Seventh-inning rally helps Rochester top PawSox

April 22, 2014

PAWTUCKET — On a Tuesday night when Brandon Snyder crushed two dingers and righthander Rubby De La Rosa assembled a mound masterpiece, the Pawtucket Red Sox’s bullpen collapsed.
The result: An emotionally-draining – not to mention truly sad – 7-5 loss to the Rochester Red Wings before a bummed crowd of 3,070 at McCoy Stadium.
De La Rosa had been hurling a gem, yielding only three hits, an earned run and a walk while fanning seven.

For two area runners, finishing the Boston Marathon after not doing so last year would qualify as success

April 22, 2014

The bib numbers in the 30,000s and high 20,000s look awfully strange.

And the newly created fourth wave won’t start until at least 85 minutes after the first wave has crossed the starting line in Hopkinton.

But to Lincoln’s Poyee Oster, Pawtucket’s Linda Bachand, and the nearly 5,700 runners that did not finish last year’s Boston Marathon because of the terrorist attack, that means very, very little.

Getting another chance to return for the 118th running of this legendary race, and this time, finishing what they started, is the only thing that matters.

Patience a virtue for Victorino

April 21, 2014

PAWTUCKET – Never once did the thought of becoming the Red Sox’s everyday center fielder cross Shane Victorino’s mind. He was committed to playing right field, meaning someone else was going to have to fill the void created when Jacoby Ellsbury signed with the Yankees.

Initially, the plan coming out of spring training was to have Victorino flanked by newcomer Grady Sizemore with Jackie Bradley Jr. holding tight in the minors. Of course, those best-laid plans went awry when Boston placed Victorino on the disabled list prior to the first game of the 2014 season.

Here's who to keep an eye on at the Boston Marathon

April 20, 2014

If you’re looking to follow the Boston Marathon online today and keep track of the top residents from the Blackstone Valley, keep the numbers 319, 1991, and 5934 in mind.

They are the bib numbers that will be donned by Cumberland’s Jason Reilly, Pawtucket’s Brendan Doyle, and Cumberland’s Dave Constantino, who will be among the runners scattered in the first wave and looking to complete the 118th running of this legendary race in under three hours.
