"Don't swing!" Those words, yelled by St. Marys' Vincent Jacob as he stole home on the first pitch to Rudy Gleixner in the top of the sixth inning, broke open a tie ball game and started a 10-run rally by the Post 103 squad. The game was tied at 1-all headed into the sixth, and Jacob's run gave St. Marys their first lead. They never looked back, eventually coming away with an 11-1 victory. St. Marys hosts Ridgwway tonight in the opening round of the Elk County Legion Baseball League playoffs.
