High school baseball: Penns Valley splits doubleheader with Huntingdon

From CDT staff reportsMay 3, 2014 

— Penns Valley bounced back to beat Huntingdon 8-4 after dropping the first game of its doubleheader 6-2 on Saturday.

“It was huge to get the split,” Rams coach Chuck Romig said. “Honestly, you’d rather win the second and take momentum into the next game.”

In the first game, Wyatt Sharp’s two-run single broke up Huntingdon pitcher Hunter Price’s no hitter in the fifth inning. Price struck out nine and walked six in five innings to get the win for the Bearcats. In the second game, the Rams (4-7) overcame an early 4-1 deficit after Huntingdon’s Tanner Cook hit a grand slam in the first inning.

Penns Valley tied it at 4-4 when David Fox tripled and scored on a passed ball in the fourth. Sharp singled to start the fifth and scored on a Huntingdon error to give the Rams the lead. Fox drilled a two-run single to add to the lead in the seventh.

LJ Johnson pitched a complete game, shutting the Bearcats out in the final six innings.
