Nate Cleaver came through with a walk-off single to right-center field to lift Bald Eagle Area past Tyrone 6-5 in eight innings Friday.
Cleaver finished 3-for-5, scored two runs and drove in three to lead the Eagles (4-3). Colton Comly pitched a complete game, allowing all five runs in the third inning and striking out seven. Comly limited Tyrone to one hit after the third inning, giving his team a chance to erase a 5-3 deficit.
Cleaver’s solo home run in the fifth pulled Bald Eagle Area within one. Bryce Greene, who finished 3-for-5, doubled to score Brandon Gettig to tie it in the sixth. After Greene led off with a double in the eighth and advanced to third on an infield single, Cleaver scored him on the single.
