In dramatic fashion: Chucks rally past Beavers

April 19, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Trailing the DuBois Beavers 4-2 entering the home half of the sixth inning Wednesday in Punxsutawney, the Chucks knew they needed to make some noise with their bats. And with a bit of help from the Beavers' pitching staff early, Punxsy did just that, putting up five runs in the frame to take a 7-4 lead — one that would hold up for a win.

Punxsy's come-from-behind rally started with one out in the sixth, when relief pitcher Cory Geer was hit by a John Georgino pitch. No. 9 hitter Taylor Phillips followed with a walk, putting runners on first and second.
