DUBOIS â€” The DuBois Post 17 American Legion baseball team scored five runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings of Sunday afternoon's game against Punxsy Post 62,.
The final score was 15-3, and the game ended in five innings via the 12-run rule at Showers Field in DuBois.
"We didn't bring the same intensity as we did the other day, that's for sure," Punxsy manager Mike Dickey said. "Maybe it was a let down. I don't know, I really can't explain it. They hit the ball well, and we didn't. We just didn't show up."
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Already leading 9-5, Punxsy's 10-&11-year old All-Stars brought 14 hitters to the plate in the top of the fifth inning and doubled its run total on the way to an 18-5 victory over DuBois Saturday in Punxsutawney.
"Everything carried over from up in Warren like I had hoped it would, especially at the plate," Punxsy manager Brad Gigliotti said.
Nine of the first 10 batters that Punxsy brought to the plate in the fifth inning reached base via base hits.
Carl Medsger led off the inning with a double off of DuBois relief pitcher Doran Walker.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Punxsy's Junior League softball All-Stars batted around in three of the four innings that it came to the plate en route to a 14-0 victory in five innings over Ridgway in Punxsutawney on Saturday.
Punxsy was the home team, so it did not have to bat in the fifth inning because of the ten-run rule.
With the win, Punxsy advances in the losers' bracket and will play St. Marys today at 6 p.m. Ridgway was eliminated from the tournament with the loss.
