Rockets hammer Senators
REYNOLDSVILLE — The DuBois Rockets got all they could handle from Sykesville in a hard-fought 8-7 comeback win in Game 1 of the teams’ Federation League semifinal series on Tuesday but made quick of the Senators Wednesday in a 16-0, 5-inning victory in Game 2.
The Rockets scored in every innings, jumping out to a 4-0 lead after one before scoring twice in the second and third innings before pushing three across in the fourth. DuBois finished off the mercy-rule victory with a five-run fifth.
Chris Calliari headlined the DuBois offensive attack as he blasted two home runs and finished with three hits and four RBIs. Dan Stauffer also had a homer for the Rockets.
Morgan Bell was the beneficiary of all that offense as the righty tossed a three-hit shutout. He struck out nine and walked none.
Game 3 of the best-of-5 series is this evening at Showers Field at 6 p.m.
