STATE COLLEGE — The State College baseball team erupted for 13 runs in its final two at-bats to score a 14-4 romp over Carlisle in five innings on Monday at Community Field.
The top eight batters in the lineup had at least one hit apiece as the Little Lions (8-3) pounded 15 hits.
Leading 1-0, State College strung together five hits and a walk in a seven-run explosion in the forth inning. After Carlisle scored four in the top of the fifth, State College scored six runs after two outs in the bottom of the inning. Kenny Craig belted a two-run single and Derek Van Horn ended the contest with a two-run triple.
Caleb Walls, Nick Raquet, Craig (double), Jonathan Bergman, Van Horn and Tyler Hall (triple) each had two hits. Craig drove in three runs, while Walls, Raquet and Van Horn plated two each.
Bailey Ishler allowed just two hits, while walking five and striking out two. Ishler had a no-hitter going before the top of the fifth.
“He sat a long time in the inning before when we got the seven runs,” State College coach Bill Tussey said. “He pitched a strong ballgame.”
