Offense was tough to come by early in this one, but when the bats woke up there was little that could be done to slow them down.  Wyevale was up 3-0 then down 7-3, but scored 4 in the 5th and an additional 2 in the 6th to get the win.

Game 62

Wyevale 3

Palermo opened a 2 run lead in the top of the first and extended it to 3-0 in the 3rd.  Wyevale bounced back with a couple of runs, but Palermo tacked on 1 each in the 6th and 7th holding off the Wyevale comeback this time.
