PawSox’s Tamburro: Lavarnway’s worth watching

August 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The topic was Ryan Lavarnway and the most prolific home run hitters to ever to suit up for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

August 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET — The Connie Mack Baseball League has always taken a back seat to American Legion baseball during the summer months. And that’s too bad because there are some good players performing in relative anonymity inside the 12-team Rhode Island organization.
Elmwood Sports, which features players from Pawtucket and Central Falls, showed off some of its talent during a 2-0 victory over West Warwick in a first-round playoff game on Monday evening at McConnon Field. Bryan Quinlan knocked in both runs to back Andrew Larson’s shutout pitching.

Lars Anderson reflects on 'almost' trade

July 31, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Lars Anderson made four trips to the plate Sunday, every one of them transpiring in a Pawtucket Red Sox uniform.
For someone who spent Saturday night bidding farewell to teammates and contemplating a future in Oakland, Anderson spent most of Sunday morning trying to make sense of the unstable trade winds that had rocked his universe. One minute the first baseman was standing in the batter’s box in McCoy Stadium. Then came word that Anderson was involved in a trade that would have sent starting pitcher Rich Harden to Boston.

Louisville rolls over PawSox

July 31, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Not even the nifty baserunning maneuver that Ryan Lavarnway pulled off the eighth inning could yield a smile on the face of PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler.
Truth be told, Lavarnway’s ability to avoid the tag while sliding into second base represented the lone highlight in Pawtucket’s 7-2 loss to Louisville Sunday afternoon. The power-hitting catcher had his eyes on second base after lining a bullet down the left field line. The throw from Bats leftfielder Felix Perez was there with plenty of time to spare, but Lavarnway was able to dance around the tag and get a hand on the bag.

Chris Valaika and Mike Costanzo followed with singles to put runners at first and third- still with two outs. Louisville's ninth batter, Kristopher Negron, followed Costanzo's base-hit with an RBI single to make it 3-2 Bats and that was the last run scored in the ballgame by either side.
