'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.

The South Park and Quinn Construction baseball teams opened with victories Sunday in the best-of-five semifinal-round series of the McKeesport Daily News League.

The second games of the series were scheduled for Monday, with South Park and South Hills play at 6:15 p.m. at Mellon Middle School in Mt. Lebanon, and Quinn Construction and Clancy's Pub meet at 6 p.m. at Beedle Park in Jefferson Hills.

South Park 10, South Hills 2 — Regular-season champion South Park jumped on South Hills early, taking advantage of errors and walks, and rolled to a victory at Evans Field in South Park.

Aaron Lapaglia and Tyler Grasshoff combined on a five-hitter for South Park, which scored two runs each in the first and third innings despite getting just one hit.

South Park scored two in the first on no hits and three walks, and added a pair in the third on one hit and two errors.

Logan Corrigan doubled twice and had three RBIs for South Park, which pulled away with a four-run sixth. Lapaglia scattered four hits over the first five innings, striking out seven and walking four.

Quinn Construction 11, Clancy's Pub 3 — Jim Pasquine pitched a five-hitter and drove in three runs to pace Quinn Construction's victory at Beedle Park.

Aside from the five hits, Pasquine survived six walks. He struck out five.

Quinn Construction erased a 3-0 deficit by scoring six runs in the third inning, sending 11 batters to the plate. Brooks Marzka's two-run single was among five hits, two walks and an error during the inning.

Pasquine had three hits, including two doubles, for Quinn Construction.
