Bellefonte was the victim of some bad timing Thursday evening.
Clinging to a two-run lead, Mifflin County (4-1) scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, and almost immediately after the go-ahead run crossed the plate, a flash of lightning halted the game, with rain following, for a 3-2 Mifflin County win.
Ross Underhill and Zach Hostetler each singled, before a bunt by Cade Addick was thrown away, allowing one run to score and putting runners on second and third base. A groundout plated the tying run and John Michael Maclay’s sacrifice fly brought in the go-ahead run.
It spoiled a solid outing for Davey Keller, who struck out seven, didn’t walk a batter and only gave up four hits in five shutout innings until the sixth.

The Bandits (2-2), who managed just three singles against Ross Torquato, who struck out six and walked two, saw Zach Musser single and later score on a Logan Harter ground ball that was thrown away, and Musser plated another run with a sacrifice fly.
