Brookville evens series, beats Miners 14-2

July 19, 2011

BROOKVILLE — The Brookville Grays took Game 2 from the Rossiter Miners Tuesday, 14-2 in six innings.

The best-of-seven series is now even at one game each.

Game 3 will be played at 6 p.m. tonight in Rossiter.

The Grays got out to an early 5-0 lead in the first inning, and Rossiter was not able to recover.

"That's the history of this team," Rossiter manager Rick Matthews said. "Once they get down, they stay down. It's hard to get them pumped up."

The Miners scored their only two runs during the top of the third inning.

The Zak Zone

A few months ago, someone asked me what my dream job would be. I told them that being a sports reporter would be the ideal position for me.

My passion for sports, writing and photography could all be blended together somehow to make the perfect position to fit my talents.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize this truth before I pursued my advanced education, and when I went to college, I studied mathematics and earned a master's in religious studies afterward.
