Chucks put together game-deciding third inning to sweep series from Beavers

May 8, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Balls take some odd bounces and the Chucks experienced a handful of these early in the baseball game on Wednesday.

Punxsy did not let the early deficit dictate its game by putting together a game-deciding seven-run third inning to overtake rival DuBois, 10-6, in Punxsutawney.

The Chucks (11-5) victory gave them the season series sweep of the Beavers (12-4). Punxsy claimed a 3-1 road decision on April 17.

"We got some bad hops early and the ball found some holes," pointed out Punxsy head coach Mike Dickey. "All-in-all, it was a good win against a good baseball team."

DUBOIS — It is always tough to face a team that is red hot.
This was the challenge the Punxsy softball squad had on its plate on Wednesday afternoon.

The Lady Chucks were able to take an early one-run lead before the hot-playing Lady Beavers answered with three runs and never trailed again for a 6-3 victory in DuBois.

The victory was DuBois (10-4) ninth in a row.

The Lady Beavers last defeat came at the hands of the Lady Chucks (11-4) on April 17 by a 1-0 final.
