Hileman then fanned Justin Bishop to end the inning and the Eagles threat.

Lawson then drove a hard grounder to the hole at short. Phillips moved quickly to his left and caught the ball before it got into left field and threw to David Kiser at second to force Lane.

Bishop then hit a hard grounder that was inside the first base line. Justin Trent moved to his left, dove and blocked the ball. Trent got to his knees and threw to Ellis at the plate who tagged Lawson for the third out. Lawson was trying to score from second on the play. Trent did an excellent job stopping the ball then getting a throw to the plate to get Lawson. In the sixth with one out Dustin Hill was safe on a Phil- lips error. Adam Pearcy ground- ed a ball between the mound and first base that Hileman fielded and threw to Cridlin at second to force out Hill.

Children require more than 80 percent of their vaccinations within the f'wst 24 months of life to protect them against disease, disability and even death. Significant progress has been reminding the public of the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable dis- eases. Our goal is that every child will be immunized "on time, every time" by two years old. Don't wait until a child goes to school to catch up on vacc- inations-get your child vaccin- ated on schedule before your child becomes exposed to an infectious disease. Since 1994, NIW has called to action parents, caregivers, and healthcare providers to ensure that infants are fully immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases. To further this effort, LENOWISCO Health District the sixth inning. Coeburn took back momen- turn in the top of the sixth when they plated five runs to take the 12-5 lead. Castlewood tried to pull closer, plating three runs in the bottom of the sixth to make the score 12-8 going into the final inning. Both teams man- aged three runs apiece in the seventh for the final margin of 15-11. preventable disease and death still exist and can be passed on to people who are not immune- ized. Our success also means that many parents today don't under- stand the importance of child- hood immunization and what diseases can be prevented. Most young parents have never seen these diseases or the suffering they can cause, therefore are less concerned about the need for immunization compared to their routine plays as they made nine errors and gave up nine un- earned runs. Jon Byerley led Castlewood offensively, going two for three, scoring twice, driving in two runs and blasting two doubles. Devin PuckeR, Ethan Collins and Gage McCoy each drove in two runs for the Devils.
