Brocton Tops Panama In Div. 2 West

BROCTON – The Brocton Bulldogs’ (8-6, 6-4) pitchers combined to strikeout 16 in an 11-5 victory over the Panama Panthers in Division 2 West baseball on Friday.

Dalton Remington earned the win with four innings of work in which he allowed five runs on four hits while striking out seven and walking two. Steve Krystofiak entered in relief and struck out nine of the 10 batters he faced to seal the victory.

After Panama put up four runs in the top of the first, rain and lightning combined to delay the game for nearly an hour.

Brocton climbed back in the game after the delay with five runs in the first three innings to take a lead which they wouldn’t relinquish the rest of the way.

Ryan Johnson was 3 for 4 at the plate with a double and an RBI for the Bulldogs while Remington added a 2 for 4 performance.

Josh Eddy pitched a complete game in defeat with seven strikeouts and 12 walks.

Rick Eddy was 2 for 4 in the loss with a double and two RBIs.
