'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Elizabeth Forward was leading Ringgold 1-0 going into the bottom of the third inning of Wednesday's Section 4 AAA baseball game.

For the Rams, it probably seemed like the inning never ended.

That's because EF sent 19 batters to the plate and scored 14 runs to cap a 15-0 three-inning win.

The Warriors (5-3, 2-1) got two singles, a triple and six RBI from Ryan Wardropper, who hit a bases-loaded triple and then scored on an error in the big inning.

Steve Welsh had a double and solo home run for EF, while teammates Jake Terrick and Will Scott each had two singles.

Luke Padezan had a no-hitter in the abbreviated contest as the Rams (3-2, 0-2) dropped their second game in as many days.

Frazier 11, Clairton 1

The Commodores (2-5, 1-1) ended a five-game losing streak in impressive fashion as Roger Cline and Dylan Celaschi combined to pitch a one-hitter.

Cline also had a double and single for Frazier, as did teammate Hunter Clay. Darin Ohler added a double for the winners, who scored four runs in the first inning and four again in the sixth.

SoftballBV Area 7, Elizabeth Forward 1

The Lady Leps (3-6, 2-4) won their third straight game as they upset EF (5-3, 3-1) in Section 3 AAA.

BVA snapped a scoreless tie with five runs in the fifth inning.

The Lady Leps had 11 hits with Emily Frederick (two doubles), Ashley Seman (single, double) and Kaitlyn Faiola (two singles) leading the way. Nicole Ashcraft had a double and two RBI while Alexis Ellin had a double and drove in a run.

Caitlyn Arico had a double for EF, which was held to eight hits by winning pitcher Erica Amoroso.

Bentworth 6, Charleroi 3

The Lady Cougars (4-2) dropped their second straight contest as Bentworth (4-6) scored four unearned runs in the non-section game.

The winners scored four runs in the sixth inning to overcome a 3-2 deficit.

Jordan Swarmer had a double and two singles and Sydney Toth, Morgan Riley and Carina Gottheld got two hits each for Charleroi.

For Bentworth, Aubree Yates and Casey Hite each had two hits.

West Mifflin 6, Yough 0

Yough (2-4, 1-4) got shut out in the Section 3 AAA game as West Mifflin's Paige Flore pitched a two-hitter with six strikeouts.

Flore helped her cause at the plate with three hits.

Losing pitcher Macy Mularski gave up 11 hits and struck out nine with two walks.

Mapletown 10, California 5

The Lady Trojans (0-6, 0-6) remained winless in Section 2 A despite getting a triple from Destiny Gudel and a double from Mckaylee Adams.
