Tyrone Manager Chris Futrick was pleased with his teams performance. “After losing by one run to Bellwood last night it’s good to get back on track with a win. Tyler Golden who had a sore arm for two weeks is back and he is back healthy. If we can keep our pitchers healthy we will be in it at the end.
“I will put my money on Tyler, Matt,  Eric and Donnie against any team in this League.  We had a couple of key hits tonight. Brooks came through with a triple to score two big runs and Taylor and Hunter added two hits apiece. These kids really want to win every game they play and they are improving with each game. We play again Friday night at 6 p.m. against Dick’s Pharmacy, at Mansion Park, come out and support us.”
