Tolman continues to roll with 8-3 win over Mount

May 6, 2013

PAWTUCKET --- If Mount St. Charles learned anything about Tolman over the past six days, it’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 – this time coming from starter Richie Marshall and reliever Joey Fernandes – and parlayed that with a 14-hit assault to beat their Division II-North opponent, 8-3, at Slater Park.

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.

CENTRAL FALLS — With the recent Boston Marathon bombing tragedy, much attention has been paid to the “first responders” who sprang into action to aid the injured.

De La Rosa expects to see increase in workload

May 5, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Rubby De La Rosa has turned the corner with his pitching lately. As a result, the team’s harness on the young prospect is getting loosened.
After being subjected to a stringent pitch count during the first month of the season, the hard-throwing phenom is expected to throw in the neighborhood of 70-75 when he takes the mound for Pawtucket Monday night in Gwinnett. De La Rosa has been limited to around 50 pitches in his previous five starts, none of which have seen him toss more than three innings.

Brought on to nail down the final out, Beliveau preserved the Bulls’ combined no-hitter and secure a 2-1 victory over the PawSox on Sunday.

Ice cream warms the heart for many

May 4, 2013

PAWTUCKET — It’s a treat and a dessert and you can really have ice cream anytime. But there is something special about going to get ice cream at an ice cream stand or from a truck, even on a cool May evening.
Rod Florez, the General Manager of Palagi Brothers Ice Cream and Frozen Lemonade in Pawtucket, actually anticipates sales in late April and early May as some of the best for his business all season.
Palagi Brothers’ 25 trucks usually hit the streets on April 1 but were delayed this year by late winter weather and sales were still slower than usual this week, according to Florez.

The 23-year-old prospect delivered six innings of two-hit ball, striking out nine batters and walking none, to help the Pawtucket Red Sox produce a 4-1 victory over the Durham Bulls at McCoy Stadium.
Aside from a shaky third inning that saw Webster hit the first batter he faced and the Bulls collect both their hits and score their run, Webster was simply on top of his game.

May 2, 2013

Taking the mound for the first time in nine days, Aceves spun six shutout innings as Pawtucket belted Durham, 10-1. Though he issued four walks, Aceves allowed just two hits while striking out six. He ended up throwing 101 pitches, 57 of which went for strikes.
“I didn’t know how many pitches I threw,” said Aceves. “Nobody knows how pitches you’re going to throw (in a given outing). It’s unreal.”
