SOMERSET — Austin Sleek and Drew Hemminger combined for a five-hitter, and Michael Flyte batted 2-for-2 with two RBIs to trigger Somerset's 9-3 victory over St. Michael in a Cambria County American Legion baseball game Tuesday.
"To have 13 hits against a quality team like St. Michael ... I was pretty pleased with the offense today," Somerset Post 181 manager Bob Hay said.
Somerset scored three runs in the bottom of the first and three more in the fourth to help nail down the victory. Jake Nickelson batted 2-for-2 with two runs scored and Tanner Stull was 2-for-5 with two runs scored. Alex Dirienzo, Pat Blough and Brent Barron were all 2-for-4 at the plate.
