Roundup: Rivers downs Brooks

Junior righthander Connor Rooney only needed 66 pitches to send Rivers to a 7-0 shutout of Brooks on Wednesday in North Andover.

After throwing 33 pitches in three innings of relief Saturday, Rooney expected to throw fewer pitches. Midway through the game, Rooney joked with his coach that he was only going to throw 50 pitches for a complete-game shutout.
