Lincoln rallies past La Salle, improves to 7-0

April 21, 2011

PROVIDENCE — When you’re on a roll like Lincoln High, things just seem to fall into place.
The Lions did their best work in the latter innings Thursday, scoring three runs apiece in the sixth and seventh innings to best La Salle Academy, 8-5.
At 7-0, Lincoln stands tall amongst the Division I-North hierarchy. In fact, the Lions are one of just two teams in the league to sport such a glittering mark, North Kingstown being the other.

Northmen suffer first loss

April 20, 2011

NORTH SMITHFIELD — When you have a very talented team that’s loaded with freshmen and sophomores like the one North Smithfield has this season, even the worst of innings can pop up now and then.
One of those innings took place in the sixth inning of the Northmen’s Division II crossover game at home against Exeter/West Greenwich, and it helped lead to N.S.’s first loss of the season.
The Northmen committed four errors in an ugly inning that saw the defending Division II champion Scarlet Knights scratch out all its runs in a 3-0 victory.

April 20, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Felix Doubront is returning to his pitching roots. After serving as a left-handed option in Boston’s bullpen for a week-plus, Doubront will now serve as a member of Pawtucket’s starting rotation.
“He’s going to start games,” confirmed Mike Hazen, the Red Sox’ vice president of player development. “He’ll probably be on a shortened pitch count to start, but we’ll build him up from there. He’ll start the games.”

April 19, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Cumberland High coach Paul Murphy attributes his team’s latest surge in the ultra-competitive Division I-North to its work at the plate
In Tuesday morning’s contest against Mount St. Charles Academy, Murphy’s crew didn’t quite get the double-digit hits like it did against Moses Brown and Smithfield last week. But the Clippers did get the key hits it needed to earn themselves a come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the Mounties at Tucker Field.

Mount soars past SRA

April 18, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Mount St. Charles is starting to look a bit like the baseball program that captured two straight Division II state titles before joining Division I this season.
The Mounties won their second Division I game in four days on Monday, breaking open a tight contest against St. Raphael Academy with a seven-run rally in the fifth inning en route to a 10-3 victory.
Mount, now 2-3 in Division I, got a complete-game pitching performance from junior Taylor Sutherland, who scattered seven hits and settled in after allowing single runs in both the first and second innings.

Constantino, Lux prepare for Boston Marathon

April 17, 2011

BOSTON — For the elite runners at this morning’s Boston Marathon, the goal is to be the first to cross the finish line.
For several of the other participants, including Cumberland residents and forty-something runners Dave Constantino and Robert Lux, a winning performance is defined by the numbers on the clock when they reach their final destination at Copley Square.
Constantino and Lux, a pair of triathletes as well as good friends, those numbers they’re hoping begin with a two. In other words, a sub three-hour effort.

Goucher was considered among the medal contenders at the Summer Games, but placed a still-respectable ninth in the 5K and tenth in the 10K.

Theroux eyeing strong effort at Boston Marathon

April 16, 2011

LINCOLN – Mike Theroux doesn’t have to go too far back in his memory bank to recall the first time he went for a run.
That’s because it occurred just six years ago for the 47-year-old Lincoln resident.
“I ran from my house to Lincoln High School and back,” he said. “It was about a three-mile run. At the time I was happy I was actually doing it, but it was amazing how much that run took out of me.”
Theroux will be running three miles again tomorrow. Only this time, he’ll still have 23 more before he reaches his final destination.
