PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” It may have been sunny outside on Tuesday afternoon, but Phil forgot to turn up the thermostat.
But after a slow opening two frames to start, Punxsy suddenly hit its stride.
Following a pair of scores in the third to tie the game at two, the Chucks changed to hot setting with a 10-run fourth to overtake the Wildcats of Kittanning for a 12-2 five-inning 10-run-rule victory on a cold opener in Punxsutawney.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The dirt was flying when ground was broken for the new Primary Health Network (PHN) medical facility that is being constructed on Prushnok Drive in the east end of Punxsutawney.
The weather was cold, but dry, and the sun was out for the ceremonial turning of earth at the seven-acre location.
Jack Laeng, CEO of PHN, welcomed the guests and dignitaries to the festivities, which were held on the construction site located behind the old Career Link building that is also owned by PHN.
