Kenny Hobson allowed seven hits, fanned seven, walked four and stroked a single and an RBI triple as Central Falls shaded Pawtucket Vocational 6-5 for the Bluejacket­s first Northern Division victory of the campaign. Bob Fanning and Billy DeGoes cracked three singles each and Hobson and Joe Hughes tallied twice. Bill Ineson and Dave Bethel combined for four hits, two RBI and one run scored to pace the Vokes.


Jack Stratton, who had “saved” the game with two great plays in the field, won it with a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to lead Saint Raphael Academy to a 4-3 thriller over Middletown at McCoy Stadium. Mike Szluck went all the way on the mound for the Saints tossing a five-hitter, whiffing eight and allowing only one walk, while aiding his own cause with two singles. Brian Buonanni tallied two of the four SRA runs.


Kenny Knapp fired a one-hitter, struck out 10, walked two and scored one run to spark Central Falls to a 2-0 whitewash over Pawtucket West in a sharp Metro Division mound duel. The Rangers’ tough-luck loser sophomore Ron Goode was touched for just four hits, whiffed 10, walked four and allowed only one earned run. Steve Long drilled an RBI single and Paul Fournier chipped in with a double for the Warriors, while Alan Klapman broke up Knapp’s bid for a no-hitter with a fifth-inning single.
