Lincoln's DeSimone now has 75 goals this season

May 4, 2011

LINCOLN --– Lacrosse is a game where goals are often scored in large numbers and multiple tallies by any one individual is not uncommon.
But for Lincoln High junior Jillian DeSimone this spring, it just may be bordering on the ridiculous.
DeSimone has averaged more than eight goals per outing in nine league games for the Lions in Division II. On Wednesday, it was status quo for the high-scoring attack as she netted 10 scores – all coming in the first half – to lift the unbeaten Lions to a rather routine 22-13 decision over North Providence at Ferguson Field.

Navarro joins PawSox's walking wounded

May 3, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The in-game injuries keep piling up for the Pawtucket Red Sox. Promising player Yamaico Navarro became the latest casualty Tuesday afternoon, joining an ever-expanding list of PawSox bitten by the injury bug.
Navarro immediately grabbed his left side after a bunt single in the first inning, giving off the vibe that something wasn’t quite right. Those suspicions were confirmed when Nate Spears replaced Navarro in right field in the top of the second.

Mud Hens put away PawSox again

May 3, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Red Sox are exercising supreme caution with Felix Doubront. After missing most of spring training with elbow tightness in his pitching elbow and beginning the season pitching exclusively out of Boston’s bullpen, the promising left-hander finds himself in the midst of building up his pitch count.
The process continued Tuesday as Doubront threw 64 pitches, which represents a 14-pitch improvement over his previous start. The alarming sign is that Doubront was only able to provide 3 1/3 innings in Pawtucket’s 7-2 matinee loss to Toledo.

Hendricken hands Lincoln another crossover loss

May 3, 2011

LINCOLN — Before a brutal, four-game stretch of crossover games, Lincoln High was sitting nicely atop the Division I-North standings with an unbeaten 8-0 mark.
It’s a little different now.
Facing some of the upper-echelon of squads from I-South and I-Central over the last week, the Lions suffered their third setback in the last four games Tuesday afternoon with a 5-1 loss to Bishop Hendricken at Chet Nichols Field. The Hawks belted out 11 hits and had a quality start from lefty Tim Pannone to improve to 9-2 for the spring.

PawSox pummel Toledo

May 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The PawSox continue to expose Yamaico Navarro to new positions. Monday night marked his second consecutive start in right field, becoming the fifth different position he’s seen time at this season. In the ninth inning Navarro moved over to center, meaning the only positions he’s yet to play are first base, catcher and pitcher.

Martinez lets agent do his talking

May 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET – To trace the path of how Victor Martinez became a Detroit Tiger, one can look back at last July’s trading deadline. The acquisition of Jarrod Saltalamacchia meant the Red Sox had their coveted catcher of the future, and with Martinez heading into free agency, the handwriting was on the wall that the 32-year-old stood a longshot to be back with Boston in 2011.

C.F. softballers stomp on Shea

May 2, 2011

CENTRAL FALLS --- Softball games between second-place and fourth-place teams that are separated by a game in the standings are usually close, competitive battles.
Monday afternoon’s Division III game between Central Falls and Shea was an exception.
The Warriors pounded out 14 hits and took advantage of an usually-high 11 errors by the Raiders on their way to a surprising 15-0 victory at Macomber Stadium that was stopped after 4½ innings by the mercy rule.

Kalish rebabs injury with reliable trainer

May 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Rehabbing an injury can prove very tricky for many athletes to navigate successfully. That’s why the athletic trainer is an important source, both in terms of offering moral support and aiding the athlete’s quest to return to action as soon as the body permits.
In terms of both critical areas, Ryan Kalish knows he’s in good hands with Jon Jochim, the trainer for the Pawtucket Red Sox. On Sunday morning, Kalish emerged from the trainer’s room with his left shoulder heavily bandaged, tangible proof that another therapy session under Jochim’s care had transpired.

Mud Hens defeat PawSox, Miller

May 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET – A lack of control continues to haunt Andrew Miller.
Throwing strikes was a major flaw for the lanky left-hander Sunday afternoon as Pawtucket dropped a 4-3 decision to Toledo before 3,512 at McCoy Stadium. Miller lasted just three-plus innings and was yanked by PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler after loaded the bases on two walks and a single in the fourth. The former sixth overall pick of the 2006 draft was the definition of off-target, throwing just 41 of his 84 pitches for strikes.

Local fencers enjoy spectacular careers

May 1, 2011

Pawtucket’s Daphne Homen and Cumberland’s Caroline Mattos are two local high school students making a name for themselves as fencers at the Rhode Island Fencing Academy and Club in Warren.
Homen, who attends the Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing Arts in Pawtucket, came to the club five years ago, worked her way up through the system, and now competes with the club team.

Tough day for Lincoln: N.K. wins, 10-5

April 29, 2011

WICKFORD – This is a game Lincoln High would soon rather forget.
North Kingstown High was clearly the better squad Friday afternoon in a 10-5 win at Lischio Field. The game was hailed as a matchup of Division I contenders, as both squads entered play with identical 7-1 records, good enough to lead their respective divisions. Instead of a tightly-played contest filled with drama and suspense, the Skippers and Lions plodded along, combining for seven errors and 10 walks. In the end, North Kingstown was the squad that wound up making fewer mistakes, even though Lincoln belted three home runs.

Reddick homers twice in PawSox victory

April 28, 2011

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – To Josh Reddick, it must seem as if the pitcher is throwing beach balls. The PawSox outfielder is that locked in at the plate.
Reddick continued his offensive tear Thursday night, victimizing Lehigh Valley for two home runs in Pawtucket’s 11-8 triumph at Coca-Cola Park. He has now homered in four consecutive games as Reddick blasted his seventh and eighth round trippers at the expense of the IronPigs. Dating back to last season Reddick has amassed 18 home runs in 53 Triple-A contests.

Ryan Kalish doesn't like to sit around

April 28, 2011

Buddy Hausmann knows Ryan Kalish, which is why he dubs the Red Sox outfield prospect, “my younger brother.”
“You want to make sure nothing is bothering him,” expressed Hausmann, the current head baseball coach and former assistant at Red Bank Catholic High School in New Jersey, where Kalish was a three-sport standout. “He won’t leave, whether it’s going to spring training or (or Athletes Performance in Arizona, a noted workout hangout for pro athletes) until he has dinner with my wife and I.”

Olga Fino ready for Cox Half Marathon race

April 28, 2011

CUMBERLAND – There will be more than 2,000 participants competing this weekend in the Cox Providence Rhode Races’ Half Marathon. Each one will have a goal; each one will have a reason for taking on such a challenging, endurance event.

East Providence beats Mounties in eight innings

April 27, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — This was a case of déjà vu that East Providence High liked and Mount St. Charles Academy didn’t.
Courtney DeCastro’s second walkoff hit of the season, a run-scoring single with two outs in the home half of the eighth inning, drove in younger sister Amy DeCastro with the run that helped the Townies grab a 2-1 victory over the Mounties in their Division I crossover affair at Pierce Field.

Cranston West hands Lincoln first loss

April 26, 2011

CRANSTON — The never-say-die attitude was there. So too were the late-game heroics that some have come to associate Lincoln High baseball with.
On a sun-splashed Tuesday afternoon, the end result went astray from the now one-beaten Lions. A valiant comeback bid was nullified thanks to Cranston West’s Alex Moretti’s two-out double with one on in the bottom of the seventh, lifting the Falcons to the 8-7 walk-off triumph. Moretti’s clutch knock touched down in the right-centerfield gap, chasing home catcher Jeff Diehl with the winning run.

Cumberland boys remain perfect in track

April 26, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Ask any of the girls’ coaches about who would win Tuesday’s Northern Division showdown between host Cumberland High and unbeaten squads Woonsocket and Central Falls and the response was the same.
They simply didn’t have a clue.
“This is going to be a close meet,” said Woonsocket coach Dan Richard midway into the competition. “I thought before the meet, plus or minus five points between all three schools.”

Cumberland's Randall aims for big spring on links

April 25, 2011

LINCOLN — Golf couldn’t have gone any better for Jamison Randall last summer.
During a magnificent, two-month stretch on the links, the Cumberland High senior captured three tournaments, winning the World Series of Junior Golf at Triggs G.C., the Rhode Island Golfers Association (RIGA) Junior Championships and the New England Junior Championships, taking that prestigious tourney in sudden death.

Clippers get clutch hits in 4-1 win over Townies

April 25, 2011

CUMBERLAND — Stranding runners on base has been a sore subject with Cumberland High this month, but on Monday afternoon, the Clippers were able to deliver some timely hits in their Division I crossover battle with East Providence High at Tucker Field.
Rebecca Geddes, Samantha Bertherman, and Bridget Connors each drove in a run during a four-run uprising in the home half of the fourth inning, and that rally, parlayed with the dominant one-hit pitching of senior ace Bethany Paul, helped the hosts grab a 4-1 victory.

Johnston rolls past Tolman

April 25, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Johnston High showed Tolman why it is undefeated in Division II action on Monday.
The Panthers improved to 8-0 with a 5-0 victory over Tolman in a well-played game that took less than two hours to complete at McCoy Stadium. Righthander Gian Bianchi scattered eight hits over six innings to pick up the win. Tolman starter Andrew Larson went the distance, scattering 13 hits and getting some fine defense from his infielders and outfielders.
