Mifflin County pitching staff powers MC past Huntingdon
From staff reports
HUNTINGDON –Mifflin County received a huge boost from its pitching staff on Saturday, as Bryce Dobson and Zach Williams combined for a 3-0 shutout victory at Huntingdon in an Independent League baseball contest.
Dobson threw five stellar innings, striking out three and walking just one. Dobson only allowed two hits on 61 pitches.
“Bryce Dobson pitched extremely well,” Mifflin County coach John McGonigle said. “He threw 61 pitches in five innings of work and never faced more than four batters in an inning. He was just efficient right from the start. He hit his spots, kept the ball down in the zone, and mixed up his pitches.”
Williams pitched the final two inning, giving up one hit while walking two and striking out one. He induced a huge double play that was turned in the infield by Zach Bodley and Isaiah Alters to end a Huntingdon scoring chance.
“In relief, Zach Williams did a great job,” McGonigle said. “He was able to throw a lot of strikes and let the defense do the work behind. The double play he got in the sixth was huge. Bodley and Alters did a great job turning it. Then he showed his grit by working out of a jam to finish the sixth.”
Mifflin County scored all three of its runs in the third inning, as Colby Bodtorf, Dobson and Jaxson Pupo each recorded RBIs. Mifflin County improved to 4-0 on the season with the victory.
