It was a good week for the Springdale American Legion baseball team as Manager Frank Sweeney's squad remained hot with three wins.

After getting rained out against Shaler on June 16, Springdale hosted Monroeville on June 17 and came away with a 2-1 win in 10 innings.

“It was a good pitcher's duel,” Sweeney said. “Andy Marsh pitched six strong innings for us and then C.J. Smith came in and gave us four shutout innings.”

Springdale won the game when Parker Bennett came home on a wild pitch.

Taylor Huber scored the first Springdale run.

Springdale traveled to Monroeville on Thursday and Sweeney's team made sure this wouldn't be a pitchers duel as they scored early and often en route to a 17-2 rout.

Joe Palumbo went five for five and winning pitcher James Serio added three hits.

Springdale ended the week with a big win over Shaler on Friday by a 5-4 score.

“That game kept going back and fourth,” Sweeney said. “That was a nice win for us.”

Smith got the win. Palumbo led off the last of the seventh with a triple and Serio banged a single to end the game. Serio also doubled, along with Camden Kelly.

Springdale is now 6-1 in the division and 8-2 overall.

“We've been playing pretty good ball,” Sweeney said.

“Right now, we have to keep pace with Penn Hills. They only have one loss. Every game with them will be a big one.”
