Saints fall to Mounties, 5-2

May 5, 2011

WOONSOCKET --- Winning close games hasn’t been a strong point for Mount St. Charles Academy this year, but on Thursday afternoon, the Mounties found a way to take a tight battle with St. Raphael Academy.
The Mounties broke a 2-2 tie with three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and received a strong outing from senior pitcher Collins Uttermann to down the Saints, 5-2, in their Division I-North meeting.
The victory was a much-needed one for the host Mounties, who raised their record to 5-7 and came into the contest with losses in four of their last six games.

Lincoln's DeSimone now has 75 goals this season

May 4, 2011

LINCOLN --– Lacrosse is a game where goals are often scored in large numbers and multiple tallies by any one individual is not uncommon.
But for Lincoln High junior Jillian DeSimone this spring, it just may be bordering on the ridiculous.
DeSimone has averaged more than eight goals per outing in nine league games for the Lions in Division II. On Wednesday, it was status quo for the high-scoring attack as she netted 10 scores – all coming in the first half – to lift the unbeaten Lions to a rather routine 22-13 decision over North Providence at Ferguson Field.

Navarro joins PawSox's walking wounded

May 4, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The in-game injuries keep piling up for the Pawtucket Red Sox. Promising player Yamaico Navarro became the latest casualty Tuesday afternoon, joining an ever-expanding list of PawSox bitten by the injury bug.
Navarro immediately grabbed his left side after a bunt single in the first inning, giving off the vibe that something wasn’t quite right. Those suspicions were confirmed when Nate Spears replaced Navarro in right field in the top of the second.

Mud Hens put away PawSox again

May 3, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Red Sox are exercising supreme caution with Felix Doubront. After missing most of spring training with elbow tightness in his pitching elbow and beginning the season pitching exclusively out of Boston’s bullpen, the promising left-hander finds himself in the midst of building up his pitch count.
The process continued Tuesday as Doubront threw 64 pitches, which represents a 14-pitch improvement over his previous start. The alarming sign is that Doubront was only able to provide 3 1/3 innings in Pawtucket’s 7-2 matinee loss to Toledo.

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.
