SQUEEZING OUT A RUN — Cashtown’s Ethan Ketterman executes a squeeze bunt to score teammate Michael Tempel during Wednesday’s South Penn League game at New Oxford. The Pirates blanked the host Twins, 2-0.

Josh Topper hadn’t pitched since Gettysburg High School’s season-ending loss in the PIAA playoffs on June 3. The young righty didn’t have his usual pinpoint control on Wednesday, but he shut out New Oxford for six innings in helping Cashtown to a 2-0 victory over the homestanding Twins in South Penn League action at New Oxford.

Topper, who threw 60-plus innings during the Warriors’ season, allowed one hit with three strikeouts and five walks. He threw 85 pitches, 51 for strikes.
