Knight belts game-tying hit Sunday

PLATTSBURGH — In Sunday’s Champlain Valley Baseball League nightcap featuring the Fourth Ward Timberjaxx and Fourth Ward Cardinals, the Timberjaxx were trailing entering the seventh inning.

James Knight Jr., though, tied the game with a two-RBI single to left field. Then, Russell Merrill’s RBI single drove in what proved to be the game-winning run.

The Press-Republican was given inaccurate information, crediting Justin Mahan with the game-tying hit in Monday’s edition.
