Comeback Kids do it Again, Golden Eagles Down Bald Eagle

The Tyrone Golden Eagles played lights out on a game when the lights were out for most of the morning. This game was competitive from the first pitch to the final out. Tyrone was down for most of the game but never gave up.

Tyrone’s offense was led Kevin Lehner, Bryce Hunter, and Matthew Savino. The trio combined for 8 hits, Lehner collected 4 hits and Hunter and Savino both added two.  Cory Lehman and Andrew Pearson combined to drive in 5 of Tyrone’s 6 runs.

Bald Eagle jumped on the board first as they scored 1 run off of Lehman in the top of the first. Tyrone responded in the bottom of that inning on a two run double off the bat of Cory Lehman.

Both teams put up zeros in the second inning, Bald Eagle reclaimed the lead in the top of the third inning which ultimately chased Lehman out of the game after only 2 ⅓ innings.

Bryce Hunter came in after Lehman and shut down the Bald Eagle offense giving Tyrone the opportunity to formulate a comeback.

“I just came in to do my job for the team. I really love our no quit attitude this year, we really all believe in each other,” said Bryce Hunter

Bald Eagle added another run in the top of the 6th taking a 5-2 lead over Tyrone. Tyrone was not about to let their undefeated record slip away. Their bats exploded for 5 runs in the bottom of the 6th, their runs were drive in by Andrew Pearson (2), Cory Lehman, Rodney Shultz, and Matthew Savino.

Tyrone sent Rodney Shultz out to the hill in the top of the 7th trying to close the game keeping the Golden Eagles perfect. Shultz started off the inning a bit rocky as he gave up 1 run on 2 hits. After the slow start Shultz mowed down the next three batters he faced securing the victory for Tyrone.

Bryce Hunter picked up the win for Tyrone who’s record moves to 7-0 on the season with a 5-0 record in the Mountain League. They look to improve to 8-0 as they take on Williamsburg at home today.
