WILLOW HILL — The Tussey Mountain varsity baseball team earned a 6-3 victory over ICC South opponent Fannett-Metal, Tuesday.

“It was great to win. We’re starting to do certain things better.”

The Titans held a 4-3 lead before adding insurance runs in the sixth and seventh innings.

Both Brendan Gorey and Kaden Lucko finished the game with two runs scored each. Matt Leonard and Mason Reed added a run apiece.

Leonard finished the game with two hits, while Brady Villa, Reed, and Dawson Rightnour added a hit each.

Rightnour picked up the win on the mound. He threw six innings. He struck out two and walked five. Jordan Berkstresser earned the save after throwing a one-hit seventh inning.
