Everything you missed in Centre County Baseball League from June 11, 2017:
Howard hands Clarence Mounties first loss of season
It wasn’t the prettiest of wins — but Howard will still certainly take it.
Behind a solid pitching performance from Dylan Womer, Howard slipped past Clarence 4-0 Sunday in a Centre County League baseball game. Howard finished with just one hit in the winning effort, but that proved to be all it needed.
Never miss a local story.
Clarence’s pitcher walked four straight batters in the first inning. That, coupled with a fielder’s choice RBI, led to a 2-0 first-inning lead that Howard would never relinquish.
Womer allowed no walks in the win, while striking out eight and scattering five hits. Ryan Dyke had Howard’s lone hit, a single.
Howard is now 4-4.
Pleasant Gap grabs 2 wins in doubleheader
PLEASANT GAP Sunday was a day filled with comebacks for Pleasant Gap.
Pleasant Gap trailed in both contests early on but rallied back for two victories — 5-3 in Game 1 and 4-3 in Game 2. In the first game, Lemont led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth — but Pleasant Gap then put together four runs, ignited by a Zach Moerschbacher two-RBI single to take the lead for good.
In the second game, Lemont led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth. But, once again, Pleasant Gap wouldn’t stay down for long.
In the bottom of the fifth, with two outs, Colton Myers smacked a bases-clearing triple to drive in three runs and hand Pleasant Gap a 3-1 lead. Lemont tried to rally, but the game ended on a double play and a 4-3 victory for Pleasant Gap.

CLARENCE Spring Mills’ Hunter Homan pitched a complete game shutout Sunday, as his team cruised past the Clarence Coyotes by an 8-0 score.
Homan struck out five and walked four. Colton Treaster paced all hitters with a single and a three-run homer.
Spring Mills improved to 5-3 with the win, while Clarence dropped to 2-5.
