PUNXSUTAWNEY â€”Â Punxsy's Junior Legion team â€”Â I-Medical â€” earned a split in Monday's action at the Western Regional tournament, which the Punxsy squad was hosting, putting itself in a position where it must win at least another game today to move into the top three and advance to states.
I-Medical started the day with a 12-8 win over West Hempfield. Despite a late run by West Hempfield, the host squad earned its berth in the winners' bracket final.
I-Medical started the game, after being named the visiting team, with a one-run first inning.
BROOKVILLE â€” Two key innings, the first and seventh, gave the Senators the edge they needed to claim a 5-1 Game 3 victory Monday at McKinley Field. Brookville played top-notch defense in innings two through six but could never generate any scoring momentum to match Sykesvilleâ€™s effort.
â€śWe played better than pretty good; (Brookville) dropped that one fly ball and that ball that slid past the first baseman; those two things broke our bats, and we never mended them after that,â€ť said Bob McCullough, Brookville Grays manager.
