YOUTH LEGION BASEBALL: KOVACIK INSURANCE 14, UNITED NRG 4
Kovacik Insurance scored all of its runs after the third inning to put away United NRG in an Indiana County Youth Legion game shortened to six innings due to the mercy rule in Blairsville.

Doug Pollock, Joseph Faulk and John Fetchko added two hits apiece. Daugherty and Pollock doubled.
Nate Fabrizio had two hits, including a double, for United NRG.
Corey Ramsden struck out six and walked two in six innings to earn the win.
Losing pitcher Beau Sheriff struck out three and walked three.
