MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Beaver baseball program is moving forward under a new leader who brings plenty of experience in the NSIC with him to the diamond. Minot State’s Director of Athletics, Kevin Forde, is pleased to announce the hiring of Sam Boisner as the new head baseball coach for the Beavers. Boisner takes over the Beaver baseball program after spending the last five seasons as an assistant coach at NSIC rival Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Prior to joining the staff at Northern State, Boisner spent two seasons as an assistant for the University of Illinois-Springfield where he coached both the hitters and catchers and was in charge of recruiting. Boisner, who earned his master’s degree in Sport Performance and Leadership from Northern State, takes over for former Minot State coach Scott Eul who after six winning seasons took the head coaching position at the University of Missouri-St. Louis last month.
HOUSTON (AP) — Justin Verlander was totally fine leaving with a no-hitter intact after six innings against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night. Verlander posted his major league-leading 16th win and the Astros beat the Minnesota Tuesday night in Carlos Correa’s return to Houston. Verlander (16-3) allowed just one runner to reach base — Nick Gordon struck out in the second inning on a wild pitch to get aboard. Verlander fanned 10 and lowered his MLB-best ERA to 1.87 in his spectacular return after missing almost two seasons after Tommy John surgery. The 39-year-old Verlander was pulled after 91 pitches. Alex Bregman’s homer helped the AL West-leading Astros build a 4-0 lead. The Twins scored twice in the ninth and had the bases loaded before Bryan Abreu struck out Jake Cave to end it.
Houston’s Framber Valdez (12-4, 2.72) opposes Dylan Bundy (7-5, 4.60) when the series continues tonight.
HOUSTON (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have placed All-Star outfielder Byron Buxton on the 10-day injured list with a low grade strain of his right hip. “It’s very tough news, of course,” manager Rocco Baldelli said. “But also knowing with what Buck’s been dealing with, there wasn’t actually much of a decision to be made… and I think Buck also knows that the right thing for him to do was to take a period of time… and get himself in a better spot physically so he can come back and do all the things that he’s been doing for us all year long and hopefully more.” Buxton, who is tied for third in the American League with 28 homers, left Monday’s loss to the Rangers with tightness in the hip.
“I think we were able to avoid a major, major injury or something where we’re talking about a month or the rest of the season,” Baldelli said. “We’re not talking about that, which is a good thing.” Buxton has also been dealing with a knee problem and Baldelli hopes the time off will help him recover from both issues. “His knee has been a fairly consistent issue since April,” Baldelli said. “So I think this period of time will help that also settle down.”
Buxton is hitting .224 with 13 doubles, three triples and 51 RBIs. An All-Star this season, Buxton has a.306 on-base percentage, a .526 slugging percentage and an .833 OPS in 92 games this season.
Also on Tuesday, the Twins selected the contract of right-hander Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A St. Paul, recalled catcher Caleb Hamilton and optioned left-hander Devin Smeltzer.
