WOONSOCKET — The natural question for Navigant Credit Union Post 85 coach Jim Gauthier after his squad eked out a 3-1 verdict over the North Providence Post 29 Senators on Tuesday night was this:

“We were just talking about that,” Gauthier grinned, referencing the post-Post 85 meeting on the Renaud Field mound. “He didn’t have his best stuff, but he kept battling.”

July 9, 2012

PAWTUCKET — Sunday marked the first time Bob Montgomery saw Ryan Lavarnway up close and in person.

Good news for Red Sox -- the cavalry's coming back!

July 8, 2012
