PAWTUCKET --- If Mount St. Charles learned anything about Tolman over the past six days, itâ€™s that the Tigers have plenty of pitching to go around.
Less than a week after Carlos Sanabria blanked Mount on four hits, the Tigers topped the Mounties with another four-hitter on Monday afternoon â€“ this time coming from starter Richie Marshall and reliever Joey Fernandes â€“ and parlayed that with a 14-hit assault to beat their Division II-North opponent, 8-3, at Slater Park.
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. --- The Pawtucket Red Sox bounced back nicely from their no-hit loss at home on Sunday by kicking off their eight-day road trip on Monday night with a 5-1 victory over the Gwinnett Braves.
The PawSox, who collected 10 hits to hand their hosts their ninth straight loss, used two of them to break out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, as Ryan Lavarnway collected a two-out single and Mark Hamilton followed with an opposite-field home run to left field.

LINCOLN â€“ It could be upwards of a month before residents are able to move back into a Front Street triple-decker that was heavily damaged by fire Sunday night, fire officials said yesterday.
Lonsdale Fire Chief Timothy Griffin said the 263 Front St. building sustained $75,000 to $100,000 in damages and that extensive repairs will be required before the seven tenants left homeless by the blaze are allowed back in.
All of the tenants are reportedly staying with family members, he said.
