“I added on about six runs,” Dempster joked. “No, I think if you just make your pitches, it doesn’t matter where you’re pitching, what league you’re pitching in. It comes down to executing pitches. The more quality pitches you can execute, the better results you’re going to have.”

I wonder if Dempster would have a little bit of a different answer now after posting a 5.09 ERA in 12 starts for the Rangers after posting a 2.25 ERA in 16 starts for the Cubs.

Two days until hockey

Yes, the NHL is in a lockout but the Providence Bruins play their opener Friday at 7:05 p.m. when they host the Manchester Monarchs.

Faulk held on to football

A lot of talk has been about how Patriots running back Stevan Ridley has had a little trouble holding onto the football after he fumbled again late in Sunday’s game.

Former Patriots back Kevin Faulk, who officially retired yesterday, actually had some trouble holding on to the football early in his career with seven fumbles in his first two seasons (27 games).

However, Faulk fumbled just four times from 2001-11.

Astro athletes of week

Senior field hockey player Nicole Yannalfo and senior soccer player Ryan Williams earned Pinkerton athlete of the week honors for last week.

Yannalfo helped the Astros to a 2-0-1 week with wins over Nashua North and Bishop Guertin and a tie at Merrimack. She scored two goals in the victory over Nashua North and recorded an assist vs. BG.

In a victory over Nashua North, Williams recorded two goals and an assist.

Rookie of Week

Merrimack’s Kerry Phelan has been named the NE-10 Conference Rookie of the Week.

Phelan set a new school 5K record with a time of 18:43.19 at the New England Championships on Sunday.
