MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – With the regular season in the books and postseason play set to begin, the NSIC announced its All-Conference and All-Defensive Softball Teams on Tuesday and a trio of Minot State Beavers were honored by the league’s coaches. Senior shortstop Brooklyn Morrison, senior pitcher and designated player Gabi Dawyduk, and sophomore catcher Anna LaCount all were honored as they were named to the All-NSIC team for their play this spring.
Morrison was a 1st Team All-NSIC selection as voted on by the league’s coaches, while Dawyduk and LaCount both were voted 2nd Team All-NSIC players. The honor is the first time each has been named to the All-NSIC Team. Morrison led the Beavers with a .391 batting average and 3 home runs in 36 games this season. She also had 10 doubles, 2 triples, 14 RBIs, and 7 stolen bases on offense. Also anchoring the Beaver defense, she had a .960 fielding percentage with 58 putouts and 110 assists in 175 chances.
LaCount was next behind Morrison with her .378 batting average in 32 games as she added 13 doubles, a triple, 22 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases. Defensively she had 69 putouts and 15 assists in 86 chances, and as a catcher she threw out 5 base-stealers.
Dawyduk hit .307 for the Beavers with nine doubles, a home run, 22 RBIs as well, which was second most on the team, and a stolen base. Defensively she had 1 putout and 39 assists in 41 chances. In the circle, the Beaver senior led Minot State’s pitching staff with her 2.23 ERA and nine wins in 18 appearances while opponents hit a low of .252 against the Minot State senior who struck out 34 batters.
Morrison, LaCount, Dawyduk, and the rest of the Beaver softball team (22-18 overall) hit the diamond today to begin postseason play, taking on Northern State (25-23) in the first round of the NSIC Tournament in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. First pitch is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
CHICAGO (AP) — Max Kepler drove in the tiebreaking run in the ninth inning for the second straight game, this time with a sacrifice fly, and the Minnesota Twins won their ninth in a row, 6-5 over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night. The Twins extended their longest win streak since a 10-game run in June 2008. They also won their seventh in a row against the White Sox and put themselves in position to sweep Chicago again after taking four games at Target Field last week. Minnesota’s Simeon Woods Richardson went 3 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) and seven hits. The 23-year-old right-hander threw 81 pitches in his fourth career start and third this season. Jhoan Duran pitched around a leadoff single by Tommy Pham in the bottom half and picked up the save after missing the Twins’ first 28 games because of a strained right oblique muscle. Caleb Thielbar (1-1) recorded the final two outs in the eighth. The White Sox are a major league-worst 6-24 overall and 2-17 against the AL Central.
The three-game series wraps up with RHP Bailey Ober (2-1, 4.21 ERA) pitching for Minnesota and RHP Chris Flexen (1-3, 5.11) getting the ball for Chicago. Ober has a 1.48 ERA in four starts since getting pounded in a loss at Kansas City on March 31. Flexen threw five scoreless innings in a win over Tampa Bay last week.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves will enter their second round playoff series against defending champion Denver with an unsettled bench — coach Chris Finch will be recovering from knee surgery. Finch, who was hurt in a sideline collision with Timberwolves point guard Mike Conley, will have his ruptured right patellar tendon repaired today, according to a person with knowledge of the plan. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team had not yet made the details public. ESPN first reported the news. Conley was dribbling up the court near the boundary when Suns star Devin Booker bumped into him, sending him hurtling toward the coach. Conley tried to brace their fall, but the damage was already done by the impact. Finch immediately grimaced and grabbed his knee in pain. The surgery will leave Finch with only three days of recovery before Game 1 in Denver, and this type of procedure typically requires the leg to be immobilized for more time than that. He’ll need crutches for awhile, too. The cramped space on an NBA sideline makes it difficult to envision Finch being able to be on the bench for the beginning of the series. Assistant coach Micah Nori took the lead after Finch hobbled off late in the Game 4 win at Phoenix that completed the first round sweep. Nori also coached the team March 8 at Cleveland when Finch was ill. Filling any voids will be a team effort from a staff that has developed a strong sense of chemistry in the short time it’s been together.
