Thompson, Pressel wow fans before U.S. Women’s Open

June 24, 2013

BARRINGTON – To say that Lexi Thompson has a busy week ahead doesn’t exactly paint the entire picture.
Then again, Morgan Pressel isn’t exactly idling away the hours herself.
Even though Thompson, a rising star on the LPGA Tour, has an eye on the U.S. Women’s Open that’s scheduled for later this week on Long Island’s Sebonack Golf Club, the 18-year-old was dead set on coming to Rhode Island Country Club to participate in the CVS Caremark Charity Classic for the second straight year.

Pennsylvania runner dominates inaugural BVP 5K

June 22, 2013

CUMBERLAND — Zach Hoagland came a very long way to run in Saturday morning’s inaugural Blackstone Valley Prep 5K, but that didn’t prevent the Hatfield, Penn. native from feeling right at home on The Monastery’s challenging 3.1-mile trail course.

Errors hurt Upper Deck in 7-2 loss to N.P. Post 29

June 22, 2013

NORTH PROVIDENCE — At such an early hour, it seemed like many of the players were sleepwalking during Saturday morning’s game between Upper Deck Post 86/14 and the North Providence Post 29 Senators at North Providence High.
Between Post 86/14 and the Post 29 Senators, the two teams combined for 11 walks and four errors in the field. However, despite the sloppy play, one team came away the winner, and it was the Senators who cruised to their second consecutive victory over Post 86/14 in convincing fashion, 7-2.

Red Sox think top prospect Bogaerts catches on fast

June 21, 2013

PAWTUCKET -- On a late March day in Fort Myers, Fla., Xander Bogaerts could have accepted what the lineup card stipulated and left it at that.

The Red Sox prospect and now the newest member of the PawSox, however, was comfortable enough in his own skin to approach the powers-that-be and show his eagerness and enthusiasm for the game he is paid to play.

According to one staff member, the sequence helped cast the player in a whole new light.

Local flavor at Northeast Amateur

June 20, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE — Bobby Leopold would have loved to compete in more amateur tourneys this spring, but just couldn't find the time.
On December 10, he and his wife, Taylor, became proud new parents of Grayson Robert, now a bouncing six-month-old boy, so – naturally – most of his days, and of course nights, are devoted to his baby and work.

Cumberland's Randall shoots 70 on Day 1 of Northeast Amateur

June 19, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – Regrets? Every golfer has some upon the round’s conclusion.

The ones that Jamison Randall expressed followed his one-over 70 performance on Day 1 of the Northeast Amateur Invitational didn’t equate to the Cumberland lad singing the blues. Had the golf gods been kinder, perhaps Randall’s Wednesday score would have been closer to the low number Brazil’s Rafael Becker posted – a minus-seven 62 that featured an eye-popping eight birdies.

PawSox' DiSarcina: Honesty’s best policy with player moves

June 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Never has a trip to the principal’s office been more soothing and reassuring.

Score one for PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina for putting out the fire before it engulfed the clubhouse he oversees. There was a delicate situation that needed to be addressed with several Pawtucket players, and DiSarcina handled every last conversation with aplomb.

“That’s what the job of a manager is. You have to manage those people,” stated DiSarcina matter-of-factly.

Lincoln revels in another perfect softball season, state title

June 19, 2013

LINCOLN – Casie Beauchemin, Lincoln High's heralded junior right fielder, sat back on a bench in front of the school early Wednesday afternoon trying to convey how incredible it felt to be a part of a team that not only captured two consecutive state Division I titles, but did so with an unblemished 43-0 mark.

Cumberland's Randall ready to tackle links at Northeast Amateur

June 18, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – How Jamison Randall landed a coveted spot in this week’s Northeast Amateur Invitational can be traced back to last summer’s noteworthy accomplishment on the links.

For the Cumberland High alumnus and junior-to-be at Virginia’s Old Dominion University, winning the R.I. Stroke Play Championship was akin to feasting one’s eyes on a golden ticket after opening a Wonka bar.

McGair: Carbo unloads on PED use in baseball

June 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Bernie Carbo assumed custody of his grandson when he was two. This same lad has matured into a 14-year-old with big-league hopes, no doubt fueled by a grandfather who authored one of the most memorable home runs in Red Sox lore.
