MOOSIC, Pa. – In the eyes of some, Allen Webster passed his Triple-A debut with flying colors.
As far as the promising pitcher is concerned, the fact he ended up tossing five shutout innings of two-run ball with five strikeouts and three walks doesn’t paint the entire picture. Regarded as the top pitching prospect in Boston’s minor-league system, Webster said that things could have gone better Friday night as Pawtucket rallied for its second straight win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 9-4.

Ed Cooley made it perfectly clear following Providence’s ouster from the Big East Tournament that it’s either NIT or bust for his Friars. While some may interpret Cooley’s choice of words – “I didn’t come to Providence College to play in another basketball tournament.” – as the head coach brushing aside the CBI (College Basketball Invitational), recent history suggests that playing in a postseason event that’s not affiliated with the Field of 68 (NCAA Tournament) or Field of 32 (NIT) does have some merit.
