Cashtown withstood a furious Biglerville rally on Sunday to secure a 6-5 victory that pushed the Pirates into the South Penn League championship series. Cashtown will host Hanover in Game 1 of the best-of-five series beginning on Thursday.
The Pirates (30-4) led 1-0 into the top of the fifth inning when they plated three runs. Ethan Ketterman doubled home Chris Schachle with the first run of the frame before the Black Sox recorded a pair of outs. After Hunter Rang was hit by a pitch, J.C. Collins lined a two-run single to center.
