Bishop drops heart-breaker at Rosamond

BUHS Baseball falls 2-1 in 8 inning dual

Junior pitcher Aaron Chinzi was great Tuesday, however Rosamond was just a bit better.  Chinzi threw a gem on a windy, cold day at Rosamond High School but took the loss 2-1.  Rosamond’s Leonard Grimes opened the 8th inning with a double and scored on the game winning single delivered by Tyler Herrick.  Prior to the back to back hits in the 8th, Chinzi had allowed just 4 Roadrunner hits, all singles.  Chinzi struck out 7 and walked just two batters.

Rosamond Senior Matt Lecomte matched Chinzi pitch for pitch.  Lecomte allowed just 4 hits, a double and triple to Colton Riesen and singles to Clyde McCoy and Jake Traynor.  Traynor walked twice scoring Bishop’s run in the top of the first on a Riesen RBI ground out.  Lecomte stuck out 13 Broncos.
