The Bison Baseball squad used a complete game effort by junior righty Brandon Orsich to defeat Bearcats 6-4 on a bitter cold day in Huntingdon. Orsich surrendered 7 hits but walked only one batter in his first appearance of the year. Losing 4-1 in the seventh inning, the Red and Black responded with a 5 run rally, the big blow being delivered by first baseman Thomas Summers. After Jonathan Trimpey reached on an error and Josh Sorbera drilled a single to right, Summers blasted a bomb deep over the left field fence. After a pitching change, the Bison tacked on two more runs to complete the comeback. Orsich pitched out of a two on, no out situation in the bottom of the 7th to seal the win. Josh Sorbera and Tommy Hazel had two hits each, while Noah Cline drove in the first Bison run with a single in the 2nd inning.
Clearfield’s next outing is set for Tuesday, March 31st at Bellefonte.

On a sunny but very cold day, the Bison squad visited Martinsburg and came away with a surprising upset of the Central Scarlet Dragons. Senior lefty Thomas Summers threw an impressive 2-0 shutout against the defending Mountain League champs. Scattering 4 singles and striking out 7 batters, he was in control the whole game. Outstanding defensive plays by Cole Kephart, Spencer Herrington and Tommy Hazel helped him along the way. Josh Sorbera drove in the first Bison run in the 3rd inning and Tommy Hazel scored in the 4th on the back end of a Bison double steal. Dan Collins and Kephart hit doubles.
Next up for the Red and Black is a trip to Huntingdon on Thursday, March 26th.

However, after that it was all Chimichagas, as they registered three straight victories by the scores of 19-5, 11-3, and 9-0.
Leading hitters for the champs were Will Myers (6 hits, 4 doubles, 4 RBIs), Dan Collins (5 RBIs, HR), and Jon Trimpey (4 hits, 6 runs). Marcus Luzier (4 RBIs, HR), and Cole Kephart (3 RBIs, HR, double) led the Toxic Bunnies offense.

The weekend began on Friday evening with a well-attended batting practice session, followed up with a social hour at the Rec Park. The weather cooperated nicely for that. However, the next morning brought heavy cloud cover and several hours of steady rain.
Despite the bad weather, over 30 former players showed up for the game. They patiently waited through a two hour rain delay before the skies finally cleared. After Clearfield’s newest professional player, Chad Zurat (Colorado Rockies organization) threw out the first pitch, the game got underway with 24 alumni actually participating. The Red Team battled the Black Team for six innings which ended in a 6-6 tie before being called by mutual agreement. Next years alumni weekend is scheduled for Sept 11th and 12th, 2015.
