EAST PROVIDENCE â€“ Last yearâ€™s Northeast Amateur champion, Joseph Bramlett, is playing on the PGA Tour.
The top-ranked amateur in this yearâ€™s field â€“ Peter Uihlein â€“ won the U.S. Amateur championship last summer. His top-ranked status among world amateurs only makes him the hunted instead of the hunter in this yearâ€™s 50th Northeast Amateur Invitational scheduled for June 22-25 at Wannamoisett Country Club.
PROVIDENCE --- The Division I state title will come down to one game.
Cumberland High scored early and often and senior ace pitcher Bethany Paul continued her postseason brilliance on the mound in Mondayâ€™s championship round against Mount St. Charles Academy at Rhode Island College.
And the final result was a surprisingly-lopsided 15-3 conquest by the fourth-seeded Clippers that not only dealt the ninth-seeded Mounties their first loss of the double-elimination tournament, but set up tonightâ€™s 8 p.m. winner-take-all clash back at RIC.
PAWTUCKET â€“ The Pawtucket Red Sox's latest acquisition, catcher Ryan Lavarnway, had a strong debut Monday night against the Charlotte Knights. The 23-year-old product out of Double-A Portland had a pair of doubles and also rifled out a base-stealer in the fifth inning.
Unfortunately on this night, his new team couldn't bring home the win.
The Knights converted four-double plays and had a fine effort out of righthander Joe Bisenius to earn a 4-1 victory over the PawSox (32-31) before 2,846 at McCoy Stadium.
