MONDAY RECAP: Bucks rally for opening win

Dunmore was the last of 40 District 2 baseball teams to get its season started.

The Bucks opened with a game worth waiting for, scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning Monday at Schautz Stadium to pull out an 8-7 Lackawanna League Division 3 victory over Old Forge.

Nick Grande was 3-for-4 with three RBI to help make Sam Hannah the winning pitcher in relief.

In another baseball game Monday, Lake-Lehman posted a 10-7 Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 victory over Wyoming Area to match Riverside and Hazleton Area with District 2’s best overall record at 5-0. Ty Federici, who drove in four runs, and Max Paczewski, who scored three times, each had three hits for Lake-Lehman.
