WAYNE, Neb. (MSU) – The Beavers blasted seven home runs on Wednesday, including three by Javier Gutierrez, but had to settle for a split with host Wayne State in an NSIC baseball doubleheader. Gutierrez hit two of Minot State’s three home runs in an 11-7 win to start the day, then added another in as 13-12 loss in 10 innings to close the twinbill. Minot State (19-11 overall, 10-8 NSIC) now heads home to make its long-awaited home debut at Corbett Field as the Beavers host Northern State on Saturday at noon in a doubleheader.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – University of North Dakota head hockey coach Brad Berry announced on Wednesday that goaltender Ludvig Persson will transfer to UND for his final two years of eligibility beginning in 2023-24. Persson has been a steady force between the pipes during his collegiate career, appearing in 82 games in three seasons for Miami. In those three years, the Hindås, Sweden, native ranks fourth all-time in Miami history with 2,451 saves and was named the team’s most valuable player in 2020-21 and 2021-22. He is the only active goaltender in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) to have 50-or-more saves in a game, doing so three times over his career, with his most recent coming in a 4-1 win at Minnesota Duluth (50 saves on 51 shots). Persson also earned All-NCHC Second Team and All-Rookie honors during the 2020-21 campaign, posting a .925 save percentage and 2.62 GAA. Over his career, Persson has garnered NCHC Goaltender of the Week seven times, including one of only three netminders to win the award three straight weeks in the league’s history, and is also a two-time NCHC Goaltender of the Month honoree. Persson is the third acquisition by North Dakota via transfer this offseason, joining defenseman Garrett Pyke and forward Cameron Berg.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Juuso Parssinen scored at 2:44 of overtime to give the Nashville Predators a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild. Mark Jankowski, Kiefer Sherwood and Yakov Trenin also scored for the Predators. Juuse Saros made 21 saves. Frederick Gaudreau scored twice and Nic Petan also scored for the Wild. Gustav Nyquist had two assists and Filip Gustavsson made 27 saves. The Wild announced earlier Thursday they had signed Gaudreau to a five-year, $10.5 million contract that will keep the forward in Minnesota through the 2027-28 season. In overtime, Parssinen skated through the slot and lifted a between-the-legs shot over Gustavsson’s shoulder for the game-winner. With the Wild completing the regular season Thursday, Gaudreau was the only player who skated in all 82 regular season games. Matt Boldy played in Minnesota’s first 81 games but did not dress Thursday.
Wild: the first round of the playoffs.
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael A. Taylor, rookie Edouard Julien and Carlos Correa hit consecutive homers in a nine-run first inning, and the Minnesota Twins routed the New York Yankees 11-2 on Thursday night. Taylor homered twice and drove in four runs from the No. 9 spot in the batting order. Joe Ryan (3-0) struck out 10 and walked none while allowing one run and three hits over seven innings. Ryan reached double digits in strikeouts after achieving the feat once in his first 33 starts. Jhonny Brito (2-1), coming off wins in his first two major league starts, gave up seven runs and six hits in two-thirds of an inning as his ERA climbed from 6.75. Minnesota went 3 for 3 with three doubles on his sinker. Anthony Rizzo hit a pair of solo homers for the Yankees. Minnesota, which had lost 13 of its previous 16 games against the Yankees, had its highest-scoring inning against New York in a top of the first that took 28 minutes. The Twins scored their most runs against the Yankees.
With about 25 family and friends on hand, the 23-year-old Julien had a night to remember. The Canadian opened the first inning with his first league hit and hit solo homer off Colten Brewer with two outs for an 8-0 lead. The ball bounced off a fan’s hand in the first row and Julien got the ball back when a fan threw it back on the field. Julien became eighth player since 1974 to have his first two major league hits in same inning, according to STATS.
Minnesota RHP Louie Varland, who made his major league debut Sept. 7 in the Bronx, will be called up to oppose New York LHP Nestor Cortes (2-0, 2.61) today. Varland is being added because the Twins are skipping Kenta Maeda’s turn and pushing RHP Tyler Mahle to Saturday.
