WOONSOCKET â€” On Tuesday, host Cumberland High pounded out 17 hits, including nine for extra bases, en route to a 14-0 â€śmercy ruleâ€ť pasting of Smithfield High.
Skipper Paul Murphyâ€™s crew didnâ€™t supply him and assistant Dale Oâ€™Dell with the same kind of offensive barrage 48 hours later at Mount St. Charles, but it did register eight hits to post a second consecutive â€śmercy ruleâ€ť triumph over the Mounties, this time an 11-0 verdict on Thursday.
