High school baseball: Hollidaysburg earns walk-off win over Bald Eagle Area

Bald Eagle Area rallied to tie the game in the top of the seventh, but Hollidaysburg scored in the bottom of the inning for a 4-3 win Thursday.

In the Eagles’ fourth outing of a five-games-in-five-days week, solid pitching from Kody Hamer kept them in contention to the end before Luke Glass tripled with one out and later scored on Zach Simpson’s walk-off single.

BEA scored one run in each of the last three innings to force the dramatics, with RBI singles from Trey Butterworth in the fifth, Brandon Gettig in the sixth and Colton Comley in the seventh.

The Eagles rapped out 10 hits but left 10 runners on base to contribute to the tight game.

“Coming up with the clutch hits was our problem today,” BEA coach Jim Gardner said. “Once again we had a great performance by our starting pitcher, but we couldn’t support him.”
