Cumberland Baseball | Clippers comes up short in epic Game 3 against Hendricken for D.I title

June 18, 2015


PAWTUCKET – It was right there for Cumberland’s taking.

On two separate occasions Thursday night, the Clippers had three-time state champion Bishop Hendricken against the ropes. There was a surefire double-play ball in the ninth inning that instead was a throwing error resulted in the Hawks scoring the tying run.

That was hard to watch, but then came the 10th inning where Cumberland loaded the bases with no outs and failed to capitalize. It was a huge chance squandered.

June 18, 2015


PROVIDENCE  –  Immediately after senior southpaw Colin Murphy had fielded Eriberto Collado’s grounder and tossed to first for the final out on Wednesday evening, he turned to his Burrillville High infielders, threw his glove in the air and allowed them to tackle him.

It took mere seconds for Murphy, now under a whole lot of poundage, to fall to the turf closest to the Broncos’ third-base dugout, and he had no qualms with the pile-on.

Mount St. Charles Baseball | MIRACLE FINISH: Cardiac Mounties deliver walk-off victory over Tolman in Game 1 of Division II finals

Mount St. Charles Baseball | READY TO TAKE AIM: Mounties to meet Tolman with Div. II title on the line

June 15, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Virtually every time Tolman High meets Mount St. Charles on the diamond, Tigers' mentor Theo Murray mentions his personal history with the Woonsocket Catholic school.

It seems back in 1992, when Murray represented Shea as a standout senior third/first baseman, his Raiders held a precarious lead over the Mounties in the R.I. Division II Tournament losers' bracket final. In the end, however, MSC prevailed with a late rally, 7-6, eliminating Shea from a berth opposite Westerly, the eventual state champion.

He knows full well what his club is up against when the two meet in the opener of the best-of-three D-I championship set, slated for today at 6 p.m. inside McCoy Stadium.
