Cumberland Baseball | Clippers pull away from Townies, 7-0

May 22, 2015

CUMBERLAND – For five-plus innings, this Division I-B affair between Cumberland and East Providence highs was defined as a premier pitchers’ duel.

It sure didn’t end that way.

Guarding a skimpy 1-0 advantage entering the back half of the sixth, the Clippers exploded for six runs on six straight hits – four for extra bases – to coast to a 7-0 blowout triumph over the Townies before perhaps 70 fans at Tucker Field on Friday afternoon.

With it, CHS improved to 10-6 overall and, more importantly, 10-5 in I-B to solidify its second-place position behind division-leading North Kingstown.

North Smithfield Softball | ALPHABET SUPE: Pasquariello, Venkataraman star in 7-1 win

May 20, 2015


NORTH SMITHFIELD  –  North Smithfield High hadn’t played up to expectations for the better part of this Division II-North campaign, so veteran head coach Paul Mercier held a 30-minute team meeting after Tuesday afternoon’s practice.

He felt his Northmen were better than their 6-6 league record, and weren’t getting along as well as they could be.

After all, they were the Division I-North leaders, and were preparing to take on powerhouse Coventry, currently in a battle with South Kingstown for I-South supremacy, in a crossover tilt on Tuesday night.

Commentary | McGair: A fan first, late PawSox president Skeffington was a true lover of the sport

May 18, 2015


PAWTUCKET – Jim Skeffington may be remembered by some as the businessman who wanted to move the PawSox out of McCoy Stadium. That’s unfortunate because most of all, he was a fan with a lifelong passion for sports and the benefits they can bring a community.

Skeffington died suddenly Sunday night after a three-month stint as team president of the PawSox. His fandom was a side that not everyone got to see, as his brief tenure was marked by a busy process of transition and planning for the future.
