PAWTUCKET â€“ Without hesitation, Kyle Weiland knew that if an opposing hitterâ€™s fly ball to center field could be caught, it would.
Che-Hsuan Lin is that reliable.
But when Weiland began the 2011 season with Triple-A Pawtucket, the right-hander was separated from his security blanket, the vacuum cleaner of an outfielder he had played with since 2009.
Much to Weilandâ€™s delight, they were reunited May 21, when Lin was promoted to Pawtucket from Double-A Portland.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Bobby Jenks proclaimed after working one scoreless inning in Pawtucketâ€™s 6-3 loss Friday night that heâ€™s sorted through the mechanical issues that dogged him earlier in the season.
PAWTUCKET --- Tolman High and Narragansett Highâ€™s pitching staffs looked every bit like they were working in their third playoff game in as many days on Friday afternoon.
Not only did both sides combine to use eight pitchers, but they also issued a whopping 27 walks, and that helped make their Division II losersâ€™ bracket game a marathon affair that lasted 2 hours and 40 minutes.
LINCOLN â€” Davies Tech junior Jorge Bonilla has a code he lives by, and that's to learn everything he can not only about his major interests, but new and exciting information as well.
That's why the Central Falls resident was so busy running around at the eighth annual Davies Community Showcase/Cabaret, held at the school Thursday night.
One minute, he played photographer, and the next, he had hustled to the Debate Club's table. Moments later, he stood at the Robotics Club table with classmate and fellow member Nate Hindman explaining how the six-wheeled â€śZeusâ€ť worked.

CENTRAL FALLS â€“ The city's Special Investigations Unit raided yet another brothel, this one at 34 Watson St., on Monday, and in the process arrested a city man and a New Jersey woman on respective charges of pandering and prostitution.
Police took into custody 27-year-old Steven Castillo, who hails from the city and is a Superior Court violator. Because of that violation from a previous delivery charge, he received a five-year sentence. He also is being held on $10,000 surety bail for the new count of pandering, and has a pre-arraignment conference slated for July 28.
CUMBERLAND â€“ From the time Derrick Watson was a mere six-year-old boy, his mother always taught him â€śNothing beats a failure but a try.â€ť
That's just one reason he's organized a community group called â€śThe Concerned Citizens of Valley Falls â€“ Save Our Post Office.â€ť
When he found out the Valley Falls Post Office indeed would shut its doors for business back on May 5, he immediately began working on an appeal.
