and picked up a save by retiring three of the four batters he saw. Smithfield scored its first run in the bottom of the second on a run- scoring single by Cameron Caprio and doubled its lead in the third on a sacrifice fly to center by Shunney, but Woonsocket stormed back in the fourth. A bloop single to right by Munger and a four-pitch walk to Greenless set the stage for Dante Yantin's RBI single to center. Shunney got the next batter to tap back to the mound, but Julius Perez then walked and Greenless scored the tying run on Jackson Poore's slow roller to second. Ty Chhourn then gave Woonsocket the lead by driving in Yantin with a sharp single to left. Woonsocket had a golden opportu- nity to add to its lead in the sixth, as back-to-back infield errors put runners in scoring position with no one out. But Shunney struck out the next two batters he faced and got his final one to ground out to third. In Woonsocket's tournament opener last Saturday morning, the all-star fell behind 3-0 in the bottom of the first inning on a bases-clearing double by Burrillville's Dylan Lafleur, but Woonsocket took over the rest of the morning and rolled to a 15-3 win. After a two-run single to center in the second by Dylan Nickerson cut Woonsocket's deficit to a run, the all-stars erupted for five runs in the fourth, two in the fifth, and six more in the sixth. Woonsocket belted 14 hits in the game, with Yantin leading the charge by going 4-for-4 with four runs scored. Leadoff batter Braylon Guilbeault col- lected three hits, one of them a bases- loaded triple, and ended up with four RBIs; Jonah Silva also had two hits, and along with Nickerson and Chhourn, drove in a pair of runs. Greenless, Guilbeault, and Munger also teamed up on a three-hitter on the mound that saw Guilbeault pick up the win by pitching 2 1/3 innings of one-hit relief. While the news was good for Woonsocket on Monday night, it was the opposite for the league's 8-10 all- star team, which suffered a 10-0 loss to Smithfield in its winners' bracket game at Lajoie Field. Woonsocket was back in action on Wednesday night, taking on Lincoln for the right to face Smithfield again in Saturday afternoon's title game (at a time to be announced) at Hien Field. As for the 11-12 all-stars, their run to the District IV finals came to an end on Sunday night at Hien Field when they suffered their second loss of the double-elimination tourney, falling to Lincoln, 7-4. Owners of a 4-1 lead after five innings of play, Woonsocket, which had dropped its tournament opener to Burrillville on June 29 by a 4-0 score, fell victim to a stunning six-run rally in the top of the sixth inning by Lincoln. Bryan Guy had pitched the first five innings for Woonsocket and lim- ited Lincoln to four hits, two walks, and a third-inning run. Offensively, Woonsocket received a two-run triple from Adrian Escalera in the fourth, a solo home run by Angel Arocho in the fifth, and a single and a triple from Josiah Ortega.

Guilbeault did it all for Woonsocket, as he also pitched 2 1/3 innings of scoreless relief and collected three hits and four RBIs at the plate. Right, Woonsocket pitcher JOE GREENLESS picked up the win in Monday night's 3-2 victory over Smithfield by tossing five innings of four-hit ball, striking out four batters, and retiring the final nine batters he faced.

The simple answer is "yes" in cases where travelers stand to lose a significant amount of money in non- refundable deposits if they cancel their trips. Travel insurance policies, typically costing 4%-10% of the total cost of the trip, provide some guarantee against total loss in the event that unpredictable weather conditions or sickness force a cancellation. Perhaps a more important consideration is the matter of "medical evacuation," which is not usually covered by health plans. The best international travel insurance policies cover medical care and emergency transportation. It only takes a slip on a wet rock or curb to realize the value of this protection. Each destination carries different risks. Without emergency medical assistance benefits, you can easily spend thousands out-of-pocket for treatment and transportation expenses. If you have already booked a trip, you can usually still buy travel insurance up to one day before your departure. To learn more about the benefits of travel insurance, please call HUNTER INSURANCE, INC. at 769-9500. We are located at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year! NOTE: While a Medicare Advantage Plan may cover care outside of its service area (U.S. and its territories), if you travel outside the service area for more than six months, you will be automatically disenrolled from most plans.
