LINCOLN -- Southpaw Kyle Marrapese hurled four-plus innings of superb relief and teammate Dominic Cunha went 2-for-2 with a double, walk, three RBI and two runs scored on Sunday night.
With that and more, the Lincoln All-Stars snatched an easier-than-expected 13-2 victory over Cumberland National in the R.I. Little League District IV Tournamentâ€™s title tilt at Randy Hien Field late Sunday night.
In the process, Lincoln inked its return to the state tourney, and will begin play on Saturday at Cranston Westernâ€™s home.
(Editorâ€™s note: This is the latest in a series of weekly reports about the new city of Central Falls, now clear of bankruptcy and proceeding anew to provide for its residents.)
CENTRAL FALLS â€“ People come from all over the country â€“ indeed, from all over the world â€” to visit Federal Hill in Providence and they come largely for the fine Italian restaurants that line Atwells Avenue.
LINCOLN â€“ In the pantheon of table games, they say craps offers the well-schooled gambler with a head for numbers the best chance of beating the odds.
But on a busy night when chips are flying around an exotic mix of mind-boggling games with names like Spanish 21 and Pai Gow Poker, this may be the safest bet in the house: somebodyâ€™s trying to rig the system.
Thatâ€™s where Detective Lt. John Flaherty comes in. The 23-year veteran of the state police is in charge of the new Gaming Enforcement Unit, created to squeeze cheating and corruption out of the table game business at Twin River.
