Pawtucket Red Sox | Barnes returned to PawSox with a few things to work on

June 23, 2015

PAWTUCKET – Matt Barnes could be upset, downright disgruntled, after being sent down to the Pawtucket Red Sox – again – on June 16.

Instead, the 25-year-old righty reliever has chosen to remain positive, and he claimed he has an abundance of reasons why.

First, during his second call-up to Boston between May 9 and June 16, he spent over five weeks collecting key information from coaches and fellow Red Sox relievers; and, second, is planning on putting that advice to good use while he’s honing his skills in Triple-A.

Cumberland Baseball | Clippers comes up short in epic Game 3 against Hendricken for D.I title

June 18, 2015

PAWTUCKET – It was right there for Cumberland’s taking.

On two separate occasions Thursday night, the Clippers had three-time state champion Bishop Hendricken against the ropes. There was a surefire double-play ball in the ninth inning that instead was a throwing error resulted in the Hawks scoring the tying run.

That was hard to watch, but then came the 10th inning where Cumberland loaded the bases with no outs and failed to capitalize. It was a huge chance squandered.

PROVIDENCE  –  Immediately after senior southpaw Colin Murphy had fielded Eriberto Collado’s grounder and tossed to first for the final out on Wednesday evening, he turned to his Burrillville High infielders, threw his glove in the air and allowed them to tackle him.

It took mere seconds for Murphy, now under a whole lot of poundage, to fall to the turf closest to the Broncos’ third-base dugout, and he had no qualms with the pile-on.
