SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - James Buchanan's baseball team needed five runs in its final at-bat Friday to tie Gettysburg in a PIAA District 3-AAA play-in game. The Rockets got four. The last-ditch rally came close, but Vince Cristofano's blooper to right that at first looked promising instead was tracked down by right fielder Zach Michael for the final out of Gettysburg's 8-7 victory, ending JB's season. Warriors reliever Drew Swomley struck out JB's 4-5-6 hitters in the sixth, and Sean Manahan's RBI single and D.J. Cool's RBI double helped give Gettysburg an 8-3 lead in the bottom half.
