PawSox one win away from Governors' Cup championship

September 12, 2012

PAWTUCKET – PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler likes to point out that each playoff game has been the equivalent of a box of chocolates – you just never know who’s going to play the role of hero on a given night.
Wednesday saw Pawtucket’s battery of pitcher Zach Stewart and catcher Dan Butler step to the forefront and take their bows. Their induction into the club’s ever-expanding legion of primetime performers was officially cemented after PawSox silenced the Charlotte Knights, 2-0, in Game Two of the Governors’ Cup finals before an audience of 3,525.

Brentz's sliding plays key role in PawSox's wins

September 12, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Lately, much attention has been paid to the hitting exploits of Bryce Brentz – deservedly so, too.
The outfield prospect carried a .471 postseason average into Game Two of the Governors’ Cup Championship Series, a figure buoyed by a little bit of everything from two home runs to two doubles to five runs batted in.

Pawtucket Red Sox pitchers find balance between Governors’ Cup finals, possible callup to Boston

September 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Focusing on depth, along with the current state of Boston’s maxed-out pitching staff, there are several intriguing options on the Pawtucket Red Sox that the parent club is undoubtedly keeping close tabs upon.
Some of these additional pieces are already included on the 40-man roster, like Zach Stewart and Pedro Beato. For those in the non-inclusive position, such as Alex Wilson and Nelson Figueroa, some manipulating of the roster would have to transpire before they could become eligible to pitch for Boston.

Volleyball Mounties make quick work of Townies

September 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Ever since Mount St. Charles made the move to Division I two seasons ago, the Mounties have hooked up with Division I-North foe East Providence to play in some competitive matches, with both sides bringing out their very best brand of volleyball.
On Monday night, the Mounties and Townies renewed acquaintances, but to the dismay of the fans that packed the Mounties’ gymnasium, they saw two teams trying to shake off their early season cobwebs and overcome more than their share of errors.

WEB ONLY: PawSox advance to Governors' Cup finals

September 8, 2012

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – For the first time since 2003, the Pawtucket Red Sox will play for the right to be called Governors’ Cup champions. The PawSox clinched a spot in this week’s championship series after disposing of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 7-1, in Game Four of the best-of-five opening-round series on Saturday night at Frontier Field. Pawtucket wins the series, three games to one. The finals get underway Tuesday night with the first two games on tap at McCoy Stadium. The PawSox will play Charlotte after the Knights eliminated first-round foe Indianapolis in four games.

Evans enjoys big day as Woonsocket blasts E.P.

September 8, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Inside the Barry Field meeting/locker room hangs a sign reading simply, “Discipline: Do what has to be done; when it has to be done; as well as it can be done; do it that way all the time.”
Excepting a couple of fumbles (one lost) and five penalties for a minus-32 yards, Woonsocket High pretty much followed those instructions to a “T” in its Challenge Cup non-league tilt against East Providence High on what became a soggy Saturday afternoon.

PawSox honor Labossiere for 40 years of service

September 7, 2012

PAWTUCKET — There was Paul Labossiere, as usual focused on the task at hand inside the McCoy Stadium ticket office. To this Central Falls native and current Lincoln resident, Labor Day Monday was typical – no deviation in the slightest from the previous 71 PawSox home dates in the 2012 season, or the 39 years of loyal service that preceded this one.

PawSox nip SWB Yankees, take 2-0 series lead

September 6, 2012

PAWTUCKET – It’s closing time for your Pawtucket Red Sox – as in closing out the opposition and advancing to the Governor’s Cup finals.
First things first as the PawSox still need to notch one more win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Such a scenario could come to fruition as early as Friday night at Rochester’s Frontier Field after Pawtucket grabbed Game Two of its opening-round series Thursday night by a 3-2 count at McCoy Stadium before 2,214 supportive and at times enthusiastic fans.

High school football season kicks off tonight

September 6, 2012

The temptation to overlook this week’s non-league gridiron slate is great, understanding that league play – set to commence a week from now – serves as judge, jury and executioner.
Over time, principles rooted in Darwinism help in separating the wheat from the chaff by performing the simple act of drawing a line right down the middle. Such a divide won’t begin on Friday night as teams partake in what could essentially be chalked up to the final installment after nearly four weeks of preseason camp.

Mount spikes Classical in Div. I season opener

September 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Last year, Mount St. Charles rattled off 15 straight victories, the first 14 good for an undefeated regular-season mark and the Division I-North championship, before falling to Ponaganset in a crushing state tournament semifinal.
The Mounties, hoping for a repeat of that success in 2011, opened this campaign in rather impressive fashion, posting a rather easy 3-0 triumph over Division I-North foe Classical at the Al Morro Athletic Complex gymnasium on Wednesday night.
