PAWTUCKET â€“ The Pawtucket Red Sox â€“ as well as Boston â€“ now holds its collective breath regarding the left shoulder of outfield prospect Ryan Kalish.
Kalish make a diving grab to his left to rob Syracuseâ€™s Michael Aubrey of a surefire base hit in the second inning of Thursdayâ€™s 14-0 matinee massacre of the Chiefs. Replays showed that the center fielder jammed his shoulder as he hit the turf and rolled over. Teammates quickly huddled around their fallen comrade as Kalish remained on the ground for several minutes.
By the time the PawSox return home a week from Saturday, April will all but be a memory. With that in mind, here are some early-season observations/thoughts about the local club.
Josh Reddick saw his miserable start at the plate last season cost him a chance to get up to Boston far sooner than as a September call-up. As his batting average plummeted to unimaginable depths â€“ it stood at .189 on May 30 â€“ Reddick watched as Daniel Nava and Ryan Kalish were summoned to the big leagues.
PROVIDENCE â€” When youâ€™re on a roll like Lincoln High, things just seem to fall into place.
The Lions did their best work in the latter innings Thursday, scoring three runs apiece in the sixth and seventh innings to best La Salle Academy, 8-5. At 7-0, Lincoln stands tall amongst the Division I-North hierarchy. In fact, the Lions are one of just two teams in the league to sport such a glittering mark, North Kingstown being the other.
