PAWTUCKET â€” Focusing on depth, along with the current state of Bostonâ€™s maxed-out pitching staff, there are several intriguing options on the Pawtucket Red Sox that the parent club is undoubtedly keeping close tabs upon.
Some of these additional pieces are already included on the 40-man roster, like Zach Stewart and Pedro Beato. For those in the non-inclusive position, such as Alex Wilson and Nelson Figueroa, some manipulating of the roster would have to transpire before they could become eligible to pitch for Boston.
WOONSOCKET â€” Ever since Mount St. Charles made the move to Division I two seasons ago, the Mounties have hooked up with Division I-North foe East Providence to play in some competitive matches, with both sides bringing out their very best brand of volleyball.
On Monday night, the Mounties and Townies renewed acquaintances, but to the dismay of the fans that packed the Mountiesâ€™ gymnasium, they saw two teams trying to shake off their early season cobwebs and overcome more than their share of errors.
A sizeable crowd turned out for the home opener of the Woonsocket Villa Novans football game against East Providence at Barry Field Saturday. The crowds brought the team good luck as they walked away with the 21-0 victory.
WOONSOCKET â€“ A man whose lower lip had been pierced for jewelry in at least 10 spots had to be taken to the hospital when the cosmetic incisions started bleeding following a scuffle with police early Monday.

Police said they were investigating a complaint of breaking and entering when they visited the coupleâ€™s third-floor apartment. The complaint was filed by Glodeâ€™s cousin, a woman in her 20s who lives in another apartment on the same floor.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Itâ€™s primary day in the city, an all-Democratic affair that features seven candidates vying for three spots in the General Assembly.
