Lone Pine Takes Two from Bishop

Lone Pine Baseball and Softball made the short trip to Bishop Wednesday afternoon for a pair of games.  The Golden Eagles surely enjoyed the ride home taking with them a pair of wins.  Traditionally the Golden Eagles softball team plays the Bronco JV, but this year Lone Pine wanted a shot at the Bronco varsity, they responded with a 7-3 win.  In recent years the baseball match up is on the schedule as a confidence booster for the Broncos heading into High Desert League play.  This year the Broncos leave the Lone Pine game with more questions than answers after a 8-7 Golden Eagle win.  Bishop Union held a 7-4 lead heading into the 7th inning Wednesday afternoon, but Lone Pine put a 4 spot on the board in the top of the 7th to win.

Bishop Union will have one more tune up before league play.  The Broncos travel to Ridgecrest Burroughs Saturday for double headers set for 11am and 1pm.  Bishop Union starts HDL play on Tuesday, April 12 at Rosamond.  Lone Pine continues their busy week hosting Boron Friday.
