Mount downs Woonsocket in Div. II tennis playoffs

May 21, 2013

LINCOLN — Back on April 30, Mount St. Charles Academy head coach Sean McClelland had to face crosstown rival Woonsocket without three of his top four singles players, including senior tri-captain Jack Ricci, sophomore Mike Doody and junior Travis Connolly.
The first two were out due to illness and a back injury, respectively, while Connolly missed it for what McClelland termed “a disciplinary reason.”

Northmen hold off Spartans for 9-7 win

May 20, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD - Thankfully for North Smithfield, Scituate’s comeback ran out of innings.

Owners of a 6-0 lead after three innings of play, the Northmen had to hold off the resilient Spartans over the last four frames before coming away with a 9-7 win on Monday afternoon in their Division II-North encounter on the Northmen’s campus.

Bradley’s patience tested in rehab role with PawSox

May 20, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Jackie Bradley Jr. is no longer on the disabled list. However, the promising outfielder remains in a holding pattern.

At least for the foreseeable future, Bradley will be subjected to a schedule that the Red Sox put together in an effort to ease him back into full-time duty. He missed nearly two weeks earlier this month due to tendinitis in his right bicep, an injury that he first noticed during Pawtucket’s road trip to Rochester and Buffalo late last month.

Webster, PawSox stomp on Indians

May 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — It was deemed a terrific Sunday afternoon showdown between two of the premier pitching prospects in the minors today: Pawtucket Red Sox righty Allen Webster, called by Baseball America Boston’s No. 2 hill prize, and Indianapolis’ righthander Gerrit Cole, the Pirates’ top overall prospect.
The pairing didn’t disappoint, at least not early on. Through the first three frames, Webster had retired nine straight, the final four via whiff, while Cole had yielded a harmless, leadoff double to Brandon Snyder in the second.

McGair: BoSox season could hinge on McCoy dominos

May 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET – A Red Sox-themed game of dominos broke out at McCoy Stadium on Friday afternoon, with the playing surface stretching from the plush green grass in left field to the PawSox clubhouse.

As the Pawtucket hitters took their batting practice cuts, pitchers Franklin Morales and Andrew Bailey were positioned in front of the home team’s bullpen. The two injured arms were occupied with their long-toss program, though they made sure to stop every now again to check out the action in the batter’s box.

PawSox unable to complete comeback, fall to Braves

May 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — This comeback ran out of steam.
After falling behind by a 4-0 score and getting blanked for 7 2/3 innings by Gwinnett Braves righthander Omar Poveda, the Pawtucket Red Sox found a way to battle back in the last two innings off him and reliever Wirfin Obispo and nearly pull off an amazing victory.
But it wasn’t meant to be for the PawSox, who soon found themselves trying to battle back from a 6-1 deficit in their final swings and ended up with a 6-4 loss – their fourth defeat in their last five games – on Thursday night before a small gathering at McCoy Stadium.

PawSox' Hamilton deals with injured wrist; Chris Martin's scoreless streak up to 24 innings

May 15, 2013

PAWTUCKET – When the manager mentions “small crack in his bone” in the same sentence as the player’s wrist, it’s easy to dwell on the worst-case scenario.
Gary DiSarcina, however, stated that the Pawtucket Red Sox are in no rush to place first baseman/outfielder Mark Hamilton on the disabled list. On the same day that saw Hamilton honored as International League Hitter of the Week, the 29-year-old jammed his wrist while attempting to make a play in left field.

Extended preseason pleases R.I. college basketball coaches

May 15, 2013

You take what you can get.
With that mantra in mind, the NCAA’s decree to lengthen college basketball’s preseason is a welcome development in a sport where the run-up to the regular season barrels down on coaches and players like a fastbreak. Earlier this month, the governing body of collegiate athletics ruled that men’s programs can begin practicing six weeks prior to their first game.
The 2013-14 season is set to tip-off on Nov. 8, meaning teams can begin laying the groundwork in earnest on Sept. 27.
