Miners fall to Grays 5-1 in Game 1

July 15, 2012

BROOKVILLE — The Rossiter Miners came off a 6-0 victory against the Bigler Buccos into the first game of their best of seven series against the Brookville Grays. The Miners were not able to keep the momentum going, as they struggled against the Grays in Game 1, going down 5-1 Sunday due to a strong pitching performance by Glenn Stewart.

"We've been having bad innings; we've been having that the last few games; we ended up having a bad inning, and that cost us the game. They hit the ball, and we just didn't make the plays," said Jim Dunlap, Rossiter Miners manager.
