NORTH SMITHFIELD - Thankfully for North Smithfield, Scituateâs comeback ran out of innings.
Owners of a 6-0 lead after three innings of play, the Northmen had to hold off the resilient Spartans over the last four frames before coming away with a 9-7 win on Monday afternoon in their Division II-North encounter on the Northmenâs campus.
PAWTUCKET â Jackie Bradley Jr. is no longer on the disabled list. However, the promising outfielder remains in a holding pattern.
At least for the foreseeable future, Bradley will be subjected to a schedule that the Red Sox put together in an effort to ease him back into full-time duty. He missed nearly two weeks earlier this month due to tendinitis in his right bicep, an injury that he first noticed during Pawtucketâs road trip to Rochester and Buffalo late last month.
WOONSOCKET â The latest actuarial data confirms that the financial condition of the cityâs locally-administered pension plan for police and firefighters meets the stateâs definition of âcriticalâ because its assets have dipped below 60 percent of its liabilities to pensioners.
The data from USI Consulting means the city is no longer exempt from having to file a Funding Improvement Plan to the state Department of Revenue under a law passed last year by the General Assembly.
