Cumberland Softball | Bodington, Clippers take a bite out of Bulldogs

April 15, 2015

CUMBERLAND – It wasn’t the prettiest one-hitter ever produced, but that meant little to Cumberland High freshman southpaw Jocelyn Bodington.

Already a household name on the youth softball circuit in town and around the region, Bodington hurled six innings of hitless ball, finally closed with that one allowance – courtesy of eight walks and nine strikeouts in seven full frames – and dominated Westerly, 9-2, in a Division I crossover tilt at Tucker Field on Wednesday afternoon.

Pawtucket Red Sox | Sox start 2015 season on high note despite dropping 16-inning marathon Sunday

April 12, 2015


ALLENTOWN, Pa – Pawtucket left Coca-Cola  Park late Sunday afternoon with an opening-weekend series in their pocket.

However, their last game certainly wasn’t easy.

The PawSox had what appeared to be a comfortable 3-1 lead in their grasp at the top of the seventh inning, and a series sweep appeared inevitable. Starter Eddie Rodriguez had just left the game with an impressive 84-pitch showing in which he retired the final 11 batters he faced.

April 11, 2015

WOONSOCKET – Tom Seaver is typically very even-keeled, but he had to work to contain his excitement after Mount St. Charles eked out an astonishing, come-from-behind 12-11 Division II crossover triumph over Narragansett on Saturday afternoon.

The Mounties had to overcome deficits of 7-0 (after the first frame), 9-3 (following the top of the third) and 11-9 (in the fourth), but manufactured three runs in the back half of the seventh to improve to 2-0 overall and in league action.
