PowerHouse earns it again

PowerHouse Electric battled for two wins Thursday to earn a repeat championship in the junior division against Putt-Putt.
Pitcher Jimmy Hill kept the opposition off-balance and PowerHouse infield turned two double plays in the opener for a 7-0 victory. Putt-Putt had eight hits but advanced only one runner to third base during that shutout.
Bob Knight and Jim Ridenour each drove in two runs for the winners.
Putt-Putt, playing without two of its top hitters, nearly pulled off a victory in the second game, clawing back from an early 5-0 deficit with a four-run rally in the fourth inning.
Don Torok, Scott Britton and Ed Jankowski all had RBIs for Putt-Putt in that inning, which followed a brief delay because of a quick cloudburst.
But Knight’s two-run homer to left-center was the key hit in a five-run sixth inning that seemed to seal the deal. Putt-Putt simply was unable to answer, and the verdict was in.
More details will be available later. The tournament ends the junior division season, and the senior tournament will start Tuesday, Aug. 15.
