PawSox' Hassan able to turn things around

May 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Through all the early-season struggles he endured, Alex Hassan never once thought about reinventing the wheel, i.e. tweaking his batting stance or adjusting his hands on the bat, the kind of wholesale changes that no doubt creep into a player’s mind whenever things aren’t going well.

Rochester snaps PawSox's four-game win streak

May 8, 2012

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox were able to dodge the raindrops Tuesday night. The same cannot be said of the Rochester Red Wings.
Buoyed by 5 2/3 innings of strong pitching by Liam Hendriks, the Red Wings grounded the PawSox, 3-1, before 3,325 rain-free fans at McCoy Stadium. The forecast called for a major weather disturbance to arrive at some point during the game, but the precipitation was able to hold off long enough that the teams were able to get this one in.

PAWTUCKET — Say this about the Boston Red Sox – the organization is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to commemorating the centennial anniversary of Fenway Park.
As part of the season-long celebration, the Sox have set aside this month as a prime chance to revisit some of the ballpark’s most spine-tingling moments and salute the players primarily responsible for creating them.

Burrillville-SRA tennis showdown is suspended

May 8, 2012

BURRILLVILLE -- The D’Antuono brother tandem of sophomore Mike and junior Matt wanted desperately for Burrillville High to post a spirited victory over St. Raphael Academy on Tuesday afternoon.
They did their part, as both assembled straight-set victories over the Saints’ No. 1 and 2 representatives, seniors Sam Reinhardt and Juan Bedoya, respectively.
Perhaps a half hour after Mike had mustered a 6-1, 6-0 win over Reinhardt and Matt dispatched Bedoya, 6-1, 6-1, however, the rain became steadier, though the remaining players wanted to continue their assaults on winning.

Matsuzaka labors as PawSox earn fourth straight win

May 7, 2012

PAWTUCKET – In true maddening fashion, Daisuke Matsuzaka nibbled and nibbled some more in his rehab start Monday, which saw the Pawtucket Red Sox post a 4-0 victory. Facing a free-swinging Rochester outfit, Matsuzaka lasted just 4 2/3 innings, with 49 of his 87 pitches going for strikes.

Dice-K still very much a big deal in Japan

May 7, 2012

PAWTUCKET – To many Red Sox fans, Daisuke Matsuzaka has always been a man of mystery. Granted, the language barrier has made it next to impossible for the American populous to get a firm handle on the Japanese import, yet judging by the heavy media turnout for Matsuzaka’s rehab outing for the Pawtucket Red Sox Monday, the right-handed pitcher is still very much a big deal in his native land.

Red Sox' Kalish continues to stay positive on comeback trail; St. Raphael alum Chris Iannetta reflects on catching Jered Weaver's no-hitter

May 4, 2012

In the year-plus quest that has taken Ryan Kalish to the far reaches of dealing with injuries and back again, the Red Sox outfield prospect has learned that it’s best to not get his spirits up too much or sink too low. On the subject of looking ahead, i.e. placing a definitive date on when he might return to game action, Kalish prefers to stay in the moment.
When team officials inform Kalish that he’s passed every single checkpoint, only then will he be allowed to vacate the Fort Myers, Fla. premise that’s served as his holding cell for some time now.

Mounties rally to top Lions

May 4, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Two teams heading in opposite directions met up Friday with Mount St. Charles maintaining its winning ways courtesy of a come-from-behind 5-3 triumph at Lincoln High’s expense.
Now winners of three of its last four, MSC hung on a four-spot on visiting Lincoln in the home portion of the sixth, erasing what was a 3-1 deficit. The inning began innocently enough with Taylor Sutherland reaching on an error with Dan Glod singling to make it first and second.

Error-prone MSC softball team falls to N.K., 7-5

May 3, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles got a ‘D’ for its defense on Thursday afternoon.
The Mounties committed a half dozen errors in its Division I crossover showdown with North Kingstown, and while those miscues led to only two unearned runs, that turned out to be the difference in the visiting Skippers’ 7-5 victory that gave the Division I-South leaders their sixth straight win.
This game was a neat back-and-forth affair until the Skippers (8-1) rallied for three runs in the top of the fifth inning to claim their two-run lead.
