Punxsy's eight-run second inning led it to the victory. Punxsy totaled 14 runs on 18 hits throughout the game.

BROOKVILLE â€” The Punxsutawney Bombers went into Saturday's Craig Lewis Memorial Tournament 11-and-12 championship game undefeated, meaning they needed just one victory over Brookville's Team Skittlez to secure the trophy.
It took only four innings to finish off Team Skittlez, 21-7, before the Bombers swarmed the field in celebration.
Dylan Huey led Punxsy's offense, going 3-for-5 at bat, scoring twice and recording three RBIs. He hit two doubles and a single.
ROSSITER â€” The Rossiter Miners topped the Brookville Grays, 1-0, Sunday in game one of the second round of the Federation League playoffs.

The round is a best-of-seven series format, with the next game being played in Brookville Tuesday.

The Miners recorded one run on just three hits throughout the ball game, but that, combined with impressive defense and pitching, was enough to win them the ball game.
