WINNING FORM — Cashtown ace Chase King delivers a pitch during Game 1 of the South Penn League championship series against visiting Hanover on Thursday. King went the distance, keeping the Raiders in check as Cashtown claimed a 4-1 victory.

In a second consecutive South Penn League finals series between the cagey veterans of Hanover and the youthful exuberance of Cashtown, the dimension of the game that typically regresses with age played a factor — speed.

The Pirates legged out a pair of infield singles in the fourth inning to tie the game, then blazed home on a pair of shallow outfield singles and a sacrifice fly to win the five-game series opener, 4-1, at home Thursday.
