PHS Baseball team rallies to win season-opener

The Prescott High School Baseball Team rallied from a 4-0 deficit by scoring eight unanswered runs from the fifth inning onward to win 8-4 over Altoona in the Cardinals' season-opener Tuesday afternoon at Firehall Field in Prescott.

PHS scored five runs on two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning, including a two-run double by Pete Brookshaw, a two-run RBI-single by Bo Smith and a past ball which scored Jake Block from third base. Then in the sixth two errors plated two runs for the Cards and Zach Dolan drove in a run on a base hit.

Winning pitcher Andrew Rozmairek came to the mound in the sixth inning. He pitched out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the seventh with a strkeout and a 6-4 double play, one of four Prescott turned in the ballgame.
