Wilmington Little Leagues Latest Game Summaries

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below is a recent Wilmington Little League game summary:AAA: Astros vs. Rays on April 30 at Boutwell FieldIn by far the most exciting game of the year, in (relatively) Arctic temperatures again sending many fans to their cars to watch from the parking lot, it took last-inning heroics for the Astros to overcome a great game by the Rays who were dominant at times. The Rays had their best offensive output of the season led by Henry Almeda’s three hits and two runs. The whole lineup contributed with aggressive base running and big hits from Henry Santini and Nicholas Ryan. Defensively Jack Cyr was solid behind the plate keeping the Astros run game in check, and Jackson Griffith had a nice assist just barely throwing out a runner from the outfield. Pitching for the 2nd time this season, Henry Santini held the Astros in check while he was in the game and helped his own cause with some good defense. For the Astros, Andrew Santo fanned five in his two innings in his first start of the year. Joe Fennelly then bridged the gap to John Roofe who followed that up with two strikeouts in his inning. Dylan Costantiello fanned three in an inning, throwing some genuine heat and Tony Cummings slammed the door in the final inning. Costantiello, Connor Jamieson, and Fennelly shared catching duties. The Astros continued their very solid fielding with plays from Cummings, Fennelly, Cael Considine, Santo, Jamieson, Patrick Moriarty, Jake Gryglik, and Kevin Pruslin to name a few. Everyone was involved in the offense which included steals by Cummings, Santo, and Owen Wills among others, keeping pressure on the Rays’ defense. Gryglik hit a double and a wild triple where he outran the ball all the way around the bases. Roofe had two singles and a big double, eventually scoring the winning run. Moriarty had an early inning single and his aggressive baserunning helped set the tone for what was to come later. He also hit a towering double his next at bat. Considine continued his hot hitting with two singles and two runs while Costantiello also had two hits. Cummings and Fennelly each had a hit and a walk while Santo, Kyle Price, and Wills added singles as well. Aidan Raposa hit a sharp grounder moving the runners to help start the offensive onslaught the last two innings. Jamieson and Pruslin each had walks, Pruslin’s leading to the first run of the final rally. After his walk, clutch hits by Costantiello, Cummings, Fennelly, Considine, and Roofe finished the job.(NOTE: Summaries provided by the Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Firefoxs new logo is starting to arrive

first_imgThe new logo features an even more stylized, leg-less version of the fox.  Mozilla; Stephen Shankland/CNET Mozilla has released a new test version of its web browser that introduces the new Firefox logo and drops “Quantum” from its name.Mozilla long ago moved the Firefox icon to a more stylized look, but the newest version is another step away from the original drawing of a fox wrapped around the globe. Even though the fox’s face is now in view and its limbs have vanished, it’s still easily recognized.The new icon arrived over the weekend in version 70 of Firefox Nightly, the incarnation designed for people who want to test the latest features and who can put up with crashes or other problems. Firefox Nightly will settle down into a beta version in coming weeks, then into the main version everyone gets a few weeks after that — Oct. 20, according to Mozilla’s plans. The new logo should follow that course, said Tim Murray, creative director at Mozilla.The logo in Firefox Nightly has a different blue/purple color scheme. The regular Firefox will stick with the red, orange and yellow colors.A simplified new Firefox iconThis is what the regular Firefox logo will look like once today’s Nightly version matures enough for release to everyone. Mozilla The new version also will drop the “Quantum” label Mozilla has attached to the Firefox name since the November 2017 release of Firefox 57, Mozilla said. The Quantum signified a major effort to speed up Firefox to better compete with Google’s Chrome, which dominates browser usage. A number of Quantum programs rebuilt parts of Firefox’s engine, and one such change — the GPU-acclerated Quantum Render technology to display a web page once Firefox figures out what it’s supposed to look like — is still gradually spreading to more computer types. The project also was called WebRender.”Our goal is that WebRender will be the primary rendering engine for the Firefox Browser and we will continue to roll it out to additional platforms throughout the coming months,” said Jessie Bonisteel, a Firefox engineering manager.Mozilla’s newest challenge to Chrome centers on protecting your privacy online — for example, by blocking websites and online ads that try to track you. Chrome has lagged other browsers like Safari, Firefox and Brave in that regard.Firefox usage is gradually decreasing, at least based on statistics Mozilla gathers from people willing to share that data. However, use of Firefox’s new tracking protection is increasing. “Following our release of Enhanced Tracking Protection on by default, we’ve seen our share of users keeping ETP on all the time rise as well,” said Porfirio Landeros, Mozilla’s senior director of product marketing.First published Aug. 12.Update, Aug. 13: Adds more details about the new logo and Firefox’s changes. 1:38 Check out Firefox’s new content-blocking tools Post a comment 0 Firefox Mozillacenter_img Share your voice Computers Tags Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

TMC to observe black day to protest leaders manhandling in Assam

first_imgKolkata: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) will observe “black day” throughout West Bengal on August 4 and 5 to protest against the detention and “manhandling” of its leaders at the Silchar airport in Assam yesterday, a senior party leader said today. TMC secretary general and West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said the party will observe “black day” in every block and district of the state on Saturday and Sunday. “We condemn the way the public representatives were manhandled and detained by the Assam police at the Silchar airport. They being MPs had every right to visit a place, but all rules were violated and our party delegation was stopped. This is shameful,” he told reporters here. An eight-member TMC delegation, which had six MPs, were stopped at the Silchar airport when they tried to enter Assam’s Cachar district to assess the ground realities after the final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) was published in the north-eastern state on Monday.last_img read more
