Pine-Richland routs Langley

Pine-Richland routs Langley - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review 'Every time we go to states, it seems like we are always overmatched,' said Langley coach Leo Rauterkus, whose team ends the season at 17-6. 'It's every year.'
Another telling quote from the city-league coach about the Pine Richland pitcher: "Karr just overmatched us," Rauterkus said. "That's all. We don't see a kid like that all year."

This is why the city league needs to be abolished and turned into a tournament or senior post-season all star classic opportunity. Meanwhile the teams in the city league need to be in the WPIAL on a day-in-and-day-out basis.

Way to go P-R. Win states this year.

PIAA Baseball: City champ Langley foiled, 10-0 In the second game of a doubleheader at Shaler, Mt. Lebanon edged Allderdice, 2-1, in a Class AAAA first-round game. Allderdice, the City League runner-up, had only one hit off Mt. Lebanon. That means the top two City League teams had only one hit in two games against WPIAL teams.

'This is something that happens every time our team goes into states. We just can't hit,' said Langley coach Leo Rauterkus, whose team finished 16-6.

Karr is 24-1 in his career.

Langley pitcher Matt Barnes was hurt by five errors. Brett Mollenhauer and Mike Morgan each had two RBIs. Pine-Richland scored seven runs in the third inning.
