State College Tumbles Clearfield Legion Team 11-1

BOALSBURG – The Clearfield American Legion Post 6 baseball team had plenty of baserunners against State College hurler Dalton Bown Wednesday evening at the Shaner Complex, but Cole Kephart was the only Chief to touch home plate as the hosts won the Central Penn League West Division game 11-1.

Tanner Ogden got to Bowen for three singles while Jon Janocko and Thomas Summers had two hits apiece as the Chiefs collected 10 safeties off Bown, who also issued a pair of walks but struck out seven.

Manager Sid Lansberry’s Chiefs stranded nine runners, only three in scoring position, in falling to 4-3.

Kephart walked and scored Clearfield’s lone run on a double by Summers in the second inning .

Janocko made his first start for the Chiefs and gave up eight hits and six runs, five earned.

State College tacked on five runs, three earned, against Summers in the fifth before Devin Jones came on to put out the fire.

Tanner Witter had three of the winners’ 12 hits and scored three runs.

Kyle Lebarron drove in three runs with a single and a double while Bown aided his own cause with a two-run double.

John Herzing and Derek Van Horn chipped in two hits apiece.

Clearfield, 3-3 in the CPL, will go on the road again Friday to play Penns Valley.
