Bison Rally in 7th to Defeat Raiders, 5-4

Trailing 4-3, the Bison offense finally came alive in the bottom of the seventh in a thrilling victory at the Bison Sports Complex. After leaving the bases loaded in the 5th and 6th innings, a single by Thomas Summers got things started with one out in the seventh. With courtesy runner Justin Fedder on first, Cole Kephart lofted a long fly ball to the fence in left field. It appeared to be leaving the park for a home run, but the ball caromed off the top of the fence back toward the infield. Fedder scored all the way from first to tie the game and Kephart ended up on third. After Brandon Orsich walked, Sawyer Rowles sent a fly ball into center field just deep enough to score Kephart for the winning run.

Thomas Summers pitched a gutsy game to raise his record to 6-1. The Bison next entertain Tyrone on Tuesday, hoping to remain tied with Central atop the Mountain League standings.
