Friday, Aug. 2, 2013, 9:45 p.m.

Bovard overcame five errors to defeat Blairsville, 5-3, Friday in Game 2 of the Indiana County League championship series.

Bovard leads the best-of-seven series, 2-0.

Game 3 is set for 5 p.m. Sunday at Blairsville.

“It's nice to be up 2-0, but you can't look at it that way,” Bovard coach Mike Johnson said. “Blairsville is a good hitting team, and (pitcher Tim) Buzzard did good job keeping them down.”

After Blairsville tied the score, 3-3, in the top of the fourth inning, Bovard reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the inning.

Steve Anderson drew a one-out walk and scored on a double by Zack Martin. Dan Moyer singled home Martin for a 5-3 lead.

Buzzard allowed four hits and struck out seven. Jordan Truscott was the losing pitcher.
