PAWTUCKET â These No. 2 pitchers looked an awful lot like No. 1s.

PAWTUCKET â The good news coming out of McCoy Stadium on Tuesday night was that Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks kicked off his rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox on the right foot â with five innings in the field and a 1-for-2 effort at the plate with a walk.
The bad news was that the PawSox fell victim to a pair of rallies by the Charlotte Knights in the fifth and sixth innings and were never able to pick up a clutch hit when they needed one, and as a result, the hosts came out on the losing end of a 5-1 score.
PROVIDENCE â Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin announced that John Rainey, 54, of Cumberland, was found guilty Tuesday by a Superior Court jury on two counts of first-degree child molestation and one count of second-degree child molestation.

PAWTUCKET â Not only is Michelle Depot a hardworking educator, she is also a good communicator and a âjoiner.â That winning combination earned the Flora S. Curtis Elementary School third grade teacher the title of âPawtucket Teacher of the Year.â

PAWTUCKET â Students at the Nathanael Greene Elementary School at 285 Smithfield Ave. returned to class as planned on Tuesday after work was done to reinforce or remove loosened ceiling material.
