Struthers – Luke Peterson’s two-run single in the sixth inning helped give Fitch a 6-2 victory over Cardinal Mooney on Sunday afternoon at Cene Park.

With the game tied at 2-2, Peterson hit a line shot down the right field line allowing two runs to score.

Just a batter earlier, the Falcons were able to tie the game as Alex Sierra legged out an infield single.  The throw got past Mooney’s first baseman, and Zarek Bell scored.
