ALLENTOWN, Pa. â To Josh Reddick, it must seem as if the pitcher is throwing beach balls. The PawSox outfielder is that locked in at the plate.
Reddick continued his offensive tear Thursday night, victimizing Lehigh Valley for two home runs in Pawtucketâs 11-8 triumph at Coca-Cola Park. He has now homered in four consecutive games as Reddick blasted his seventh and eighth round trippers at the expense of the IronPigs. Dating back to last season Reddick has amassed 18 home runs in 53 Triple-A contests.
Buddy Hausmann knows Ryan Kalish, which is why he dubs the Red Sox outfield prospect, âmy younger brother.â

LINCOLN â When Brian McKinnon received a letter from North Kingstown Postmaster Phil Picott back on Friday, April 1, he first wondered if the contents were some kind of April Fool's Day joke.

He re-read the letter, addressed to his 10-year-old daughter, renowned soprano Alexis Clare McKinnon, and still had his doubts.
