Baseball: 2016 Major League Update - Derek Law (Seton-LaSalle)

Written by John Perrotto on .

Derek Law has had a fine rookie season as a right-handed reliever for the San Francisco Giants.

The Seton-LaSalle High School graduate is 3-1 with one save and a 3.10 ERA in 29 games since making his major league debut April 15 against the Dodgers at Los Angeles. In 29 innings, he has allowed 28 hits while striking out 29 and walking just four.

However, Law's biggest moment wasn't making his debut at Dodger Stadium, notching his first win May 7 against the Colorado Rockies or recording his first save June 13 against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It came when he pitched two scoreless innings June 22 to get credit for the win against the Pirates at PNC Park.

Medaling twice at the PIAA championships said even more.

Rutherford's long jump of 18 feet, 8 ¾ inches placed her only behind Athens' Breana Gambrell (19-3 ¾) and Annville-Cleona's Reagan Hess (19-1). In the 200, Rutherford posted a time of 25.55 seconds. Girard College freshman Thelma Davies won in a meet-record time of 23.85. Burrell's Nikki Scherer (24.42) was the runner-up and Avonworth's Hunter Robinson (24.48) placed third.
