MOUNT WOLF -- Veteran Dan Srebroski, 35, pitched Mount Wolf over Glen Rock in a battle for first place in a Central League baseball matchup yesterday.

Srebroski pitched a complete-game four-hitter in a 3-2 Wolves victory. That win came after Glen Rock earned a 7-5 triumph over the Wolves in the completion of a suspended game.

As a result, Mount Wolf (22-6, .786) remained percentage points ahead of Glen Rock (23-7, .767) in the battle for the top spot.

"It was just one of those days," Srebroski said, when it was mentioned that he struck out local standout Fritz Allison three times. "Fritz is a good player. He's one of the best in the league. These two teams always play good baseball."

Srebroski then walked away with his two children and gathered congratulations from his teammates.

Glen Rock scored an unearned run in the second inning after a single by Mason Heyne and two Mount Wolf errors, but its lead was short-lived. After two were out in the in the Mount Wolf half of the second, Aaron Myers doubled and Dan Weigle, making up for an earlier error, followed with a home run to left center. The Wolves added a run in the third. Eric Bonds drew a walk from Glen Rock starter Dan Goebeler, was sacrificed to second by Jon Benchich and then singled home by Steve Pokopec. The only other scoring came when Glen Rock's Tim Frisch hit a home run to right center in the seventh.

The game was marked by outstanding fielding plays.

In the second, Brad McCullough, Glen Rock's right fielder, robbed Nate Ebbert of a home run when he reached over the right-field fence. Third baseman Allison, with runners on first third and the infield drawn in, dove to his right for a hard shot off the bat of 16-year-old Danny Dierdorff and then threw out Weigle at the plate. In the Glen Rock fifth, with runners on second and third and two outs, Dierdorff made an acrobatic catch in left center of a ball off the bat Dan Rhodes. The catch by the Northeastern High School student preserved the Wolves lead.

Earlier, Glen Rock made short work of game that was suspended in early June because of darkness with the score tied 4-4 after seven innings. Allison led off the eighth with a single, stole second -- after a failed sacrifice -- and Tim Hare belted a two-run homer over the left-center fence. That was followed by a Tim Frisch drive that cleared the left-field fence and bounded between the houses on Sixth Street.

Mount Wolf scored one in the bottom of the eighth, but could get no closer.

"Nothing is settled," Mount Wolf manager Brad Chambers said. "We will play them four times in two weeks. We play them again on Thursday at Glen Rock."
