Punxsutawney's own Devin Mesoraco had a weekend full of baseball for the Cincinnati Reds Saturday and Sunday, playing in both victories against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mesoraco struggled in Saturday's game, going 0-for-4 at bat and getting struck out once by Pittsburgh's Jose Veras. He had two flies out and a groundout to third base.

Sunday, Mesoraco had a more successful game as he reached base twice. His game was complete with one hit and two runs.

Mesoraco first made it on base when he was called safe at second after an error by Pirates' third baseman Josh Harrison. His first score then came minutes later when he was driven in by Brandon Phillips.

In the top of the sixth, Mesoraco had his lone hit of the game — a single to center field.

He was then scored by Dontrelle Williams' two-RBI double to deep right field.

During Mesoraco's final at-bat, he was struck out swinging by Pittsburgh's Daniel McCutchen.

Punxsutawney locals are hoping Mesoraco's continued progress may allow him to stay on as a starter for the Reds for the remainder of the season.
