Early and often: I-Medical pours it on in win

June 20, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — I-Medical scored at least once in five of its six trips to the plate Wednesday evening in Punxsutawney, including five in the first two frames, to cruise to a 10-3 victory over Marion Center in Indiana County Youth League action.

The home squad never trailed in the contest and used strong pitching and timely hitting to pick up its 10 runs on just eight hits.

Punxsy starter Dakotah Byers allowed one runner to reach base in the first inning but still managed to retire the side in order with the help of his catcher, Clayton Dale.
