Memorial Day races
Local runners will be offered a great two for one deal next weekend with a pair of excellent races.
On Saturday is the long-running Sons of Italy 5K race in Methuen, starting at the Methuen Lodge at 9:30 a.m. — a fine race that supports veterans. On Sunday is the Baldi 5-Mile River Run in Haverhill, offering a terrific course from downtown Haverhill along the river to Trinity Stadium and back.
Even in majors
You see it in Little League now and then, but rarely in the majors.
In a recent game, however, Tampa Bay righty Alex Cobb struck out four batters and yet still allowed a run.
Against the Padres, Cobb fanned Will Venable, who reached first on a wild pitch, stole second on a strikeout, stole third and then scored on a balk.
