Conrad Chiropractic/Lilly American Legion's win streak finally came to an end a week ago today to Johnston Realty. The amazing streak was snapped at 13, but what a streak it was.
It included numerous games that ended by a mercy rule, including two against ProActive Sports and two over Sheetz. Conrad Chiropractic/Lilly American Legion also won by mercy rule once against Mountain View Archery and Crown Jewels/Cox Refractories.
Lights out at Vets Field
For about the last two weeks, Vets Field has been without lights. Its lights have not been working, and that has forced Altoona Greater City Baseball League president Brian Farabaugh to make some adjustments as to when and where the night games scheduled at Vets Field will be played.
"We've been scrambling the last couple of weeks," Farabaugh said. "It's been very chaotic."
n Two hitters for Wise Trailer Sales - Darian Herncane and Nate Negri - combined to go 11-for-19, score nine times, hit two doubles, a triple and knock in eight through Friday's games.
n Jim Harshbarger, of Mountain View Archery, went 6-for-9, hit a double, knocked in a pair and scored one in three games.
n Conrad Chiropractic/Lilly American Legion's Brent Matish and Ryan Gallaher had great weeks, going a combined 10-for-24, scored six runs, a double and a triple and one RBI.
