Hendricken hands Lincoln another crossover loss

May 3, 2011

LINCOLN — Before a brutal, four-game stretch of crossover games, Lincoln High was sitting nicely atop the Division I-North standings with an unbeaten 8-0 mark.
It’s a little different now.
Facing some of the upper-echelon of squads from I-South and I-Central over the last week, the Lions suffered their third setback in the last four games Tuesday afternoon with a 5-1 loss to Bishop Hendricken at Chet Nichols Field. The Hawks belted out 11 hits and had a quality start from lefty Tim Pannone to improve to 9-2 for the spring.

PawSox pummel Toledo

May 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The PawSox continue to expose Yamaico Navarro to new positions. Monday night marked his second consecutive start in right field, becoming the fifth different position he’s seen time at this season. In the ninth inning Navarro moved over to center, meaning the only positions he’s yet to play are first base, catcher and pitcher.

Martinez lets agent do his talking

May 2, 2011

PAWTUCKET – To trace the path of how Victor Martinez became a Detroit Tiger, one can look back at last July’s trading deadline. The acquisition of Jarrod Saltalamacchia meant the Red Sox had their coveted catcher of the future, and with Martinez heading into free agency, the handwriting was on the wall that the 32-year-old stood a longshot to be back with Boston in 2011.

C.F. softballers stomp on Shea

May 2, 2011

CENTRAL FALLS --- Softball games between second-place and fourth-place teams that are separated by a game in the standings are usually close, competitive battles.
Monday afternoon’s Division III game between Central Falls and Shea was an exception.
The Warriors pounded out 14 hits and took advantage of an usually-high 11 errors by the Raiders on their way to a surprising 15-0 victory at Macomber Stadium that was stopped after 4½ innings by the mercy rule.

Kalish rebabs injury with reliable trainer

May 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Rehabbing an injury can prove very tricky for many athletes to navigate successfully. That’s why the athletic trainer is an important source, both in terms of offering moral support and aiding the athlete’s quest to return to action as soon as the body permits.
In terms of both critical areas, Ryan Kalish knows he’s in good hands with Jon Jochim, the trainer for the Pawtucket Red Sox. On Sunday morning, Kalish emerged from the trainer’s room with his left shoulder heavily bandaged, tangible proof that another therapy session under Jochim’s care had transpired.

Mud Hens defeat PawSox, Miller

May 1, 2011

PAWTUCKET – A lack of control continues to haunt Andrew Miller.
Throwing strikes was a major flaw for the lanky left-hander Sunday afternoon as Pawtucket dropped a 4-3 decision to Toledo before 3,512 at McCoy Stadium. Miller lasted just three-plus innings and was yanked by PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler after loaded the bases on two walks and a single in the fourth. The former sixth overall pick of the 2006 draft was the definition of off-target, throwing just 41 of his 84 pitches for strikes.

Local fencers enjoy spectacular careers

May 1, 2011

Pawtucket’s Daphne Homen and Cumberland’s Caroline Mattos are two local high school students making a name for themselves as fencers at the Rhode Island Fencing Academy and Club in Warren.
Homen, who attends the Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing Arts in Pawtucket, came to the club five years ago, worked her way up through the system, and now competes with the club team.

Tough day for Lincoln: N.K. wins, 10-5

April 30, 2011

WICKFORD – This is a game Lincoln High would soon rather forget.
North Kingstown High was clearly the better squad Friday afternoon in a 10-5 win at Lischio Field. The game was hailed as a matchup of Division I contenders, as both squads entered play with identical 7-1 records, good enough to lead their respective divisions. Instead of a tightly-played contest filled with drama and suspense, the Skippers and Lions plodded along, combining for seven errors and 10 walks. In the end, North Kingstown was the squad that wound up making fewer mistakes, even though Lincoln belted three home runs.

Reddick homers twice in PawSox victory

April 29, 2011

ALLENTOWN, Pa. – To Josh Reddick, it must seem as if the pitcher is throwing beach balls. The PawSox outfielder is that locked in at the plate.
Reddick continued his offensive tear Thursday night, victimizing Lehigh Valley for two home runs in Pawtucket’s 11-8 triumph at Coca-Cola Park. He has now homered in four consecutive games as Reddick blasted his seventh and eighth round trippers at the expense of the IronPigs. Dating back to last season Reddick has amassed 18 home runs in 53 Triple-A contests.

Ryan Kalish doesn't like to sit around

April 29, 2011

Buddy Hausmann knows Ryan Kalish, which is why he dubs the Red Sox outfield prospect, “my younger brother.”
“You want to make sure nothing is bothering him,” expressed Hausmann, the current head baseball coach and former assistant at Red Bank Catholic High School in New Jersey, where Kalish was a three-sport standout. “He won’t leave, whether it’s going to spring training or (or Athletes Performance in Arizona, a noted workout hangout for pro athletes) until he has dinner with my wife and I.”
