Ochocinco glad to do things ‘Patriots Way’

August 9, 2011

FOXBOROUGH – Chad Ochocinco is changing his ways. And he’s not making any apologies for it.
To those Twitter followers who claim that the Patriots wide receiver has toned down his activity, Ochocinco has a clear response.
“You have to do it the Patriot Way, the way things are always done here,” Ochocinco said after Tuesday’s practice at Gillette Stadium. “One thing about this city, man, and their sports, all they do is win. So that stuff that I did in the past, there’s no need for it.”

The defeat leaves Cumberland American at 1-2 in pool play and in must-win territory heading into Wednesday morning’s contest against Vermont’s Barre Community.

Cumberland American blanked by N.H.

August 8, 2011

BRISTOL, Conn. --- After roughing up its opponents in more than half of its games in tournament play, Cumberland American got a bitter taste of its own medicine on Monday night.
Goffstown (N.H.) Junior went around its lineup and banged out six of its eight hits during a five-run rally in the bottom of the second inning that helped lead to an 8-0 triumph over CALL in their New England Regional pool play affair at Breen Field.

PawSox scorekeeper discusses his job

August 8, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Bruce Guindon would like to set the record straight regarding his role as the Pawtucket Red Sox official scorer.
First off, the International League, not the PawSox, employs Guindon. Translation: He is not in the home team’s back pocket. The Pawtucket native and registered Interscholastic League football and hockey official is empowered and instructed to make the correct call, the right one.

Millwood is granted release by Red Sox; uncertain of future

August 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Kevin Millwood’s tenure with the Pawtucket Red Sox has come to an end. Now the 36-year-old will have to weigh whether to seek out another opportunity or bow out gracefully, a decision that could be complicated based on the right-handed pitcher’s belief that he still has something to give.
For now, though, Millwood plans on visiting family he has based up and down the East Coast and squeeze in as many rounds of golf as possible. That sounds like someone who isn’t optimistic he’ll be on a mound again this season.

Rock 'n' Roll Providence draws over 7,000 runners

August 7, 2011

PROVIDENCE — His hair soaking wet and his feet inside some soggy pair of racing flats that just endured more than an hour’s worth of rainfall, Patrick Moulton sized up the weather for the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Providence Half Marathon on Sunday morning with a glass-half-full approach.
“It got tough, but at least it wasn’t hot,” he said. “It got gusty a few times, but for August you can’t complain. It could have been 100 degrees out there.”

Vega wins CumberlandFest 5K Road Race

August 6, 2011

CUMBERLAND – When your intention is to win a road race, it’s always helpful to have a little course knowledge before stepping foot on the starting line.
Lack of that one minor detail cost Kerwin Vega a victory at last year’s Cumberlandfest 5K. With a slight lead over Woonsocket’s Corey Brunelle during the last stretch of the five-kilometer race, Vega ran past the final left-hand turn to the finish line inside Diamond Hill State Park. That miscue allowed Brunelle to quickly seize control and produce a narrow one-second win over Vega.

Cumberland American wins regional opener

August 6, 2011

BRISTOL, Conn. – It’s official: Chris Wright is back.
He made that loud and clear on Saturday, delivering a game-tying two-run double in the bottom of the first inning, then firing 3 1/3 innings of shutout relief as Cumberland American Little League edged Andover National Little League, 5-3, in the New England regional tournament opener for both teams at Breen Field.
