Coutu's memory honored by Memorial 5K Run/Walk

May 27, 2012

PAWTUCKET — The location has changed and so has the weekend, but the Memorial 5K Run/Walk for PFC Kyle Joseph Coutu is returning to the area and eager to bring the community back together for a fun-filled day at Slater Park.
The event, which will take place on Sunday, June 3, at 9 a.m., will again pay tribute to Coutu, a 2009 graduate of Tolman High and football and wrestling captain and a U.S. Marine who was killed on Feb. 18, 2010 while supporting combat operations in Afghanistan.

Lincoln's Prachniak has West Chester University "9" dreaming

May 27, 2012

WEST CHESTER, Pa. — It’s been quite the debut for Jad Prachniak, West Chester University’s new baseball skipper.
Thanks to the tutelage of the former Lincoln resident, the Golden Rams closed their regular season with a stellar 42-10 slate, captured the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference championship and qualified for the NCAA Division II World Series after winning four straight games in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional Tournament.

Why OF J.C. Linares is still in Double-A Portland and not with the PawSox

May 26, 2012

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox received some much-needed outfield help Thursday. Despite putting up impressive numbers with Double-A Portland, J.C. Linares was not the player the Red Sox organization chose to promote.
Instead, Ronald Bermudez was the one summoned to Triple A. Selecting Bermudez over Linares may be viewed in some corners as a curious decision, especially when taking into account that the 27-year-old Linares is leading the Sea Dogs in hitting (.311), RBI (25), on-base percentage (.406) while ranking second among regulars in home runs (six) heading into Thursday’s action.

Falowo suffers stunning split-decision defeat

May 25, 2012

LINCOLN --- For Thomas Falowo, the drive from his front door in Pawtucket to the Twin River Event Center is less than 10 minutes.
But on Thursday night, the Manfredo’s Gym middleweight felt like he took a long flight to Texas to battle the Lone Star State’s Samuel Clarkson in a marquee six-round showdown of unbeaten prospects.

Lincoln nips SRA for Div. I playoff berth

May 25, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Win and you’re in the playoffs. Lose and feel the pain that goes with realizing that your season is kaput before Memorial Day.
With so much riding on Friday’s outcome, there was no time for either Lincoln or St. Raphael to get caught up with what potentially lies ahead. There would be no tomorrow for one team, nor would any partial credit be awarded as the Lions and Saints entered this pivotal final game of the regular season sporting identical 7-10 league records.

McDonald hopes rehab stint with PawSox is short

May 25, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Darnell McDonald knows that the Red Sox need outfield help in the worst way possible. That’s why the 33-year-old is holding out hope that his rehab assignment with the Pawtucket Red Sox is of the short and sweet variety.
“Hopefully it won’t be more than a few days; a lot of guys up there are out,” noted McDonald Friday prior to going 0-for-1 with a sacrifice fly while playing five innings in left field for the PawSox.

Tigers clinch second place in II-North with 3-0 verdict against Knights

May 22, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Tolman High had just earned an easier-than-expected 3-0 triumph over Central on Tuesday night, and with it virtually sealed up the second-place slot in Division II-North, but veteran head coach Neil Nachbar was hardly satisfied with his squad's overall performance.

SRA earns first-ever varsity win at Lincoln’s expense

May 22, 2012

PAWTUCKET — It's been a rough first season for the fledgling St. Raphael Academy program, but Tuesday night made it all worthwhile.
Maybe the number 13 is lucky, after all.
After that amount of losses, the Saints earned its first-ever varsity volleyball triumph with a 3-1 Division II-North decision over Lincoln High at the Alumni & Wellness Center, and the squad commemorated it appropriately.

PawSox turn away Tides, 5-3

May 22, 2012

NORFOLK, Va. — The Pawtucket Red Sox broke a 2-2 draw by scoring twice in the top of the seventh inning and held on for a rain-shortened 5-3 victory over the Norfolk Tides on Tuesday afternoon for a split of their four-game series at Harbor Park.
Jonathan Hee led off the seventh with a single to right and Pedro Ciriaco followed with a double to right to put runners in scoring position.
A groundout to shortstop by Jose Iglesias allowed Hee to speed home with the go-ahead run, and Ryan Lavarnway doubled to right to drive in Ciriaco.

Happy for you buddy: Pats’ QB Mallett elated that Middlebrooks can officially call himself a big leaguer

May 20, 2012

It was a textbook case where the idiom “turnabout is fair play” directly applies.
From Ryan Mallett’s vantage point, some friendly and well-intentioned payback was in order. It only seemed fitting, considering Mallett had pulled the necessary strings that paved the way for his childhood chum from Texas, Will Middlebrooks, to attend a couple of New England Patriots games last season – sitting in primo seats no less.
