PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsy starting pitcher Joe Pisano is flourishing at the right time.
The senior, who had a 10.70 ERA through his first 20 innings before he allowed three runs over his last 14 1/3-innings this season, was dominant Wednesday in the District IX Class AAA Semifinals against Bradford at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.
Pisano delivered a one-hit gem during the Chucks' 10-1 victory over the Owls (5-13) to put Punxsy in position to win its eighth consecutive district title.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Focused was a word Punxsy first-year manager Mike Dickey constantly used Tuesday to describe the Chucks as they enter the District IX Class AAA Playoffs against Bradford.
The top-seeded Chucks have an ultimate goal of winning their eighth title in a row, but before they do that, they'll have to get past No. 4 Bradford at 4:30 p.m. today at Rich Kuntz Memorial Field in Punxsutawney.
