Update on first day of Cal Ripken playoffs

LEWISTOWN – In its first year under the moniker of Cal Ripken baseball, the Mifflin County Youth baseball team’s are learning to adjust to playing against new teams with different styles and pitchers.
Rec Park in Lewistown had the honor of hosting a state playoff tournament and the 12 U team from Mifflin County had a chance to go up against some strong talent from across the state.
Day one proved to be a learning experience for the youngsters and the locals had a few good moments but finished 0-2 on the day.
In the first contest, Mifflin County went up against Minooka.
The visitors were primed and ready to go from the very start posting an early 5-0 advantage and never looked back, taking the contest 18-3 in five innings.
Highlighting the first game for Mifflin County was Isaac Wilson who blasted a 2-run home run for his team’s’ only runs.

Game 2
BYC 18, Mifflin County 3
Things started out promising for the locals as they were the visiting team and scored one in the first inning and then two in the second, taking a 3-1 advantage as the game went into the third inning.
Playing with only nine players and being short handed, “the Purple and White” tired out in the bottom of the third as it allowed BYC to score 17 runs in the inning, taking the wind out of Mifflin County’s sail.
Wilson once again sent went deep, deep out of the park for his second 2-run home run home run of the game, creating the early spark for Mifflin County team.
However, there is one last chance for redemption on Sunday as the team will play its final game Sunday at 10 am.
