Lincoln steals five bases in win over Smithfield

April 14, 2011

SMITHFIELD – Don’t tell Lincoln head coach Ed Hunt that the stolen base isn’t a handy tool.
The Lions qualify as a running bunch, witnessed by the five bags they swiped Thursday in a 9-1 win over Smithfield.
What makes the liberties Lincoln are taking on the base paths even more of a game-changing factor is that a run-producing hit came on the heels on every swiped base except the one Joe Yankee pulled off in the first inning.

Larson took the ball and then hurled a gem as he held the Purple to three hits the final six innings, lifting the Tigers to a 4-2 victory at Slater Park.

Nau: No reason for Red Sox fans to panic

April 13, 2011

The problem with Red Sox fans is they don’t know how to deal with slow starts. During the Terry Francona Era, their favorite team has never been worse than 28-24 on June 1. That mediocre beginning, which looks downright red-hot compared to this season’s 2-9 start, occurred in 2005. Yes, Boston rebounded to make the playoffs that year, bowing to eventual champion Chicago White Sox in the Division Series.

April 12, 2011

PAWTUCKET — It seems like a lifetime ago, but it was only four seasons ago when St. Raphael Academy was competing for the Division I championship and Tolman High was joining the fastpitch ranks and looking to build a successful Division III program.
