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.

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

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.

Spring Mills shuts out Coyotes

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.
