Wyatt Sharp was a key player in Penns Valley’s 8-5 loss to Central on Tuesday and its 5-1 win over Clearfield on Wednesday.

Sharp combined for four hits, including two home runs and a double, in the two games.

Logan Johnson earned the win Wednesday after allowing only six hits and two walks and striking out seven in seven innings.

Sharp was 2 for 3 with a double and a home run, Logan Marcum was 4 for 4 with a double and Colton Treaster had two doubles.

On Tuesday, Sharp hit a home run to send the game to extra innings.

The Rams fell in the eighth inning after a double by Brendon Vollkommer brought in two runs, and a Josh McKnight single made it 8-5.

The Rams (5-6) will face Juniata on Thursday.
