Miners prove a 'major' pain for Kersey

The Kersey Kings made the trek to Shaffer Field in Rossiter on Tuesday to take on the Miners, with Joe Beimel — a former Major League Baseball player from the area — sporting his black-and-gold Pirates jersey. The Miners proved the major pain, though, belting 18 hits against the Kings' pitching staff en route to a 9-4 victory in the game and a 2-1 lead in the series. The series shifts back to Beimel Field in Kersey on Wednesday for Game 4. (Photo by Zak Lantz/The Punxsutawney Spirit)
