CUMBERLAND – If not for Cumberland High’s success in Division II over the past few years, it would’ve been a treat to watch it face traditional II-B rival St. Raphael Academy.
But the Clippers – after claiming the D-II Super Bowl crown two seasons ago before dropping the championship contest to West Warwick late last fall – rose to the top tier earlier this year.
DURHAM, N.C. â€“ After dropping a heartbreaking, 4-3, 11-inning loss at McCoy Stadium late Wednesday night, the Pawtucket Red Sox were hell-bent on evening the score against the Durham Bulls in the third game of the best-of-five Governors' Cup finals set 24 hours later.
PAWTUCKET – One down, two to go.
Cumberland American Little League coaches and players acknowledge the applause from the Fenway Park crowd prior to Friday night's Blue Jays-Red Sox game. Joining the New England champs is Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster.
PAWTUCKET – Taking center stage following two rather quiet Injury Fund scrimmages, Tolman High all but set Max Read Field’s gridiron on fire Friday night during a 25-7 romp over Cumberland.
PAWTUCKET — During the regular season, Pawtucket Red Sox righty Matt Barnes was 2-1 in three starts with a bloated 7.18 ERA.
But any resemblance between the regular-season Barnes and the post-season Barnes was pure coincidence.

PAWTUCKET -- Garin Cecchini didn’t exactly crush the ball in the 10th inning Wednesday night. But his three-hop single over a drawn-in infield gave the Pawtucket Red Sox a 2-1 victory over the Syracuse Chiefs in Game 1 of a best-of-five Governors’ Cup semifinal series.
Game 2 is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Thursday with a pair of right-handers on the mound – Syracuse’s Scott McGregor (1-2, 3.91 ERA) and Pawtucket’s Matt Barnes (8-9, 3.95 ERA).
PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox will vie for their second Governors’ Cup crown in three years when they takes on International League-North Division champion Syracuse in a five-game semifinal set to begin tonight at 7:05 at McCoy Stadium.
The PawSox earned a club-record fourth straight post-season appearance when they clinched the wild card berth on Sunday.
PAWTUCKET – Four consecutive trips to the second-season derby known as the Governors’ Cup playoffs: since 2011, no other International League can lay claim to this feat.
