TYRONE — The Clearfield Area High School had a breakout game at the plate, but 10 hits, four by Brooke Cline, weren’t enough to produce the first win of the season as Tyrone registered all of its hits and runs in the fifth inning to prevail 4-2 Saturday afternoon.
Lady Bison pitcher Abby Fedder was working on a no-hit shutout through four frames, inducing a bases-loaded groundout in the second and starting double plays in the first and fourth that first baseman Makayla Ross completed by throwing out runners at the plate.
After stranding eight runners, Clearfield (0-3) grabbed its first lead of the season in the top of the fifth when Fedder singled to right field and courtesy runner Maddie Lewis circled the sacks on Ross’ hit to deep left.
The Lady Eagles then staged their rally for the Mountain League make-up game victory.
Fedder issued her sixth walk and lost her no-hitter on a double to center by Grace Gensimore. Both runners scored when Hailey Durbin’s grounder was misplayed.
Eric Hanes relieved, and winning pitcher Cate Baran made it 3-1 with a single to left. She advanced to third on Emily Hamer’s hit and a wild pitcher and scored on a safety squeeze bunt by Sydney Shaw.
The Lady Bison added their second run in the seventh on Kyra Mollura’s infield hit, Cline’s second double and a two-out error, but their left on base total rose to 11 with a game-ending popup.
Mollura and Ross each had a pair of singles.
Fedder was tagged with the loss despite allowing only one hit and two earned runs. She struck out two.
Clearfield will travel to Punxsutawney for a non-league game Monday.
