Replays showed that the center fielder jammed his shoulder as he hit the turf and rolled over. Teammates quickly huddled around their fallen comrade as Kalish remained on the ground for several minutes.

Josh Reddick saw his miserable start at the plate last season cost him a chance to get up to Boston far sooner than as a September call-up. As his batting average plummeted to unimaginable depths – it stood at .189 on May 30 – Reddick watched as Daniel Nava and Ryan Kalish were summoned to the big leagues.

At 7-0, Lincoln stands tall amongst the Division I-North hierarchy. In fact, the Lions are one of just two teams in the league to sport such a glittering mark, North Kingstown being the other.

PawSox beat Syracuse for fifth straight win

April 19, 2011

PAWTUCKET – 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 – it’s now five games after Tuesday’s well-executed 3-1 win against Syracuse – 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.
