Bisons’ Season Ends With Third Rainout of Week

HYDE – The 2012 season ended for the Clearfield Area High School baseball team Wednesday afternoon with the players sitting in the dugout after a thunderstorm pelted the Bison Sports Complex.

Cancellation of the Mountain League cross-over game with Juniata when the diamond was deemed unplayable was the third in as many days for the Bisons, who finished 4-13.

Coach Sid Lansberry’s 41st team, which was 1-7 for its second year in the Mountain League’s Allegheny Division, wound up with a .281 batting average.

Five regulars, including the four seniors, topped .300, led by senior infielder/pitcher Kyler Kephart’s .352 average. He had a team-high 20 runs batted in and was second in hits (19), doubles (4) and runs scored (16).

Senior center fielder/pitcher Tanner Ogden paced the Bisons in hits (21), doubles (5) and home runs (2), was a close second in average (.350) and RBIs (19) and was third in runs (15).

Senior outfielder/pitcher Ronny Ogden was third in hits (16), average (.314) and RBIs (13).

Freshman designated hitter/pitcher Thomas Summers and senior corner infielder Coleman Kubala hit .306 and .304, respectively.

Kephart belted the Bisons’ only other homer, and he and Tanner Ogden had the only triples.

Freshman middle infielder Cole Kephart was high in runs scored with 17.

The Bisons were outscored 162-113.

The mound staff was charged with 111 earned runs for a 7.35 ERA and allowed 192 hits in 105-2/3 innings.

Ronny Ogden (1-5, 5.58 ERA), sophomore reliever Wyatt Westen (1-1, 5.96) and Kyler Kephart (2-5, 8.34) worked a combined 86 innings.
