PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” After downing Derry in the opening game of the Indiana County Youth League playoffs Sunday afternoon in Punxsutawney, I-Medical traveled to Derry for the second game of the best-of-three series. And in come-from-behind, dramatic fashion, Punxsy's squad clinched a berth to the finals against the Indiana Black Sox, who also won Tuesday, with a 9-7 victory Monday evening.
I-Medical jumped out to a great start in the contest, putting up a three-spot in the opening frame to put the pressure on Derry in its go-or-go-home game.
While Punxsutawney hosted its Machine Pitch Tournament last weekend, this group of Punxsy youngsters saw success at the recent Tim Weaver Memorial Tournament in Brookville the previous weekend.
