Tolman baseball team wins McGee/Scanlon Trophy, survives 9-7 slugest with neighboring rival Shea

May 13, 2014

PAWTUCKET — In what now will be an absolute annual clash between the city's two public high schools, Tolman and Shea delivered a strange, sloppy affair inside the Pawtucket Red Sox' long-standing home on Tuesday afternoon.
All told, the two squads combined for 11 errors (with three batters reaching on strikeouts gone bad), six wild pitches, two passed balls and three hit batsmen.
The contest also saw the Tigers jump out to a 6-1 cushion, then watch aimlessly as the Raiders tied it at 6-6 with a quartet in the top of the fourth.

Dufner headlines exceptional field for ‘Sweet 16’ edition of CVS Caremark Charity Classic

May 13, 2014

SMITHFIELD — For golf enthusiasts who remember Jason Dufner’s blistering performance on his way to capturing the 2013 PGA Championship, they know that the Auburn University product is a man of few words. He will respond to someone who acknowledges him with a polite nod, but don’t expect much more.

Intracity baseball trophy to be named for longtime Shea, Tolman ADs

May 13, 2014

PAWTUCKET – One cannot quantify with simple words what John Scanlon and Ray McGee mean to this city’s public school athletic programs.

So given recent developments, two coaches – one from Tolman and the other from Shea – feel that it’s time to begin a new tradition to preserve the legacies of these two dedicated and beloved athletic directors.

Following the final out of Tuesday’s Division II baseball game between the Tigers and Raiders at McCoy Stadium, the first-ever awarding of the “McGee/Scanlon Trophy” will be made to the winning team.

Tolman players, parents seek playoff ban reprieve

May 12, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Tolman High’s options to overturn the one-year playoff ban saddled to its football program have been completely exhausted.

Handy enters Central Falls Athletic Hall of Fame as player and coach, and with state championship team

May 11, 2014

CENTRAL FALLS — Pawtucket resident Joe Handy recalls with fondness – not to mention an edge in his voice – his years as a student-athlete at Central Falls High School.
But no particular moment meant more to him than the happenings of March 15, 1987. It was on that Saturday at the then-Providence Civic Center that Handy, the Warriors’ senior co-captain, helped deliver to his school its first-ever state basketball championship.

N.K. defeats Lincoln, remains unbeaten in softball

May 9, 2014

LINCOLN — As Lincoln High senior first baseman McKenzie Cavanaugh walked to her family car late Friday afternoon, she heaved one last grunt – “Aaarggh!” – at what had occurred just minutes before.
She then shook her head in dismay.
Cavanaugh had every reason for the sentiment, and – actually – had to be relating her teammates’ feelings after the Lions sustained a disgruntling 3-0 Division I loss to still-unbeaten North Kingstown at the Saylesville Elementary School diamond.

De La Rosa spins gem in PawSox's 5-3 victory over Toledo

May 8, 2014

PAWTUCKET — There was a time Thursday afternoon when Rubby De La Rosa didn’t appear as if he would make it out of the second inning.
Toledo’s three runs in the frame came as a result of five consecutive batters reaching with two outs. De La Rosa allowed RBI singles to Ben Guez and Daniel Fields, while the pitcher’s own throwing error enabled the Mud Hens to plate another run.

PawSox knuckleballer continues long road back from sports hernia surgery

May 8, 2014

PAWTUCKET — As a knuckleball pitcher, Steven Wright can get loose in a hurry.

As a 29-year-old man who is three months removed from undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia, the importance of taking things slow and steady cannot be understated.

From his vantage point, Wright earnestly believes that he’s thriving on this unconventional and demanding comeback trail. The Red Sox right-hander is not rehabbing a bum shoulder or a tender elbow. In effect, he had to re-train the muscles in the lower half of his body following a lengthy stretch of inactivity.

Workman, PawSox done in by long ball

May 7, 2014

PAWTUCKET --- As good as Brandon Workman was on Wednesday night – and he was very good – his counterpart was just a tad bit better.

Toledo Mud Hens starter Kyle Lobstein delivered his best outing of the year, limiting the Pawtucket Red Sox to four hits and a free pass in 6 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Hens’ bullpen kept the PawSox off the board the rest of the way in securing a 4-0 victory at McCoy Stadium.

Softball Clippers have no trouble with Tigers

May 7, 2014

PAWTUCKET --- Limited to five hits in each of its last two games, Cumberland broke out of its offensive slumber in a big way in the top of the first inning of its Division I contest against Tolman on Wednesday afternoon.

The Clippers scored six times on seven hits in that inning, and then watched ace pitcher Juliet Nelson and their defense contain the hard-hitting Tigers the rest of the way before busing out of Slater Park with a 10-1 triumph.
