On to New Englands
Rockport’s Abby Hood qualified for the New England Interscholastic Golf Championship with a ninth place finish at the MIAA Girls Golf State Tournament earlier Tuesday at the Chicopee Country Club.
Hood, a junior, shot an 86 to crack the top 10 in the 53 person field. Hood qualified for Tuesday’s tournament by shooting an 84 at the Girls District Championship last week, good for a fourth place finish.
The New England Interscholastic Golf Championship will be held on June 17 at Brentwood GC in Keene, NH.
Murphy’s scoreless inning
The Rangers pitching staff allowed a run in each of the first seven innings to the Red Sox during Tuesday night’s 17-5 drubbing.
In fact, it took an outfielder to keep the Red Sox off the board. David Murphy, a former Red Sox outfielder who was traded to the Rangers as apart of the Eric Gagne deal in 2007, kept the Sox off the board in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday night, even struck out Matt Carp.
The NBA Finals begins tonight on ABC (9:00 p.m.) in Miami as the Heat host the Spurs.
Lebron James and the Heat are going for their second straight title while Tim Duncan and the Spurs are going for their fifth since 1999. Lebron last saw the Spurs in the 2007 Finals where Tony Parker and company swept his Cavaliers away.
The Heat are the heavy favorite this season but a crafty Spurs squad is not going to go down easily.
It has been reported that no Red Sox players will be implicated in the league’s latest steroid scandal involving Biogenesis, a Miami area clinic that allegedly provided big leaguers with performance enhancing drugs.
Manager John Farrell took it one step further saying he would be shocked if one of his players were on the list.
