An outstanding pitching performance by Tristan Lingafelt, a clutch save by Hunter Jackson, and timely hitting by Zack Soellner led the Tyrone baseball team to a 8-5 Mountain League victory yesterday at Penns Valley.

“I struggled at first but thanks to my defense behind me, I was able to get in rhythm and throw strikes and get the outs,” said Lingafelt of his start.
