High school baseball: Darian Herncane’s blast lifts State College

Nick Raquet improved his pitching record while the Little Lions improved to 8-4 with a win over Cumberland Valley on Thursday.

Raquet went the distance, struck out four and walked just one batter while giving up just one run on four hits in the 4-1 win.

Darian Herncane’s sixth-inning homer gave State College a lead it would not relinquish.

Dan Fry added two RBIs for the Little Lions.

“Today was a nice win against a good ball club,” State College coach Bill Tussey said. “It looks like we’re starting to gain a little momentum.”
