Chucks score 21 runs to earn win after falling behind 8-0

May 16, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY– Punxsy baseball coach Mike Dickey said anyone who comes to watch the Chucks play this season needs to keep one thing in mind about his team.

Punxsy isn't a team where any opponent can feel safe with its lead.

After failing behind 8-0 in the second inning, the Chucks (8-7) scored 21 runs over the next five innings to earn a five-inning, 21-11 mercy rule decision over Hollidaysburg Monday.

PUNXSUTAWNEY— Three swings of the bat by Punxsy's softball team was provided nine of the Lady Chucks' softball teams 11 runs in a six-inning, mercy rule decision over District VI Hollidaysburg Monday in Punxsy.

Shawnna Crago and Ashley Barenchik both crushed grand slams with Crago's home run ending the game in the sixth. Taylor Powell also hit a home run to give Punxsy a 1-0 lead in the first.

I’m not saying this is the reason DuBois won and Punxsy lost, but for a district title, the players on the court shouldn’t be deciding if balls are in or out of bounds. A lot of credit goes to Punxsy, and Dave Roberts in particular, for taking the rulings as they were, not complaining and playing through it all.
