North Smithfield softball team puts away Prout, 9-1

April 26, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Eleven days away from league competition did very little to slow down North Smithfield on Friday afternoon.
The Northmen returned to their winning ways by disposing of the Prout School in their Division II crossover meeting at home. Backed by the splendid three-hit pitching of junior ace pitcher Karissa Carlton and a 13-hit attack fueled by seniors Tara Larson and Jaime LaFazia, N.S. raised its first-place Division II-North record to 5-1 by rolling to a 9-1 victory.

McGair: Zammarelli's on radar of Major League scouts

April 26, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

A different type of circus has come to the intersection of George Washington Highway and Old River Road, the characteristics of this particular traveling company unlike the sights and sounds appearing beneath your garden-variety big top.
Sorry to disappoint the youngsters, but you won’t find any elephants, flying acrobats or lion tamers here.

Smithfield nips Lincoln for 37th straight lacrosse win

April 25, 2013

LINCOLN — Lincoln High head coach Mike Ethier and his troops had hoped to derail the express that is Smithfield in a Division III “Battle of Unbeatens” at Tiberii Field on Thursday afternoon.
Despite the fact that the Sentinels had entered the contest as the two-time defending D-III champion and had posted 36 consecutive league wins dating back to 2011, Ethier believed his Lions had the wherewithal to pull off what – at least this season – would be only a mild upset.

Nelson, Bertherman lead Cumberland past La Salle

April 24, 2013

CUMBERLAND — There’s no place like home. And for Cumberland, which played eight of its first nine games of the season (two of them non-league contests in Massachusetts and one an Injury Fund non-leaguer) on the road, Wednesday afternoon’s Division I showdown against La Salle in the friendly confines of Tucker Field was certainly a welcomed breath of fresh air.

From Triple-A baseball to the NFL: PawSox's Socci is Patriots' new play-by-play broadcaster

April 24, 2013

A portentous email from an accomplished and revered pro football broadcaster was the first blossoming of the good things to come for Bob Socci.
Now that Socci is officially the lead play-by-play radio announcer for the New England Patriots, the veteran sportscaster and current radio voice of the Pawtucket Red Sox can look back with fondness at the message of hope Gil Santos delivered a few years back.

McGair: Ortiz crossed the line with his choice of language

April 23, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

David Ortiz is a well-compensated baseball player. He’s also an adult.
When the time came to address the Fenway Park masses last Saturday, the Red Sox star should have exhibited better judgment. Enough bombs went off in the city of Boston last week. Yet there was Big Papi, dropping an expletive-laced one that ended up casting a pall over a touching pre-game ceremony.

Grass is Green-er for Mount Girls' Lacrosse

April 20, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Mary Green knew she was coming into a good situation this winter when she accepted the head coaching job at Mount St. Charles.

She didn’t realize it was going to be as magnificent as it has been.

The former Bryant University two-sport standout has seen her Mounties roll out to a 4-1 mark – the best start in the program’s six-year history – and take charge of Division III-North, quickly establishing themselves as the “team to beat” in the five-team circuit.

Show of support for Tolman-Newtown evident at McCoy Stadium

April 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The telling numbers from the high-school baseball summit that transformed McCoy Stadium into a special place Saturday weren’t five and three – five being the number of runs Tolman High produced compared to the three scored by the guests of honor – Connecticut’s Newtown High.

Big Papi provides thrill in final game with PawSox

April 18, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The good news coming out of McCoy Stadium on Thursday afternoon was that rehabbing Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who had struggled at the plate in his first five games with the Pawtucket Red Sox, smacked a home run leading off the sixth inning of the PawSox’s game against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
But aside from that, and a four-run rally in that inning by the PawSox that tied the contest at 5-5, there wasn’t much else to smile about on the homefront.

PawSox top Lehigh Valley; Ortiz is 0-for-4 again

April 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET — At this stage of his rehab assignment, David Ortiz is more concerned about feeling good when he steps out of the batter’s box as opposed to actual results.
The Red Sox star came out of Wednesday’s contest admitting that his injured heels are doing just fine. He finished hitless in four at-bats as Pawtucket bid adieu to a two-game losing streak with a 6-1 triumph against Lehigh Valley.
