LAWRENCEVILLE — Chest-high fastballs look just as good to Tony Papale in a minor league ballpark as they do on high school baseball fields. Papale delivered three insurance runs with a seventh inning double and finished the game with four RBIs as North Forsyth defeated Peachtree Ridge 9-5 Saturday night at CoolRay Field, the home of the Gwinnett Braves. "I was just trying to put the ball in play and ended up getting a lot more than I expected," Papale said.
