Punchless PawSox fall to Charlotte 2-1 despite pitching performances

June 15, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Despite an early lead and a dominating five-inning performance from Felix Doubront (see related story), the PawSox couldn’t close out Charlotte on Father’s Day.

Left-hander Drake Britton came on in the ninth with Pawtucket guarding a 1-0 lead they had held since their first turn at bat. Britton got the Knights’ Matt Davidson to foul out to first to start the inning, but yielded a ground single to left to Matt Tuiasosopo. The Sox then caught a break as Tyler Saladino botched a sacrifice bunt attempt and fouled out to catcher Christian Vazquez.

PawSox’ Boles, Shaw express gratitude for having pro baseball-experienced dads show them the way

June 14, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Professional baseball was a way of life for Kevin Boles and Travis Shaw long before they reached their respective posts with the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Both have their fathers to thank for lighting the way, giving them a model for understanding the game’s finer points. There’s no substitute for having a dad who understands the baseball culture because he’s lived and experienced it.

Shakeup at the top: Saunders is no longer AD at SRA

PAWTUCKET — In rather brisk fashion, the winds of change have swept through the top tier of the athletic department at St. Raphael Academy.

Doubront's 'okay' in rehab start with PawSox

June 10, 2014

PAWTUCKET — To say that Felix Doubront was merely okay in his rehab outing for the PawSox on Tuesday would be a fair and accurate assessment.
There were times when the lefthander appeared in control, mainly when he utilized his changeup and curveball. His velocity, however, suggested a pitcher who was content with the idea of keeping things under wraps – at least for now.
It all added up to a 4.2-inning stint where he was charged with two runs on six hits – all of which were struck with authority – as Pawtucket rallied to knock off Louisville in 10 innings, 4-3.

Doubront's ready for today's rehab start with PawSox

Hernandez flirts with no-hit bid in PawSox's victory over Bats

June 8, 2014

PAWTUCKET — It took one of the top hitters in the National League to ruin what would have been one of the most memorable afternoons of Pawtucket Red Sox southpaw Chris Hernandez’s career.
Hernandez carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning of Sunday afternoon’s contest against the Louisville Bats, only to watch rehabbing Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto break it up with a leadoff single.

PawSox don’t want young newcomer Betts to suffer from information overload

June 8, 2014

PAWTUCKET — With a look of determination on his face, Mookie Betts tried to make sense of the scouting report devoted to the Louisville starting pitcher the PawSox faced on Sunday afternoon.

Mind you Pawtucket did not face your garden-variety Triple-A hurler, hence why the information provided to the club’s hitters was a bit more elaborate. In Chien-Ming Wang, we’re talking about a 34-year-old right-hander who once posted back-to-back 19-win seasons for the New York Yankees and has eight years of big-league service time on his résumé.

Gingras' fourth-round KO of Velazquez brings him New England light heavyweight championship

June 8, 2014

LINCOLN — Rich Gingras remembers all too well the first time he sported a New England championship belt around his waist.
It lasted all of two minutes.
Last summer, after a marquee matchup with Providence’s Vladine Biosse for Biosse’s super middleweight title at Twin River went to the judges’ cards, it was announced that Gingras had won the championship, winning by a slim margin on two of the three cards.
