Salem grad Treff with game-winning hit for Northeastern

TREFF WINS IT

Josh Treff, a graduate of Salem (N.H.) High, smacked a single through the left side with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning to give Northeastern baseball a 3-2 walkoff victory over Towson yesterday.

The Huskies, which improved to 15-18 overall and 4-5 in the CAA, overcame a 2-0 deficit to force their sixth extra-inning game of the season.

WALSH TERRIFIC

UMass sophomore Brandon Walsh of North Andover allowed just one run in 9.0 innings but the Minuteman lost 2-1 in extra innings to St. Louis yesterday. Walsh scattered 10 hits, walked just one batter and struck out four.

MERRIMACK GRAD IN DOUBLE-A

Merrimack College graduate Ryan O’Rourke, a 2010 graduate, is pitching for the Minnesota Twins Double-A affiliate, the New Britain Rock Cats, who are in Manchester today, tomorrow and Wednesday to play the Fisher Cats.

O’Rourke entered yesterday’s game against the Portland Sea Dogs with a 2.70 ERA in 3.1 innings out of the bullpen thus far.

CONGRATS PAUL PIERCE

Boston Celtic great Paul Pierce, in his first year with Brooklyn, scored his 25,000 career point the other night. He has 25,008 points to be exact. That ranks him 22nd all-time.

The three top five NBA point scorers of all-time are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387), Karl Malone (36,928), Michael Jordan (32,292), Kobe Bryant (31,700) and Wilt Chamberlain (31,419).

Pierce has the fourth most points among active scorers behind Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki (26,756) and Pierce’s teammate in Boston and now Brooklyn, Kevin Garnett (25,623).

BIG GAME ALERT

Rivals Salem and Londonderry will meet for a boys volleyball match. Its both team’s season opener.

The Blue Devils are in search of their 10th straight state title following a 19-0 season in 2013.

The Lancers are coming off a 14-2 season in 2013 in which they lost in the semifinals. However, Londonderry is returning just one player, junior Nick Winn, who has considerable varsity experience.
