DuBois repeats with Fed League championship

July 31, 2011

DUBOIS — The Rossiter Miners defeated the DuBois Rockets Saturday night to force a fifth game in the championship series of the Federation League, but DuBois won the fifth and championship-clinching game, 6-4, Sunday in Dubois to claim the title.

Rossiter took an early 2-0 lead with two runs in the top of the second without recording a hit thanks to one walk by DuBois pitcher Ben McGary and three errors by DuBois' defense.

Miners' starting pitcher Tommy Bush faced only one batter more than the minimum through three innings, but DuBois jumped on him in the fourth.

DuBois beats the rain, and the Miners, leads series 3-0

July 28, 2011

DUBOIS — Kevin Gnacinski pitched a complete game shutout, allowing just three hits, and the DuBois Rockets beat the approaching storm clouds to win Game 3 of the Federation League championship over the Rossiter Miners, 3-0, Thursday night in DuBois.

With the win, DuBois took a 3-0 series lead, and needs just one more victory to clinch the championship for the second straight season.

Rossiter's inability to muster up any offense frustrated manager Rick Matthews.

July 26, 2011

DUBOIS — The Rossiter Miners jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in Game 1 of the Federation League championship series Tuesday night in DuBois, but DuBois Rockets' pitcher Ben McGary threw six shutout innings after that, and DuBois won 8-1 to take the early lead in the series.

"We didn't have too many guys on base to get a chance to steal a base and score," Rossiter manager Rick Matthews said.

Rossiter also struggled defensively, committing an error in the fourth inning and two in the fifth that all proved to be costly.

The Zak Zone

July 26, 2011

As a Pirates fan, there is a day approaching on the Major League Baseball calendar that has long been one I have dreaded: The July 31 trade-deadline.

Typically, the trade deadline has meant I needed to constantly check all of the trade-rumor Web pages to make sure my favorite players had not been dealt away to the Yankees or the Red Sox in a last-minute trade "for prospects."

Trades for prospects ended up being the worst news I could hear, or so I thought at the time.

Championship rematch starts tonight in DuBois

July 25, 2011

DUBOIS — The Rossiter Miners will have a chance at revenge as they begin the Federation League Championships against the DuBois Rockets at 6 p.m. tonight at Showers Field in DuBois.

The Miners fell to the Rockets in Game 7 of the 2010 championships, and both teams are looking for a good challenge this year.

"It's going to be a good series," Rossiter manager Rick Matthews said following Sunday's series-winner over the Brookville Grays. "DuBois got the best of us in the regular season. ... Our pitching has to step up big against them, and we need to hit the ball on their pitching, too."
