that not only tested the team’s mettle, but also presented some anxious moments for its players, coaches, and fans.
But while most of those tight contests were decided by three or more runs, only one was a one-run nailbiter — Tuesday afternoon’s chilly Division I affair against host and longtime foe Mount St. Charles.

IronPigs cool off PawSox; Ortiz late scratch with heel pain

April 15, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox, already off to its finest start to a season in club history, seemed poised to move to 10-1 after holding a 3-1 cushion through seven innings on Monday night.
But righty reliever Chris Carpenter surrendered the Lehigh Valley IronPigs five runs in the top of the eighth, and the PawSox ultimately suffered an 8-3 International League-North beatdown before 3,849 fans at McCoy Stadium.

Villa Novans walk off with first win of season

April 15, 2013

WOONSOCKET — A walk-off win that results in Woonsocket High’s first triumph of the season. That was the narrative of the Villa Novans’ come-from-behind performance on Monday.
You hate to associate “must win” with a game that takes place during the second week of the regular season. Standing at 0-2 in Division I-North and 0-3 overall, Woonsocket understood that halting the slide was imperative against a St. Raphael outfit that was seeking to maintain its pristine ways.
