Inside the Box Score

  • AJ Millar (Harrisburg, Pa. / Central Dauphin)started on the mound for Mont Alto and earned the win allowing five hits along with three earned runs in six innings of work.

  • The score remained tied until Chance McClure (Chambersburg, Pa. / Chambersburg Area) scored on a Jacoby fielder’s choice. Beaver once again tied it right back up in the ensuing inning.
