Kiski Valley rallies for win

| Monday, July 30, 2007

BELLEFONTE -- Following an 11-run loss to open the Region 7 American Legion tournament, Kiski Valley rebounded with an 8-7 win over East Butler on Sunday.

Kiski Valley trimmed the lead to 7-4 in the ninth inning, and Jon Moore's bases-loaded double tied the score. Mooree moved to third on a wild pitch and scored the winning run on J.P. Samay's suicide squeeze bunt.

Moore was the winning pitcher. Nick Rossmiller took the loss.

"I have to give our kids credit, and I have to give East Butler credit," Kiski Valley coach Dennis Montgomery said. "We just kept playing with it. Rossmiller threw a heck of a game. Every game from here on out will be the same type of close game."

Jake Shaffer went 3 for 5 to pace Kiski Valley. Matt Orlowski went 2 for 4 with a double. Blake Pavlik scored two runs.

Kiski Valley will continue play at 2:30 p.m. today at Governor's Park in Bellefonte.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
