Cumberland softball team drops Div. I winners' bracket semifinal to undefeated North Kingstown

June 4, 2014

PROVIDENCE — Cumberland’s return to Rhode Island College for the first time since the Clippers won the 2011 state championship was spoiled by the team that handed them their worst defeat of the season.
Undefeated North Kingstown snapped a scoreless tie with two unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and a three-run uprising in the fifth before winding up with a 6-2 win on Tuesday night in a Division I winners’ bracket semifinal.

This Mookie is a surefire bet to be a hit: Top-prospect Betts joins PawSox

June 3, 2014

PAWTUCKET – It used to be that any mention of the first name “Mookie” would send a collective shiver down the backs of Red Sox fans. Mention this particular Mookie, however, and you’re bound to receive a completely different reaction, one that doesn’t center on key words or phrases such as “groundball,” “through the legs” or “Buckner.”

Gutsy pitching can’t save Tigers’ season in 3-2 loss

June 2, 2014

PROVIDENCE – The final game of Tolman High’s season featured an all too familiar pattern: Plenty of good pitching to go around, but not nearly enough hitting to carry the day.

“Especially over the last third of the season, our pitchers have been holding teams to three or four runs. In Rhode Island Division II baseball, you’re doing all right,” stated Tigers coach Theo Murray.

Mounties survive roller-coaster ride, top Prout, 10-7

June 2, 2014

WOONSOCKET – After suffering a difficult-to-swallow 2-1, eight-inning loss to North Smithfield High on Saturday afternoon, Mount St. Charles faced elimination in the R.I. Division II/Region II Tournament entering its losers’ bracket tilt against Prout on Monday.

That’s why skipper Tom Seaver took his players aside beforehand and explained his game plan for the Crusaders.

Northmen post upset of MSC in Division II baseball playoffs

June 1, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Just before the start of the back half of the sixth inning, North Smithfield High head coach Jon Leddy approached his bench and indicated Prout School had just eliminated Scituate, 7-5, in a R.I. Division II/Region II Tournament loser’s bracket semifinal.

At least 30 miles north, Leddy’s Northmen had been embroiled in a 1-1 deadlock with favored Mount St. Charles in a winners’ bracket final on the latter’s home diamond on Saturday afternoon.

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.
