Pawtucket's Chattelle seeks to defend MMA crown

April 12, 2012

LINCOLN — When fans last saw Todd Chattelle at the Twin River Event Center, it was last Nov. 18 and the Pawtucket native was being triumphantly carried from the octagon to the locker rooms on the shoulders of a few of his friends.
Chattelle has just recorded the biggest triumph of his 5½-year career with his first-ever submission on an unexpected guillotine chokeout of Brett Oteri of Dedham, Mass. 3:18 into their fight for the inaugural CES Mixed Martial Arts middleweight championship.

Clippers stay hot, belt Mounties

April 12, 2012

WOONSOCKET — On Tuesday, host Cumberland High pounded out 17 hits, including nine for extra bases, en route to a 14-0 “mercy rule” pasting of Smithfield High.
Skipper Paul Murphy’s crew didn’t supply him and assistant Dale O’Dell with the same kind of offensive barrage 48 hours later at Mount St. Charles, but it did register eight hits to post a second consecutive “mercy rule” triumph over the Mounties, this time an 11-0 verdict on Thursday.

No contest as softball Lions belt Clippers

April 11, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The softball seasons have passed and the names have come and gone, but one thing you could always count on year after year any time Lincoln and Cumberland played each other was a spirited, competitive duel -- a showdown that was usually going to be decided by one or two runs.
That’s what the small gathering of fans that braved the chilly weather at Wednesday afternoon’s Division I-North affair at Tucker Field expected from the two unbeaten rivals, but what they got was a shocking surprise.

Miscues come back to haunt Shea in loss to Wheeler

April 11, 2012

PAWTUCKET — It's hard to win when you make four errors.
Just ask Shea High head coach Dino Campopiano, whose club's mistake-prone ways allowed Wheeler School to escape Max Read Field with a 5-1 Division II-Central victory on Wednesday afternoon.
Still, fair is fair. John Snider, the Warriors' senior righty from Cumberland, proved to be stellar on the hill, yielding only five hits and three walks while fanning a whopping dozen (though he did toss a trio of wild pitches). He also helped himself with the bat, going 2-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored.

PawSox players weigh in on Guillen's comments

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tuesday morning saw a small group of PawSox players huddle around the clubhouse television as a contrite Ozzie Guillen attempted to move past the uproar he caused over supportive remarks the Miami Marlins manager made in reference to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Among those who sat and watched Guillen with great interest were Jose Iglesias and Luis Exposito. In fact, the pair stood side-by-side for roughly 10 minutes before Iglesias plopped himself down into a leather chair, his eyes clearly fixated on what Guillen was saying.

Ohlendorf, PawSox blank Lehigh Valley, 8-0

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Thanks to a pitching tip Ross Ohlendorf picked up from Josh Beckett, the Red Sox may very well have another starting option on their hands.
By his own estimation, Ohlendorf threw “10 or 12” cut fastballs over the course of the six shutout innings he tossed in Pawtucket’s 8-0 win against Lehigh Valley Tuesday afternoon.

Cumberland's 17-hit attack roughs up Smithfield

April 10, 2012

CUMBERLAND — It’s almost eerie how well Cumberland High struck the ball on Tuesday afternoon.
“We hit it pretty well in our second game against Moses Brown, and in the Injury Fund (tilt) against Woonsocket, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” explained senior righty Justin Patrick after the Clippers clubbed 17 hits – including nine for extra bases – in a 14-0 thrashing of still-winless Smithfield High at Tucker Field.

Andrew Miller poised to join PawSox after two successful rehab outings with Class A Greenville

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Finally, there’s some good news concerning Andrew Miller.
Barring any setbacks, the hurler expects to take the next step in his rehab and join the Pawtucket Red Sox at some point on the team’s upcoming nine-game road trip. Miller made his second of two appearances with Single-A Greenville Monday, seeking to build off of Saturday’s one-inning stint that featured no runs on two hits. He did just that, retiring all three batters he faced on two groundball outs and one strikeout.
“I felt healthy and that’s all I can ask for,” said Miller when reached Monday afternoon.
