PAWTUCKET â€“ Rehabbing an injury can prove very tricky for many athletes to navigate successfully. Thatâ€™s why the athletic trainer is an important source, both in terms of offering moral support and aiding the athleteâ€™s quest to return to action as soon as the body permits.

On Sunday morning, Kalish emerged from the trainerâ€™s room with his left shoulder heavily bandaged, tangible proof that another therapy session under Jochimâ€™s care had transpired.
PAWTUCKET â€“ A lack of control continues to haunt Andrew Miller.
Throwing strikes was a major flaw for the lanky left-hander Sunday afternoon as Pawtucket dropped a 4-3 decision to Toledo before 3,512 at McCoy Stadium. Miller lasted just three-plus innings and was yanked by PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler after loaded the bases on two walks and a single in the fourth. The former sixth overall pick of the 2006 draft was the definition of off-target, throwing just 41 of his 84 pitches for strikes.
Pawtucketâ€™s Daphne Homen and Cumberlandâ€™s Caroline Mattos are two local high school students making a name for themselves as fencers at the Rhode Island Fencing Academy and Club in Warren.
Homen, who attends the Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing Arts in Pawtucket, came to the club five years ago, worked her way up through the system, and now competes with the club team.
