PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Strong pitching was a theme during Punxsy's baseball game against St. Marys Wednesday afternoon in Punxsutawney, with each pitching staff holding the other team to just six hits. But the deciding factor proved to be finding the strike zone, as Punxsy walked just one hitter while managing six free passes from Dutch starter Justin Beimel in a 5-2 victory.
Punxsy starter Jamie Bush pitched five innings, allowing just two runs, to earn the win for the Chucks, and reliever Cory Geer closed the deal with two no-hit innings.
Well, it's finally the day for which we've all been waiting so long, and by that I mean for which at least I have been waiting so long: Opening Day.
Unfortunately, this means finally giving up on any last-second trades sending PAHS grad and Cincinnati Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco to my beloved Buccos.
It's time to face the music and admit that from start to finish this year, I'll be rooting for the Reds.
While the checklist of career firsts winds down for Mesoraco, the first he will face today â€”Â his first Opening Day in the Majors â€”Â is definitely one worth recognizing.
