PawSox' Hill has options to consider

May 30, 2014

PAWTUCKET – As a 34-year-old with 181 games of pitching experience at the major-league level under his belt, Rich Hill is well aware there’s a whole other realm to keep in mind while recording outs on the mound.

WEB ONLY: De La Rosa will replace Buchholz in Boston's rotation on Saturday

May 29, 2014

PAWTUCKET – For much of Thursday, the Red Sox were tight-lipped as far as naming a starting pitcher for Saturday’s game against Tampa Bay.

To borrow from the well-known fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, a trail of breadcrumbs was left around McCoy Stadium on Thursday afternoon prior to Pawtucket wrapping up its four-game series with Gwinnett. The breadcrumbs may have not formed a path that led directly to the locker room of the intended PawSox pitcher who will take Clay Buchholz’ spot, though their mere metaphorical presence did help to shed some light on the matter.

Cumberland softball team shuts down Westerly again for first Division I playoff victory in three seasons

May 29, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Cumberland didn’t need to seek the services of a witch doctor or a sorcerer to eradicate the single-elimination playoff round curse that had plagued the team in recent years.
Instead, the Clippers parlayed the strong three-hit pitching of Juliet Nelson with some errorless defense and clutch hitting into a 7-0 triumph over Westerly at Tucker Field that not only exorcised their demons, but also vaulted them into the double-elimination portion of the Division I state tournament.

Drew goes 1-for-3 in PawSox's win over Gwinnett

May 28, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Nearly seven months have passed since Stephen Drew last appeared in a major-league game.

Naturally, the goal is to see as many pitches as possible following such a lengthy layoff. Given that this is considered spring training for Drew, something he acknowledged prior to going 1-for-3 with two strikeouts in Pawtucket’s 3-0 victory over Gwinnett at frigid McCoy Stadium on Wednesday night, there’s also a sense of urgency on the shortstop’s part.

Stephen Drew’s high school coach: ‘I know he was itching to play’

May 28, 2014

PAWTUCKET — At long last, Danny Redshaw can enjoy all the perks that come with subscribing to the MLB Extra Innings package.

“It will be nice to turn on the TV and see a young man who you were fortunate enough to coach in high school and has gone on to play Major League baseball,” Redshaw admitted when reached via cell phone.

Cumberland baseball team captures Div. I playoff opener, tops East Greenwich in eight innings

May 28, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Paul Murphy didn’t know it at the time, but when Cumberland High had to fill a non-league date after a postponement last week and Barrington came calling, it would be a preview to a R.I. Division I/Region 4 Tournament opener.
The Clippers had snatched that “glorified scrimmage,” as the skipper Murphy phrased it, by an 8-6 count, but neither squad offered its best at the opponent.

Lavallee, Morgan pace field of nearly 500 at Woonsocket's George Nasuti Novans Pride 5K

May 26, 2014

WOONSOCKET -- George Nasuti would have been extremely proud of this show of support.
After last September’s inaugural event attracted 259 participants, the newly-tabbed George Nasuti Novans Pride 5K, named in memory of the longtime educator, administrator, and Woonsocket High athletic director who passed away unexpectedly in February, saw a huge spike in signups.

Mount tennis team completes perfect season, downs Classical to repeat as Division II state champions

May 24, 2014

PAWTUCKET — Mount St. Charles junior Mike Doody had just suffered a lopsided 6-1, 6-1 loss to Classical High sophomore Austen Clark at the top singles spot, but he didn't dwell on it.
Seconds after his individual match had ended, he grabbed his gear from one section of Slater Park's Mike Kenny Courts at mid-afternoon Saturday and hustled to the other to catch a glimpse of his teammates' tilts.
“This is hard,” he sighed while watching the Mount's second and third doubles' pairs. “When I'm playing, I can control what I'm doing. Watching them, I feel helpless. I can't do anything about it.”

Undefeated Narragansett dethrones North Smithfield as Division III tennis champions with 4-0 triumph

May 24, 2014

PAWTUCKET — The last time North Smithfield had faced Narragansett, way back on cold and windy April 14, the Northmen snatched all three doubles matches before the four singles players suffered defeats.
The final: Narragansett, 4-3.
Based on that information, North Smithfield head coach Matt Pavao had hoped one or two of his singles representatives could eke out a triumph when the two forces met again for the R.I. Division III Team Tournament championship.

May 23, 2014
