MANKATO, Minn. (MSU) – There’s been plenty of battle in the Beavers, and Thursday night it paid off in Minot State’s first win over the Minnesota State, Mankato program. Down early, the Beavers won three of the final four matches, a comeback capped by Nathan Baca’s decision win that finished off an 18-16 dual victory for Minot State in NSIC men’s wrestling at MSU, Mankato. The Beavers (7-8 duals, 2-5 NSIC) will go for the weekend road sweep when they wrestle at Southwest Minnesota State on Friday. Down 9-0 in the dual after the first three matches of the night, Minot State’s Dustin Swisher got the comeback started with a convincing 7-0 decision win at 197 pounds. After a battle at heavyweight went the way of defending national champion Darrell Mason, 2-1 over Minot State’s Jake Swirple, the comeback gained momentum as the Beavers’ hottest wrestler of late, Oscar Nellis, had an easy night as he collected six team points for a forfeit victory at 125 pounds. Trailing 12-9 in the dual, James Davis tied the match for Minot State with a 4-3 decision win at 133 pounds thanks to earning a riding-time point.
That set the stage for a fantastic finish by the Beavers as Brock Luthens’ major decision win at 141 pounds left Minot State trailing 16-12 with two matches left. Kelby Armstrong cut into that difference with a late escape in his 149-pound match that gave him a 3-2 decision win. Setting the stage for a winner-take-all final bout at 157, and Baca took control early, tying the first round 2-2 with a reversal, then grabbing a 3-2 lead thanks to a second-round escape. Baca then stayed in control in the third round and added a riding-time point for a 4-2 decision victory that vaulted the Beavers to the 18-16 team win.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — AL batting champion Luis Arraez has won his arbitration case and will get a $6.1 million salary from the Miami Marlins, who acquired the All-Star infielder from the Minnesota Twins last month. Miami argued for $5 million. Arraez hit .316 with eight homers, 49 RBIs and a .795 OPS last year. The 25-year-old was traded on Jan. 20 for starting pitcher Pablo López and a pair of prospects: infielder Jose Salas and outfielder Byron Chourio. Marlins left-hander Jesús Luzardo had his hearing Thursday. He asked for a raise from $715,000 to $2.45 million, and Miami proposed $2.1 million.
