SRA baseball team bows to North Providence, 4-2

April 17, 2013

PAWTUCKET — Minutes after St. Raphael Academy had suffered a 4-2 Division I defeat to previously winless North Providence High at Vets Park early Wednesday afternoon, veteran head coach Tom Sorrentine stood by the first-base line, trying to wrap his thoughts around what had just transpired.
Think of it: Senior southpaw Zach Mitsmenn scattered only six hits and three walks while whiffing a whopping 11, but still took the loss and, incredibly, fell to 1-1.

PawSox with Mass. roots react to Boston Marathon tragedy

April 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — For members of the PawSox family with Massachusetts blood running through their veins, the horrific and tragic events that marred the Boston Marathon hit particularly hard.
“It’s a special day for race fans and baseball fans; there’s a (Boston Bruins) game at night. It’s a great time for the town,” explained manager Gary DiSarcina, a native of Malden, Mass. and current resident of Plymouth. “When you least expect it, that’s when these things happen.”

Ortiz goes 0-for-4 in PawSox's loss to Lehigh Valley

April 16, 2013

PAWTUCKET — What David Ortiz is attempting to do is adhere to spring-training protocol.
The question is, will the Red Sox slugger be able to get everything ironed out over eight or so at-bats in the coming days with the Pawtucket Red Sox? In 2010, Ortiz received 62 at-bats in spring training and equaled the total the following year. In 2012, he collected 57 Grapefruit League at-bats.

Lincoln survives close call with Mount in 6-5 win

April 16, 2013

WOONSOCKET — In an impressive 26-game win streak that dates back to its season opener a year ago, Lincoln has experienced only a handful of close games that not only tested the team’s mettle, but also presented some anxious moments for its players, coaches, and fans.
But while most of those tight contests were decided by three or more runs, only one was a one-run nailbiter — Tuesday afternoon’s chilly Division I affair against host and longtime foe Mount St. Charles.

IronPigs cool off PawSox; Ortiz late scratch with heel pain

April 15, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox, already off to its finest start to a season in club history, seemed poised to move to 10-1 after holding a 3-1 cushion through seven innings on Monday night.
But righty reliever Chris Carpenter surrendered the Lehigh Valley IronPigs five runs in the top of the eighth, and the PawSox ultimately suffered an 8-3 International League-North beatdown before 3,849 fans at McCoy Stadium.

Saints walk off with tough loss against Villa Novans

April 15, 2013

WOONSOCKET — A walk-off win that results in Woonsocket High’s first triumph of the season. That was the narrative of the Villa Novans’ come-from-behind performance on Monday.
You hate to associate “must win” with a game that takes place during the second week of the regular season. Standing at 0-2 in Division I-North and 0-3 overall, Woonsocket understood that halting the slide was imperative against a St. Raphael outfit that was seeking to maintain its pristine ways.

McGair: Plenty of blame to go around in R.I. high school football officials saga

April 14, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

There’s plenty of blame to go around now that a Massachusetts group has been given the responsibility to assign, evaluate and train officials for Ocean State-based games.
It’s the result of an embarrassing fallout exposing unfortunate and regrettable decisions made by all involved parties in the saga over the fate of Rhode Island high school football officials.

Bachand makes long-distance running a fun, weekend affair

April 14, 2013

PAWTUCKET --- It’s been said time and time again that life begins at 40, but in Linda Bachand’s case, running careers can also begin at that age.
Four years ago, Bachand, a 44-year-old detective and 18-year veteran of the Pawtucket Police Department, stumbled upon a health and wellness expo with a co-worker during a work conference in Florida.
The expo was being held in conjunction with a nearby marathon that was scheduled that weekend, and when Bachand, who was looking to kill time, toured the expo, something inside her clicked.

Ortiz continues to pile up positive results for red-hot PawSox

April 13, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The story on Saturday afternoon wasn’t so much that the Pawtucket Red Sox assembled a mammoth sixth-inning rally to snag a 7-1 Game 1victory over the Rochester Red Wings at McCoy Stadium, but instead that David Ortiz played a key role in it.
The 37-year-old designated hitter, on a 20-game rehab stint with Pawtucket after suffering a right Achilles’ injury in a triumph over the Chicago White Sox last July 16, delivered a two-run ground single to right to help his club extend its lead to 4-1 – and continue Pawtucket’s finest-ever start to a season.
