Nick Burns likes to finish what he starts. Last season, when he earned Tri-Valley League Pitcher of the Year honors as a Hopkinton High sophomore, he compiled a record of 5-1 with 60 strikeouts, 11 walks, and a 2.60 earned-run average in 48 innings pitched.

Of the seven games he took the mound as the Hillers’ starting pitcher, Burns threw five complete games.
