PAWTUCKET â€“ The Pawtucket Red Sox, already off to its finest start to a season in club history, seemed poised to move to 10-1 after holding a 3-1 cushion through seven innings on Monday night.
But righty reliever Chris Carpenter surrendered the Lehigh Valley IronPigs five runs in the top of the eighth, and the PawSox ultimately suffered an 8-3 International League-North beatdown before 3,849 fans at McCoy Stadium.
WOONSOCKET â€” A walk-off win that results in Woonsocket Highâ€™s first triumph of the season. That was the narrative of the Villa Novansâ€™ come-from-behind performance on Monday.
You hate to associate â€śmust winâ€ť with a game that takes place during the second week of the regular season. Standing at 0-2 in Division I-North and 0-3 overall, Woonsocket understood that halting the slide was imperative against a St. Raphael outfit that was seeking to maintain its pristine ways.

Cumberland High School running Coach Tom Kenwood had believed Monday would be like any other Patriots Day when he took a bunch of his team members to Wellesley to watch runners in Boston Marathon pass by.
Patriots Day, after all, has always been a good day to visit Boston for a chance to see runners in the cityâ€™s historic Marathon and maybe to see the Red Sox play or take the kids to a museum.
But the explosion of bombs at the finish line for the marathonâ€™s 117th running changed all that while leaving thousands on the marathon course and people in general wondering why.
