DULUTH, Minn. (MSU) – Senior RJ Martinez had everything working on Monday, punching out 13 Minnesota-Duluth hitters over seven innings of work to help lead the Minot State Beavers past the Bulldogs 11-1. In addition to his 13 strikeouts, Martinez (5-0) gave up one run on four hits and walking none for Minot State (24-18, 18-9). In the batter’s box, the Beavers were paced by junior Matt Malone, who went 3-for-5 on the day with three RBIs. The Beavers host Bemidji State in a doubleheader at Corbett Field today at 1:30 pm.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State softball team gave 16th-ranked Minnesota State, Mankato all it could handle but fell 3-0 and 4-2 in a season-ending, NSIC doubleheader Monday at the South Hill Softball Complex. The Beavers finish the season with a five game losing streak, ending the year with a record of 28-20, 9-15 NSIC. The top ten teams make the NSIC Tournament and Minot State was 11th in the standings.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — David Perron was quarantined in his basement last year, listening to his kids run around upstairs and watching the St. Louis Blues get swept out of the first round. The 15-year veteran right wing sure showed his appreciation for being back in the playoffs. Perron had a hat trick and an assist to lead the Blues past the Minnesota Wild 4-0 on Monday night in Game 1 of their first-round series, one year after COVID-19 kept him out of the postseason. Ryan O’Reilly had a goal and an assist, Torey Krug added three assists and Ville Husso made 37 saves for the shutout in his postseason debut for the Blues, who seized home-ice advantage from a Wild team they’ve had their way with in recent years. Game 2 is Wednesday night in St. Paul, before the series shifts south to St. Louis.
BALTIMORE (AP) — At the end of another solid outing, Chris Paddack left some unfinished business for his bullpen to clean up. Joe Smith immediately induced an inning-ending double play, and the Minnesota relievers kept right on rolling from there. Paddack pitched effectively into the sixth, and the Twins’ bullpen didn’t allow a hit after he left, holding off the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 on Monday night. Carlos Correa hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth that sent Minnesota to its 10th win in 11 games. Paddack (1-2) allowed a run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander left the game with men on first and third and one out. Smith got Ryan Mountcastle to bounce into a double play that kept the Twins up by a run. Griffin Jax and Emilio Pagán each worked an inning, and hard-throwing rookie Jhoan Duran pitched a perfect ninth for his first career save.
