DISTRICT 1: Saegertown’s bats go quiet against Punxsutawney

SAEGERTOWN — Katelyn Young was the pure definition of a tough-luck pitcher Tuesday night.

On the agony end of one mis-judged hit, one bad-hop double, one bloop single and three mis-played grounders, Young and her Saegertown teammates fell to Punxsutawney, 5-0 in the opening round of the Section 1 Little League Tournament at Bertram Park.

Saegertown will play Clarion today at 3:30 p.m. back at Bertram in loser’s bracket action. Punxsutawney will square off against Corry at 6.

Prior to the Punxsy battle, Saegertown coach Jim Mulligan targeted coach Brian Lingenfelter’s club as the top team in the tournament.

Mulligan’s assumption could be right.

Facing three dominating Punxsy hurlers, Saegertown managed only two hits in the game — Karlyn Mondi’s single in the third inning and Carlie Schlosser’s one-bagger in the fifth.

“Their pitchers are strong,” said Mulligan, referring to Kylee Lingenfelter, Elyse White and Grace Aiken — who threw two innings apiece.

As for their counterpart, Young ... it was a frustrating night. The left-hander threw a solid game, scattering seven hits while striking out five and walking two.

The ball just didn’t bounce (or fly) her way.

In the first inning, Punxsy’s Jazzmine Hadden reached on an one-out error. With two outs, Aiken drove in Hadden and Kate Horner (who walked) with the aforementioned mis-judged double.

Chelsea Snyder led off the second with a bloop single and later scored on White’s sacrifice bunt.

Leading 4-0, Punxsutawney tacked its final run on the scoreboard in the fifth when Lancy Monroe reached on a bad-hop double and scored on Horner’s sacrifice bunt.

Get the idea? Young didn’t have much luck.

“Katelyn threw a great game,” said Mulligan. “Obviously, we need to sharpen our defense for her.”

Saegertown came within inches of scoring in the fifth. With Schlosser standing on third via her single and an error, Abi Larson lined a sizzler down the right-field line, but it landed foul by a couple inches.

“I thought we played a great game,” said Mulligan. “Hopefully, we will hit the ball better against Clarion.”

Game Notes: Monroe was 2-for-3 with a double and Horner was 1-for-1 with two runs scored and two stolen bases ... Horner, Hadden and Mia Lingenfelter each stole two bases ... Punxsy executed three sacrifice bunts ... Young threw 93 pitches, 57 for strikes.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.
