Richmond residents try to stem the rising tide

April 23, 2014

RICHMOND–When the town council retired to executive session on April 15 to discuss potential litigation in the town of Richmond versus Aurelia Russell, Dennis McGinity had more pressing things on his mind - namely the rising tide around his home on KG Ranch Road.

“In 2010 DEM said there were eight to 10 million gallons of water surrounding my home,” McGinity said, showing pictures of a waterline on his walls over 4 feet high. “If you go by right now you’ll see probably three million gallons, I’ve been pumping for days.”

Rebels cruise to win over Pilgim

April 23, 2014

WAKEFIELD–Starting pitcher Tom Kazounis took the mound Friday afternoon for the Rebels as they looked to win back to back games for the first time this season. The Rebels came into the contest alternating wins and losses for the first five league games, posting a record of 3-2 and would face a struggling Pilgrim squad who had lost two straight and compiled a 2-3 record on the young season. Kazounis got off to a slow start allowing a leadoff double to Brendan Paiva, who would later score on a two-out, RBI single to left by the cleanup hitter, Chris Ray. The Patriots would not score again until the sixth inning when the game was already well out of reach.

Rams battle back at Beck

April 23, 2014

KINGSTON — It has not been a pretty start to The University of Rhode Island’s baseball season. Time and time again, the Rams have fallen to opposing teams in messy games with lopsided scores. Rams coach Jim Foster has been adamant that the team doesn’t lack ability or heart, but rather experience and deep understanding of game theory. At the root, it would appear that the team’s youth is keeping Rhody low on the scoreboard, though not in spirits.

Mariners sail to mercy rule victory over Rogers

April 23, 2014

NARRAGANSETT — Everybody loves a win for the home team, but baseball just isn’t as exciting when the game is a slaughter. That was exactly the case when Narragansett’s boys hosted visitor Rogers at Sprague Park on Monday afternoon. The Mariners took an early seven run lead in only the first inning, which lasted nearly a half hour, and showed the Vikings no mercy until Rhode Island Interscholastic League rules dictated they must. Narragansett and Rogers called it quits in the fifth inning when the score hit and all too easy 15-3 final.
