Mount tops Cumberland in "Pink Out" softball game

May 6, 2014

CUMBERLAND — In an outstanding display of sportsmanship and community concern, especially for those who have suffered from cancer, Cumberland High and Mount St. Charles conducted a “Pink Out” contest at Tucker Field on Tuesday afternoon.
When Clippers’ skipper Marty Crowley opened his heart and invited MSC veteran mentor Cliff Matthews to partake in such a fundraiser last month, the latter jumped at the chance.
The coaches produced an emotional yet fun-loving ceremony prior to the Division I tilt, and five cancer survivors took part in the event.

Wilson's been thumbs-up in PawSox's bullpen

May 6, 2014

PAWTUCKET — The Alex Wilson who posted a 10.80 ERA in four Grapefruit League outings is a distant memory.

In his place is a reliever who has been a rock solid contributor at the backend of Pawtucket’s bullpen. Entering Tuesday’s game against Toledo, the right-hander has posted a microscopic 0.71 ERA in 12.1 innings. International League foes are hitting a paltry .143 against Wilson, who is averaging 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings.
