PAWTUCKET â€“ The Pawtucket Red Sox are on the type of roll that has not been seen in these parts in quite some time.
True, the PawSox won eight straight games last August, but the team was far removed from playoff contention at that point. The winning streak Pawtucket currently enjoys â€“ itâ€™s now five games after Tuesdayâ€™s well-executed 3-1 win against Syracuse â€“ lends credence to the idea that the 2011 season could be different from last couple of campaigns, which saw the locals spend most of the summer playing out the string.
PAWTUCKET â€“ Theo Murray wasnâ€™t completely sure what he was going to get out of Chris Messier, his starting pitcher for Tuesdayâ€™s game against Shea. The reason for concern on the part of the Tolman head coach seems justified, especially since Messier was forced to leave his last start with arm soreness.
For the second time in as many days, a signed PC recruit has been relieved of his commitment.
Tuesday saw new Providence College coach Ed Cooley grant Kyan Anderson, a 5-foot-11 point guard from Fort Worth, Texas, his release of his signed letter-of-intent. The release of Anderson and Markus Crider, the second member of ex-coach Keno Davisâ€™ incoming class for 2011, means the Friars as of this moment have zero incoming freshmen for next season.
