Centre County Baseball League playoffs: Lemont completes sweep of Blanchard

From CDT staff reportsJuly 19, 2013 

— The Blanchard Bees looked like they might fight off an early exit from the Centre County League playoffs, taking an early lead against the Lemont Ducks in an elimination game for the Bees.

But Erik Kempton and Kyle Wright had other plans.

The two Ducks hitters drilled back-to-back RBI singles in the seventh to lead Lemont to a 4-3 win Thursday and a sweep of the Bees.

With two outs and runners on second and third base, Kempton hit an infield RBI single that tied the game. Wright followed with an RBI single of his own to complete the walk-off win.

Blanchard was led by Chad Todd’s two singles and Matt McGhee doubled for the bees. Lemont will wait for its semifinal matchup.
