MAURAS GOES SUNDAY

The latest from Sean Farley’s Intenz 978 Boxing Team has unbeaten Agustine Mauras headed to the Dorchester Armory tomorrow in the first six-rounder of the young pro’s career.

Mauras and stablemate/unbeaten heavyweight Alexis Santos had each been slated to fight on the March 16 Tsongas Arena card in Lowell. But this opportunity was solid for Mauras. And Santos came up with a rib injury in training recently. The big fella will pass on both cards as he recovers.

DID YOU KNOW

Heading into last night’s exhibition game vs. the Twins, Salem’s Terry Doyle was tied for second on the Red Sox staff with 6 strikeouts in just 6.2 innings of relief work. The two-time Eagle-Tribune Baseball MVP has only walked one. He has allowed two earned runs for a 2.84 ERA.

A quick check around the bigs has Haverhill’s Carlos Pena hitting .222 with a homer and nine strikeouts in his new digs with the Houston Astros.

Andover’s Ryan Hanigan has been banged up a bit with the Reds this spring. He has a double in five official plate appearance with a pair of RBIs.

Londonderry’s Brian Wilson, recovering from Tommy John Surgery, is still looking for a big league home.

GOLF CHAT

Yes, we were pummeled again by the wrath of winter, but ... it’s time to talk a little golf.

Atkinson Country Club Director of Golf Peter Doherty reports that there will be some tweaking done to the annual Joseph F. Healey Memorial Golf Championship, one of the highlights on the region’s amateur golf scene. The Healey will be moved up to the last week of June, instead of the third week in July.

In addition, the 54-hole event will bump up a day, with rounds 1 and 2 on Wednesday and Thursday, and the championship round on Saturday.
