Ryan McElwee and Taylor Butts combined to lead Bellefonte past Philipsburg 3-1 in American Legion action on Sunday.
Davey Keller picked up a complete-game victory for the Bandits (5-13-1).
“I thought we played well,” Bellefonte coach Frank Menna said. “Our defense was very good. Keller pitched a really good game. They didn’t get to him until two outs in the seventh.”
McElwee started the game off with a double and Butts had a double of his own to drive in McElwee for the first run of the game. In the fifth inning, McElwee reached base on an error and Butts once again drove in McElwee, this time with a single.
