MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Minot State’s softball team continued its recent dominance over in-state rival the University of Mary, sweeping the Marauders in an NSIC doubleheader Tuesday night inside the MSU “Bubble” as the Beavers stretch their win streak to 15 in-a-row over Mary. Reegan Floyd, Calley Olson, and Gabi Dawyduk led the way in the circle for the sweep as Minot State won 8-0 in 6 innings in the opener, then scored a 7-2 victory in the nightcap.
GAME 1 | Minot State 8, Mary 0, 6 innings
Junior Reegan Floyd was dealing on Tuesday, tossing a one-hit shutout to lead the Minot State Beavers over the Mary Marauders 8-0 in 6 innings. Floyd (4-3) went the distance for Minot State, giving up one hit, walking none and striking out four. The Beavers took the lead for good in the first, scoring for the first time in the inning. Minot State scored three runs in the frame, highlighted by a two-run single off the bat of senior Kilee Fehd. The Beavers then tacked on runs in the third and sixth innings, with their biggest output coming in the third when they scored four times. Fehd and freshman Taylor Eatherton each had an RBI single, Hannah Murray added an RBI sacrifice fly, and senior Lauryn DeGuzman added an RBI fielder’s choice in the rally.
GAME 2 | Minot State 7, Mary 2
The Minot State Beavers took a 3-0 lead in the first inning and never surrendered the advantage on the way to a 7-2 win over the Mary Marauders on Tuesday. Sophomore Calley Olson (2-1) started in the circle and picked up the win for Minot State. The right-hander went five innings, giving up two runs, both of them earned, on seven hits, allowing two walks and striking out two. Senior Gabi Dawyduk also made an impact in the circle for the Beavers, throwing two shutout innings while allowing no hits. At the plate, the Beavers were paced by sophomore Sara Van Wickler, who went 2-for-2 on the day with a double, a triple, two walks and three RBI. Sophomore Paige Kellogg furnished a noteworthy day at the dish as well, going 1-for-3 with a triple, a walk and two RBI. Senior Izzy Penner also chipped in for Minot State, putting together two hits in three trips to the plate while adding a walk and an RBI. The Beavers got the scoring started early, putting two runs on the board in the bottom the first inning with the game still scoreless. Minot State scored three runs in the frame, highlighted by a two-run triple from Kellogg. The Marauders failed to push any runs across before the Beavers offense got back to their scoring ways the next inning. Minot State scored once on an RBI single off the bat of Penner, which brought the score to 4-0 in favor of the Beavers. Mary narrowed Minot State’s lead to 4-2 before the Beavers stretched the advantage to 7-2 in the fifth inning. Van Wickler’s bases-clearing triple scored all three runs in the frame for the Beavers. The score remained 7-2 for the rest of the game, as Minot State coasted to the win.
Minot State (13-9 overall, 8-2 NSIC) now hits the road for a key conference doubleheader, playing at preseason NSIC favorite Augustana (22-13, 7-1) in a battle for second place in the league. First pitch is slated for noon on Saturday in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Naz Reid strengthened his case for the Sixth Man of the Year Award with 25 points and six rebounds, Anthony Edwards scored 19 points and the Timberwolves kept up their push for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference with a 113-106 victory over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. The Timberwolves, who have clinched a playoff berth, are tied for second with Oklahoma City at 52-23, a half-game behind Denver, with seven games remaining in the regular season. Houston had a seven-game road win streak snapped and has dropped two in a row following 11 straight victories that brought it back into the playoff picture. The Rockets (38-37) are now three games out of the Western Conference’s final play-in position. Making his sixth straight start in place of injured Karl-Anthony Towns, Reid breathed life into an initially quiet Target Center crowd on Tuesday. The 6-foot-9 center is averaging 13.1 points and 5.1 rebounds and shooting 40.7% from 3-point range this season, all career highs. The Timberwolves host Toronto tonight.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Vinni Lettieri scored the winning goal with just under seven minutes to play and the Minnesota Wild beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Tuesday night to earn a crucial two points and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Mason Shaw scored for the first time in more than a year, Matt Boldy had a goal, and Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves for the Wild, who are six points behind the Los Angeles Kings for the second Western Conference wild-card spot with eight games to play. Lettieri and Shaw are on the Wild’s fourth line with Jacob Lucchini. The trio entered with five goals combined in 84 games. Drake Batherson and Jakob Chychrun each had a power-play goal and an assist and Joonas Korpisalo made 17 saves, but the Senators five-game winning streak came to an end. Wild forward Ryan Hartman sat out the first game of his three-game suspension for throwing his stick toward the officials after overtime in Saturday’s loss to Vegas. The Wild host Colorado Thursday night.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jackson Chourio singled in a run in his first American Family Field plate appearance, Christian Yelich homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Tuesday to open a season with four straight wins for the first time since 2006.

Milwaukee is 4-0 for the fourth time after winning its first 13 games in 1987 and its first five in 1978 and 2006.
Brewers RHP Joe Ross makes his first major league appearance since August 2021 and Twins RHP Chris Paddack makes his first start since May 2022 when the two-game series concludes this afternoon.
