Hien no-hitter highlights 10-0 Lincoln win over Woonsocket

July 9, 2014

 
WOONSOCKET – Something typical of the Lincoln Little League All-Stars – keeping alive a tradition that has held true for years now after a win or rare loss – coaches ask their players to hustle to the outfield for a team meeting.
 
Skipper Charlie Hien directed his troops to do the same on Wednesday night, but he seemingly spent more time on his cell phone than lauding his guys for a job well done.

Cumberland American punches ticket to District IV finals

July 7, 2014

SMITHFIELD — The Cumberland American All-Stars came into this R.I. Little League District IV Tournament winners’ bracket final with consecutive “mercy-rule” triumphs over rival Cumberland National and Burrillville.

In the latter tilt, skipper Dave Belisle’s crew clobbered nine extra-base hits and 17 in all to deliver a 19-0 pasting, that following a 10-0 victory over CNLL.

The key question on Monday night was this: Did Smithfield have enough offensive firepower to outduel CALL?

For an inning, the answer was yes. After that? Nope.

Cumberland's Miller eyes riding for a good cause, strong finish at Pan-Mass Challenge

July 7, 2014

CUMBERLAND – Scott Miller may never have gotten into charity ultra-distance cycling if not for a letter he received in the mail way back in the late 1990s.

“It was from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and the letter asked me to get involved in the event,” noted Miller, a 57-year-old business owner from Cumberland. “It said, 'We'll train you to do a 100-mile ride, and you'll be a member of a 'Team in Training.' That caught my eye, so I looked into it.

PawSox pitcher Barnes has perfect example to follow in Ranaudo

July 6, 2014

PAWTUCKET – There was a time when the slightest mention of Anthony Ranaudo’s injury-marred 2012 campaign would prompt the same kind of reaction Brad Pitt had in the film “Fight Club.”

Paraphrasing the 1999 move – “We don’t talk about it.”

“Looking back it kind of stinks thinking that I lost a full year of development, but I’ve put it behind me,” said Raunado about his aforementioned trying season while sitting in the PawSox dugout recently.

In early August, Lisa Walkin will participate in her first-ever Pan-Mass Challenge as a mere recreational bicyclist, and she admits she’s as nervous as any woman could be.
