FAYETTE – It’s not that Fayette made a lot of mistakes on April 22, it’s just that the Pettisville Blackbirds cashed in on practically every one. The run rule was invoked after five innings, mercifully putting an end to what turned out to be a 19-1 BBC beatdown.
Alex Roth led the 4-4/3-0 Blackbirds by going 5 innings and allowing a run on 2 hits and 5 walks, striking out 7. At the plate, Roth clocked a single and a double.
