FUNKSTOWN --The towns of Funkstown and Williamsport are close in proximity, but they were on the opposite ends of the baseball spectrum on Friday night.
The Funkstown American Legion Post 211 team exploded on offense in a 16-4 lashing of the Williamsport Nationals.
Right fielder Andrew Yacyk drove in seven runs on just two swings -- a grand slam and a three-run homer -- for Funkstown (3-3). He finished with eight RBIs.
With the bases loaded in the first inning, Yacyk fought off several pitches before Williamsport pitcher Jake Mann hung a curveball and Yacyk belted it the other way.
"I fouled a lot of pitches off. He hung a curveball and I made him pay," Yacyk said.
His next at-bat, with two runners on in the second, also left the yard as Funkstown took a 9-0 lead.
"I was just trying to drive it, but it was a more solid hit than my first hit," Yacyk said.
