BROOKVILLE â€” The Rossiter Miners could not keep the Brookville Grays off the bags in their 11-4 loss Wednesday night in Brookville. In a game that saw 10 hits and three home runs from Brookville, there was little Rossiter could do to cool down the Grays' hot bats.
"They (Brookville) just hit the ball tonight, what can I say, the better team won; could be all different tomorrow," said Jim Dunlap, Miners manager.
This time of year, my focus has usually turned to football season, as my beloved Pittsburgh Pirates have usually been statistically eliminated from the playoffs. And while this year is much different, and the battlin' Buccos are still dancing atop the National League Central standings, I'm starting to feel a little bit of the football itch.
