  • Perry Central loses twinbill to Paoli

    PAOLI—Perry Central’s miscues on defense led to Paoli’s sweeping the Commodores in a junior high baseball doubleheader Wednesday.
    “They were decent, but we didn’t play as well as we have been,” said Perry Central Coach Denny Hubert. “We didn’t play with a sense of urgency - mainly on defense.”
    Perry Central turned two double plays early in the first game and led 4-2 in the fourth inning. But a dropped third strike with two outs led to two unearned runs that allowed Paoli to tie the game.
