Chiefs Breeze To 15-3 Win at DuBois

DUBOIS — The Clearfield American Legion Post 6 baseball team benefited by 12 walks, three hit batsmen and four DuBois errors  in rolling to a 15-3 Mercy Rule win at Showers Field Tuesday night.

The Chiefs needed only eight hits to pad their record to 8-2-1 and tighten their grip on first place in the Jefferson County League at 6-1.

Hunter Dixon pitched his fifth complete game, notching his fourth victory in five decisions with a five-hitter over five innings, striking out five and walking one.

The Chiefs broke a 1-1 tie with five runs in the second inning, the key hit a two-run double by Eli Glass that gave him an 11-game hitting streak. Seth Bumbarger and Morgen Billotte added RBI singles.

Ahead 6-3, the Chiefs made it an early finish with nine runs in the fifth inning, sending 14 batters to the plate against three DuBois relievers who walked five and hit two.

The only hits were a double by Matt Bailor that drove in two runs and singles by Blake Prestash and Hayden Williams. Every Chief scored except Bumbarger, who had a sacrifice fly.

Bumbarger was the lone Chief with two hits, and he had two RBIs.

Williams and Billotte also drove in two runs apiece.

Garrett Prosper and Alex Beers had doubles for DuBois.

Up next for the Chiefs are back-to-back games against Punxsutawney, Thursday at the Bison Sports Complex at 6 p.m. and Friday on the road at 8 p.m.
