County League baseball: Doran’s homer lifts Philipsburg

Cody Doran’s walk-off home run in the eighth inning gave Philipsburg a 1-0 win over Clarence in Centre County Baseball League play on Friday night.

The Mounties (8-2) had handed the Pirates (9-1) their only loss of the season.

Friday’s game was ruled by pitching, with Josh Potter striking out seven in a three-hit shutout, and Brian Kochik striking out six in a four-hit loss.

Philipsburg nearly had the game-winner an inning earlier when Brandon Myers doubled and moved to third base on a flyout, but a strikeout ended the threat.
