Murfin leads Post 95 to DH sweep with 1-hitter

-A A +A

Despite throwing three innings the night before - and being just 15 years old - Murfin nearly delivered on his half-serious prediction, as the Patoka junior-to-be dominated an overwhelmed host team, completing a Post 95 doubleheader sweep with a one-hit gem.
