April 8, 2011

McGair: Boston may need some PawSox relief

April 8, 2011

The Red Sox have certainly provided plenty of grist for the mill. That’s what happens when you begin the season with unprecedented expectations (World Series or bust) only to stumble out of the gate with six straight losses. Agony doesn’t even begin to describe the early-season travails with your Boston baseball club.
We’re not about to declare that hope is lost, especially when you subtract six from 162 and end up with 156, which is how many games the Red Sox have left. Time is on their side.

University of Rhode Island-bound Ryan O’Dell went 3-for-4 to propel the Lions’ 11-hit assault, and Kyle Jackson’s two-run double in the first inning and Matt Sorkin’s two-run single in the third were the key hits for the visitors.

MSC softball team wins opener with Cumberland

April 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Cumberland High coach Marty Crowley believes he has a strong enough team to contend for a state title come mid-June.
But in his eyes, and perhaps most in Division I, the squad that everyone in the league should be concerned about is last year’s state runner-up Mount St. Charles Academy.
“Absolutely,” he said. “They went to the finals last year. They (basically) got everybody back. They should be the favorites to win the whole thing. They’re good.”

Bill Lee: At his core, he's still a pitcher

April 6, 2011

Lee came here on Wednesday to serve as keynote speaker at the annual “Welcome Home, PawSox” luncheon hosted by the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce. He walked into Kirkbrae Country Club’s dining area a few minutes before noon, dressed like a cowboy, his still-athletic frame topped off by a wide-brimmed hat that identified the former Red Sox pitcher as a man of great presence.
