Clarence Mounties sweep Spring Mills to advance to championship series

The No. 1 seed Clarence Mounties had no trouble wrapping things up.

The Mounties swept their County League semifinal series with a 10-0, six-inning win over the Spring Mills Braves on Thursday night.

Clarence went 3-0 in the series.

While his outing was cut short by the mercy rule, Clarence’s Justin Taylor had a stellar outing, striking out 10 and allowing only two hits.

He also chipped in at the plate with a two-run double in the three-run sixth inning.

Brian Kochik led all Mounties at the plate with a solo home run and two singles for three total RBIs. Bryce Greene tripled and singled, and three players — Chuck Probst, Derek Jabco and Adam Day — each had a pair of singles.

The Mounties await the winner of the other semifinal series between Philipsburg and Howard.
