Punxsy's come-from-behind rally started with one out in the sixth, when relief pitcher Cory Geer was hit by a John Georgino pitch. No. 9 hitter Taylor Phillips followed with a walk, putting runners on first and second.
Wednesday evening, the 2011-12 Punxsy wrestling team gathered one final time for a banquet at the Eagles.
