East Juniata’s Caleb Kirk shot a team-best 90 at yesterday’s four-team golf match. Millersburg won, followed by Newport and then the Tigers. Susquenita didn’t field a full team so they were left out of the team scoring.
The Phillies scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth, but still came up a run short in an 8-7 loss to Arizona. The National League-worst Diamondbacks swept the Phillies in a three-game set just last week. Philadelphia will play Arizona again today, tomorrow and Sunday.
A eight-run eighth inning led the Pirates to an 11-7 win over St. Louis.
In area minor league action, Hartford scored four in the ninth to beat Harrisburg, 7-5. Altoona shut out Richmond, 3-0.
